newsNews24 reports that volunteers have joined in the search for eight missing fishermen in the vicinity of Cape St Francis after the search area was extended on day four of the recovery efforts.  

This follows the capsizing of fishing vessel Maredon in the early hours of Sunday.  Sixteen people had been on board.  One person has been confirmed to have died and seven were rescued.  Eastern Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Majola Nkohli on Wednesday said that, while police were leading the operation, a number of services were supporting them as the area was "huge", with the coastline of Jeffreys Bay having been included in the area to be combed.  Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Senzeni Zokwana is expected to visit the families this week.
