Searchers are again looking for the two people still missing off the South Otago coast after a fishing trip earlier this week.

Whetuki Sam Kopua, 77, and Matekino Lucy Burling, 60, from Owaka were aboard a five metre boat that was pulled from the sea yesterday off Nugget Point.

Dozens of searchers are scouring the Catlins coastline, and police are also using a helicopter and boats to look for any sign of the pair.
