Divers search for body in underwater cave
A 29-year-old female diver is presumed dead after she went missing in Tank Cave, near Mount Gambier in South Australia's south-east.
Fellow divers reported the Victorian woman missing earlier this afternoon.
Superintendent Trevor Twilley from the Limestone Coast Police says trained divers have joined the search for the missing diver.
"Apparently you have to have special qualifications and a ticket to be able to dive in that cave because of the complexities and nature of the cave itself," he said.
"Our water operations divers don't have those qualifications so we're working very closely with the Cave Diving Association of Australia to see what kind of assistance they can provide us."
Rob Dycer owns the 270-acre property and leases the underwater cave to the Cave Divers Association.
"They go in there every second week roughly, so roughly about 26 times a year," he said.
"These people are the uttermost professionals. They are very, very good at their job."
