The missing 13-year-old boy has been found safe and well on a houseboat about 50 meters offshore from the Mooney Mooney public wharf.

About 4.40pm (Thursday 28 January 2021), a member of the public noticed the boy and approached the houseboat. He brought the teen back to shore and contacted police.

He has no visible signs of injuries and is currently being assessed by NSW Ambulance paramedics.

Police would like to thank the public for their assistance.
