Western Australia police are continuing their search for missing man Sean David Mitchell.

The 37-year-old former Rotorua man was last seen drinking with friends at a beer cafe on Murray St in Perth at 5pm last Friday.

A call for help from the public with any information about Mr Michell has been made on the Western Australia police's Facebook page.

In the post, police say they believe Mr Mitchell used his Smart Rider card in Perth at 9pm but did not tag off.


"About 10pm that night he called a friend and spoke to her about going on a friend's yacht. On Tuesday a member of the public notified police that he had located a bag belonging to Mr Mitchell with some of his belongings still inside in the Swan River at Blackwall Reach in Bicton."

Mr Mitchell is described as being fair skinned with a medium build, short red hair and blue eyes.
