Sonar used to search for Tasboatie

Multi-beam sonar technology is used to find a missing boat carrying a man who was last seen a week ago off northwestern Tasmania.

Thomas Court left the town of Wynyard on a 17-foot motorboat with friends Isaiah Dixon and Bree Anna Thomas around noon on Monday.

The bodies of Dixon and Thomas were found ashore on a nearby table cape Wednesday afternoon.

Air and sea surveys have yet to find evidence of a yellow and white 17-foot Caribbean half-cabin vessel or Mr. Court.

Hydrographic surveyors will conduct a multi-bean sonar search on Monday in the “region” identified by Tasmanian police.

Police previously said it would target an underwater area of ‚Äč‚Äčabout 320 hectares.

Authorities are urging community members not to participate in maritime search activities because of their strict conditions and desire to ensure a collaborative approach.

Isaiah’s uncle John Paul Dixon said last week that a trio from the northwest sat on the beach and went swimming together under the waterfall on the last day.

They were reported missing on Monday afternoon when they did not return.

Dixon thanked the community for his support after flowers and messages were left in Wynyard Park and many locals hit the water on Tuesday to help with the search.

Isaiah, who grew up with Mr. Kurt, is remembered to have a beautiful heart, he said.
