The search for two divers reported missing off the coast of Bluff has been called off.

Dive squads started looking for the men yesterday afternoon when a member of the public reported seeing the two being swept out by the current.

However, a police spokesperson said this morning that no one had been reported missing and no one was overdue to return from sea.
