FOUR men set out on a fishing trip on Wednesday night but have yet to return home.

AN ocean search is underway for a family of four fishermen missing on a boat between Cockburn and Rottnest Island.

A 50-year-old Coodanup man, his 24-year-old son, his brother and another 31-year-old family member went out to Rottnest Island on a boat named “Yeah Buoy” on Wednesday night.

One of the missing fishermen spoke to his fiancée about 10am on Thursday and told her they were going around the back of Rottnest Island to fish.

Family members raised the alarm last night after they didn’t return home.

Police say no emergency calls have been received from those on-board.
