Has anyone heard any updates on this?

I wonder what happened to him? Bumped his head on his water craft or on the bottom of the lake, or perhaps just got trapped in a shopping trolley?

CT has updated their report to say they believe the man was 56-year-old Bobby Dungca, a regular on the lake. Very sad.

…and In Wollongong Tonight (WIN News) last night were still reporting that “the search continues” despite the body being found more than three hours before they went to air. Proof that the program is now being pre-recorded early in the afternoon or possibly in the morning.
