Two bodies have been found in the search for three people missing at sea off Tasmania’s north-west coast for two days.

On Monday, Isaiah Dixon, Thomas Courto and Bree-Anna Thomas set out on a day trip from the north-west coast town of Wynyard on a 5-metre yellow-and-white half-cabin motorboat.

They failed to return and by Monday evening they were reported missing.

Their boat was last seen anchored in Boat Harbour, north-west of Wynyard, around midday on Monday.

A land, air and sea search was carried out all day Tuesday and resumed again today, with strong winds forecast for this evening.

Police confirmed this afternoon that the bodies of a man and a woman had been found washed ashore near Table Cape, less than 10km west of Wynyard.

Police are continuing to search for the body of the third man who had been on board the vessel.

The initial search for the trip spanned from Wynyard to Rocky Cape. On Tuesday afternoon the area was widened to span about 1,400 square kilometres across most of the north-west.

Police said they understood it to be “just a group of friends who just went out for a day trip” in nice weather. 

Mr Dixon had a boat licence and the boat belonged to his father, police said.

More to come.
