Emergency services have called off a search in southeastern Sydney, failing to find a baby reportedly seen by several people floating in shallow water.

Police were called to Yarra Bay in La Perouse about 5pm on Sunday after a number of witnesses said they had seen the baby wrapped in a plastic bag.

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.

The search resumed at 7am on Monday, but had been called off by 2.30pm, after emergency services failed to find anything.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
