Two Greek fishermen tragically drowned on Friday night whilst fishing in Port Phillip Bay near Frankston.

The bodies of 41 year old Paul Katelas and his 71 year old uncle George Emmanuel were found on Saturday after an extensive air and sea search on the bay.

Cranbourne resident and father of three, Paul Katelas, was due to celebrate his daughter’s first birthday on Saturday.

George Emmanuel was well-known in the Greek community as he had served as President of the Lassanis Club of Kozani.
