Alan Wilson, 63, was last seen on Friday afternoon, but rang a friend that evening while he was working on his boat at the Frankton Marina.

What is believed to be a body was spotted under his boat by police officers using underwater camera gear last night.

A police spokesperson said the dive squad would carry out a search and recover the body.
