The body of the 42-year-old man who went missing on Saturday evening at Torre beach, in Oeiras, was found today near Cabo Raso, in the municipality of Cascais, a source from the Portuguese Navy told Lusa.

Speaking to Lusa, José Luís Sousa, spokesman for the Portuguese Navy, said that the man’s body was detected by a Portuguese Air Force aircraft, which was taking part in the search.

According to the official, the man’s body was picked up at around 8am today by the Cascais Lifeboat and is in the Cascais Marina.

The search began at around 8pm on Saturday, after a family member alerted them to the disappearance of a man who was kite surfing on Torre beach in São Julião da Barra.

According to Saturday’s Correio da Manhã, the missing person is a 42-year-old Brazilian citizen.

The search was launched by the Instituto de Socorros a Náufragos (Shipwreck Relief Institute), which was later joined by an airplane and patrol boats from the Cascais and Lisbon Maritime Police, as well as operatives from the Oeiras Volunteer Fire Brigade on the scene, supported by several vehicles.

The Portuguese Navy ship NRP Sines was also involved in the search.
