A large-scale search for a reported sighting of what appeared to be a baby wrapped in a plastic bag floating in shallow water has been scaled down.

Emergency services resumed the search at 7am on Monday after several people reported seeing a baby wrapped in a plastic bag on Sunday afternoon.

NSW Police and emergency services were called to Yarra Bay in La Perouse about 5pm on Sunday after a number of witnesses said they’d seen the baby.

Police Marine Area Command, Polair, NSW Ambulance and several rescue helicopters scoured the area but the search was suspended at 7.45pm due to poor visibility.
