Two men feared dead after going missing in waters off the South Australian coast a week ago have been found alive.
Tony Higgins, 57, and Derek Robinson, 48, left Coffin Bay on the Eyre Peninsula in a 10-metre, wooden-hulled fishing boat called the Margrel, bound for Goolwa last Thursday.
They reported engine trouble to a friend on Friday night saying they were going to divert to Kangaroo Island.
When no more was heard from the men, the friend raised the alarm on Sunday, prompting a large-scale aerial search covering more than 103,000 square kilometres.
SA Police only called off the search about 8pm (local time) on Wednesday.
But early on Thursday police made contact with the men, who told officers they were at Salt Creek, southeast of Adelaide, the ABC reported.
