Top Sydney DJ one of two missing men

THE second fisherman missing off the NSW Central Coast has been identified as Sydney DJ Richard Choi.

Two days of searching have failed to find any trace of 44-year-old father of two Damion Diamond and Mr Choi, who is also know as DJ Akira.

The men left the Norah Head boat ramp on Sunday morning in a 4.6-metre runabout.

They were intending to go fishing at Bird Island, four nautical miles to the north-east, despite warnings from locals of bad weather and deteriorating sea conditions.

Mr Diamond from The Entrance, and Mr Choi, 37, sent an emergency text message on Sunday night saying they were out of fuel and needed help.

The search was suspended on Monday evening and resumed at first light on Tuesday.

Mr Choi is renowned in Sydney’s dance music scene, having DJ’d at major events and parties for almost 20 years.

Three Water Police vessels, the police helicopter and police on jet skis were searching on Tuesday, a police spokesman said.
