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.
