Australian Man Still Missing At Sea Off PNG Coast

An Australian man remains missing at sea after his fishing boat sunk off the coast of Papua New Guinea.

Australian Maritime Safety Authority have said they are working with PNG authorities, carrying out aerial searches off the coast of Port Moresby for the Australian man, missing with two other men since Saturday evening.

The three men are all employees of accountancy firm KPMG.

A KPMG spokesperson said despite the treacherous conditions, they remain hopeful the men will be found alive.

"We are in close contact with the families, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and authorities," the spokesperson said.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance for the man's family
