Two students from the University of the Western Cape went missing while swimming at Strand beach over the weekend.
According to Craig Lambinon, NSRI's spokesman, the two students entered the water in a no-swimming zone, notorious for its big waves and strong rip currents.
Police divers spent the whole of Sunday afternoon searching for them and will resume doing so today.
Police divers are continuing with the search operation. They are more likely to be joined by the Cape Town fire and rescue services divers today.— Craig Lambinon, NSRI's media spokesman
Lambinon says another man went missing at Monwabisi beach on Sunday and the divers will have to work on both cases.
According to EWN, it’s understood the trip to the beach was organised by a church group from the institution.
