Emergency services were called about 6pm yesterday after the person disappeared.

The search is continuing today at the section of the river that runs through the Hamilton Gardens.

A police spokesperson said this section of the gardens is closed to the public while the search is being carried out.

A Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew did not find any sign of the person last night, and searches by boat and jet ski downriver towards Claudelands Bridge continued until nightfall.
