A body has been found after a skipper went missing when his boat overturned in a creek in Western Australia’s north.
The vessel overturned at Airport Creek, a tidal river system about five kilometres south-west of Derby, on Sunday afternoon with two men, a woman and two girls on board.
The four passengers waded through marshland to safety. But the skipper remained missing.
His 6.4-metre Chivers sports cab was found on the shoreline about 17 kilometres south of its capsized location.
On Monday afternoon (ADST), WA Police confirmed a body had been found, believed to be that of the missing man.
His family has been alerted and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
