Human remains have been found during the search for missing Indian man, Hemant Govekar .
28-year-old, Hemant Govekar had gone to Phillip Island with his family and went for a swim at the Cape Woolamai beach on Christmas day. He was spotted by surfers in trouble about 5.30pm that day. But he soon disappeared from their sight.
The search for him resumed on Tuesday morning and police said human remains were found during the afternoon.
Sergeant Bruce Kent told ABC News the man did not have very good swimming skills. Locals on surfboards tried to rescue him, but the conditions were even too dangerous for them.
Hemant, who hails from Mumbai, recently graduated from the University of Queensland.
His parents are informed about the tragedy and they are making arrangements to come to Australia.
Life Saving Victoria issued a plea to beachgoers to swim between the red and yellow flags over the summer and say extra lifeguards will be on patrol through to New Years.
