They were notified the pair were missing on Monday morning when two walkers found items belonging to the friends, including towels and clothes, on Shelly Beach.

Authorities launched a large-scale ground and water search but have been unable to find the men.

Walkers found their belongings at about 6.30am on Monday (7.30pm GMT Sunday), and police later discovered their rental auto in the beach's vehicle park with a number of personal items, including travel documents, inside.

"This whole operation is about locating and rescuing these young men".

Inspector Peter Neville said he was still hopeful of finding the pair alive.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office confirmed: 'Our staff are in contact with police in Australia and the United Kingdom following reports of a missing British man at Shelly Beach, New South Wales'.

The conditions were "looking good for a search", said unit commander of Marine Rescue Port Macquarie Greg Davies on Wednesday morning.

Social media posts show the two men travelled to Australia in November, spending time in Melbourne and Sydney before travelling north.

"Police divers from Sydney joined the search yesterday and will continue assisting today", police said, raising fears that rescue efforts may soon give way to recovery.

NSWPF later said it would be scaling back the search for the Brit tourist and his pal.

Lifesavers and police have both spoken of how rough the surf had been at the beach.

Mr Ferrieux, a French national, has dark hair, brown eyes, a tanned complexion and is between 175 and 180 centimetres tall.

The police said that they were appealing to anyone who might have seen the men of their Commodore vehicle near the beach auto park or the surrounding streets to contact them.
