The search for missing Elliston teacher, Simon Baccanello, has continued on the West Coast, days after he was reportedly attacked by a shark at Walkers Rock Beach.


Emergency services have located two items of interest in relation to the search, including what appears to be a piece of wetsuit material and small pieces of white polystyrene, which could be material from a surfboard.

Both items will be forensically analysed by police.
