Police are appealing for public assistance after a diver’s buoy was located in Balgowlah Heights.

At about 11am on 7 July, emergency services were called to Grotto Point Reserve, Balgowlah Heights, following reports that a diver’s buoy was floating close to shore.

A diver’s buoy is usually used to mark the location of a diver or is towed by a spear fisherman when underwater; however, no diver or spear fisherman was found near the buoy.

Officers attached to Northern Beaches Police Area Command attended the scene before extra resources from Marine Area Command commenced a search operation in the area.

While the buoy is potentially lost, police hold serious concerns for the potential owner of the buoy’s welfare.

The buoy is bright orange in colour with a black ‘adreno’ logo, and small blue and white flag attached.



As inquiries continue, police are appealing to anyone who may have information about the buoy’s owner to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

If you may have lost the buoy whilst diving or spearfishing in this area, please let the police know.
