A search is underway for the owner of several items that were found in waters off the NSW South Coast.
Spearfishing equipment was found by a fisherman in about six metres of water and about 100 metres from Narrawallee Beach Headland, just north of Mollymook Beach, about 3pm on Tuesday.
Items were handed into officers from South Coast Police District a short time later and an investigation began with help from the Marine Area Command to find the owner.
The equipment found includes:
Green Typhoon rail gun and spear
Go-Pro 4 camera with attached orange Adreno Spear Master buoy
Ocean Hunter black fish bag
Black LED torch
Red Crocs-style shoes
Clues about owner found on GoPro
Police have reviewed images on the GoPro's memory card and believe the owner of the gear may be a man of Asian appearance, about 20 to 30 years old and of a slim build.
The man was believed to have been driving a Jeep-style vehicle.
Officers have conducted a land and sea search of the Narrawallee Headland area, but failed to locate the owner of the equipment.
PolAir are conducting a subsequent search of the surrounding area on Wednesday.
South Coast police have not received any missing persons reports related to this incident at this stage.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
