CAPE TOWN - The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) has asked local fishermen in Kleinmond to be on the lookout for a man who went missing at sea.

A boat carrying six fishermen capsized on Monday afternoon between Hermanus and Gordons Bay.

While one man is still missing, the body of another has since been recovered.

The NSRI's Craig Lambinon says police divers have joined the search.

"There were six people on board. Four men who remained at the boat were rescued. The police dive unit are continuing with an ongoing search operation for the missing person."
