·1-min read

Emergency services are set to start a search off southeastern Sydney after eyewitnesses reported what appeared to be a baby floating in the water.

Police called to Yarra Bay in La Perouse about 5pm on Sunday were told an object that looked like a baby wrapped in a plastic bag was seen in shallow water.

Police Marine Area Command, Polair, NSW Ambulance and several rescue helicopters scoured the area but the search was suspended at 7.45pm due to poor visibility and no further sightings of the object.

The search is due to recommence at 7am on Monday.
