A Sealord crew member is missing and a search under way in the Pacific Ocean near the coast of Cape Palliser. The crew member did not report for duty on one of the company’s fishing vessels, the Otakou, yesterday morning. A ‘‘full muster’’ was conducted to confirm he was missing before a search commenced and authorities were notified, a statement from Sealord said. A Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ) spokesman said they were notified about 11.30am, and the man may have been in the water up to 50 minutes before they were called. Searching continued last night.
