·1-min read

Emergency crews will continue their search at first light for a missing fisherman off Green Head, north of Perth.

Waikiki man Ian Gray, 46, was reported missing on Sunday evening.

Police said he was overdue because he usually returned about 4pm.

His vehicle and trailer remain at the boat ramp.

The search stopped on Monday afternoon due to poor weather and will resume on Tuesday morning.

The search comes after a bulk carrier crew member who went missing off the West Australian coast was rescued after spending the night in the water.

The Chinese national, aged in his 30s, was reported missing on Sunday evening from a vessel anchored about 11 kilometres off the coast of Geraldton.

An initial search co-ordinated by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority failed to find the man.

He was later found on Monday morning about 10km off the Oakajee coast and 24km northwest of Geraldton.

The man was taken to hospital for a medical assessment, police said.
