THE LOCAL community is in shock following the drowning of a 38-year-old man at Portrush.
Jaroslaw Andrykiewicz is believed to have been swept off the rocks and into the sea at Ramore Head at around 4.25pm on Saturday.
Mr Andrykiewicz was a Polish national residing in the Moy area of Dungannon.
On Sunday the search was temporarily suspended due to the severe weather conditions.
However the recommencement of the search operation will begin again as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.
Police would remind members of the public not to attempt to carry out any independent searches as there is a very real risk to life in untrained and inexperienced individuals attempting to undertake this type of work, particularly given the severe weather conditions.
