Due to heightened sea states in Tonga, around the islands of Vava'u and Late, the fishing vessel carrying the search party arranged to look for the two missing Australians was not able to reach Late today as planned.
Therefore, no searching has taken place today.
The Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand has arranged for two vessels to go out and recommence the search at first light tomorrow.
An update will be sent to media around 8am tomorrow.
