A FRANTIC search was underway last night for three people who fell overboard from a vessel that was returning from Rottnest Island.
Two rescue boats were scouring an area about five nautical miles off Cottesloe. Fremantle Water Police were coordinating the search.
A Fremantle Sea Rescue spokesman said three people fell overboard.
Late on Saturday night, there were not yet details about the vessel they fell overboard from – although it’s not believed to be a ferry.
