The elderly man who apparently stepped off a Pulau Ubin-bound bumboat and fell into the sea on Wednesday is still missing.

Yesterday, police released a video capture of the man taken from closed-circuit television records from the Changi Point Ferry Terminal.

Police are trying to contact his family. Anyone with information should call 1800-255-0000.

Witnesses said the Chinese man, said to be in his 70s, was travelling alone when he boarded the boat on its way to the offshore island at around 2.15pm.
