NSW Police have confirmed that the search for 20-year-old Noa Sage, a Swedish-French man living and working in Manly who fell from a cliff edge on 18 January, has been suspended.

Noa,  is feared dead after falling from Blue Fish point, a section of the North Head walk toward Shelly Beach, Manly on Wednesday 18 January. The local bartender was on a walk with friends when they say he chose to climb about seven metres up a cliff edge.

His friends say he fell and was then swept out by waves.

Earlier rumours his body was found the weekend following the incident have twice been debunked by Manly Observer. 

The search has resumed for the missing tourist.. This is the helicopter first responding after the distress call came through that a man had fallen from the cliffs at North Head.

Officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command, along with the Marine Area Command and surf lifesavers, attended and conducted an extensive search of the water at the time, which continued up until last Friday, 27 January.

A NSW Police spokesperson said, “The search operation concluded for the missing man last Friday (27 January 2023). Officers from Northern Beaches PAC continue to conduct inquiries.”

We understand the boy’s father has arrived in Australia.

Northern Beaches Area Command Police Superintendent Pat Sharkey held a press conference following the event highlighting the difficulty of the search operation due to high swell and urged those walking around the North Head area to stick to the marked trails.
