The search for missing boatie Craig Partridge is being scaled back after extensive sonar searches failed to find anything.

The police maritime unit and teams from the Navy spent the weekend looking for signs of the missing Marlborough man who fell off a vessel early last Tuesday morning in the Endeavour Inlet in Queen Charlotte Sound.

The police search effort for the 45-year-old has now moved into an "active monitoring phase of continuous limited searching."
