Federal Police requested the helicopter from Moruya to search an area just south of Jervis Bay after high-end camping equipment was found on a local rock shelf below a sheer cliff.

Federal Police are searching the area directly south-east of the navy air strip, trying to find the possible owner and called in the helicopter for assistance.

It is not known if the owner of the equipment has fallen into the water.
