Jae’s sister Heidi told Daily Mail Australia she’s been in contact with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and is desperate for any information about her brother.
‘We’ve contacted DFAT and they’ve launched an investigation,’ Ms Haydon said.
‘Someone said the person had managed to swim safely to the beach, but there’s no confirmation yet.
‘He’s been there since last Tuesday and we’re just praying he’s OK.’
