A 19-year-old Irishman has gone missing off the coast of Byron Bay in Australia after he got into difficulty while surfing with friends.

The man went missing yesterday at 10:35am local time.

A 26-year-old friend of the missing man was rescued from the water, while another 20-year-old was also rescued after he sustained minor injuries.

The search has since been called off for the night and will resume first thing in the morning.

The Department of Foreign Affairs says it has been in dialogue with the missing man’s family and friends both in Ireland and in Australia.

The identity of the man has yet to be revealed.
