An extensive search of the New Plymouth shoreline has so far failed to find three people missing after they were swept from Paritutu Rock yesterday afternoon.
The police, air force, coastguard, the surf life saving clubs, search and rescue volunteers, and family and friends have all been helping in one way or another
The missing are two students from Spotswood College, and their climbing instructor from the Taranaki Outdoor Pursuit Education Centre known as TOPEC.
The students were part of a group of 11 pupils taking part in a climbing expedition
The principal of Spotswood College and the chairman of its Board of Trustees spoke to Campbell Live, and reporter Rachel Tiffin explains how the climbing exercise went so wrong.

Thank you to the Ministry of Education and Spotswood College for providing support and help for those affected.
A shame the same support wasn't offered in 2006 in my final year of school. - Looks like Spotty took that year hard and made some changes. All the best wishes to all staff and students affected. It isn't easy. Hold your heads up. And let out the tears.
