THE search for missing Adelaide kayaker William McCallum is continuing today, with little hope of finding him alive.
The police dive team is being briefed and will join the search in Port Esperance in the state's far south.
The 27-year-old was last seen on Sunday afternoon when he set off from Dover jetty, 80km south-east of Hobart, to photograph the coastline.
His sea kayak was found upturned near Hope Island in Port Esperance about 8pm on Sunday.
Two police vessels are today searching the coastline from Gordon to Southport on both sides of the river.
Mr McCallum's family and his girlfriend Cordelia Dravitzki have travelled to Dover from Adelaide and have been briefed on the search by police.
