Two men have been rescued during a marine search for a lost kayaker near Point Peron after police were alerted to a sinking boat by a flare.
Ian Steven Tolli was last seen kayaking in the area at about 1.30pm on Tuesday. His orange kayak found about 300m from the coast near Kwinana beach yesterday.
During yesterday’s search for Mr Tolli, Water Police rescued two people after their four-metre aluminium boat was sunk by a wave.
They were alerted to the incident just before 5pm after seeing a flare activated in the distance.
