A search and rescue operation was launched on the Otago Harbour yesterday when a person reported seeing something that looked like a hat and possible person in the water.

Search efforts started about 1.40pm at Company Bay and continued up to Broad Bay. Five boats - three inflatable rescue boats, the harbourmaster and the coastguard - were on the water.

A police spokeswoman said nothing out of the ordinary had been located and search efforts concluded about 3.30pm.
