Police call on public to help find missing swimmer (Updated)

Police are asking the public for help in finding a man who went missing after going swimming on Tuesday evening in Limassol.

The 44-year-old man was named as Grzegorz Pawelczyk from Poland. He is described as thin, bald and 1.70 to 1.75 metres tall.

The man, a resident of Limassol, travelled to the Molos area with a friend at around 9pm and reportedly jumped into the sea at 11.30pm after consuming some beers.

When he failed to return, his friend notified police. A search at sea and on land was launched.

The search was halted at 2.30am and resumed with the first light of day. Divers, members of the civil defence and volunteers continue to look for the swimmer.

Anyone with information which may assist in locating him is asked to contact Limassol police at 25-805057, any police station or the citizens hotline at 1460.
