Search for shark attack victim called off

The search for the remains of shark attack victim Tyna Webb has been called off, with a beach walk by law enforcement officials and lifeguards turning up nothing on Tuesday morning.

"We called off the search... We found nothing," confirmed National Sea Rescue Institute spokesperson Craig Lambinon.

Webb, 77, was attacked and killed by a great white shark while swimming off Fish Hoek beach on Monday.On Monday a sea fisheries vessel, two lifesaving boats and a helicopter combed the sea for her body, with police divers later joining the search. Only a red bathing cap, believed to have belonged to Webb, was found soon after the attack, which has stunned the Fish Hoek community.
