And on Friday, Hugh Jackman was spotted wearing a face mask as he enjoyed a walk in the city, where he's been in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. The 51-year-old cut a casual figure in a black T-shirt from the Laughing Man Coffee Company, which is an ethical coffee shop chain that he co-founded.

'It saddens me, his boat has gone down … I can only hope he's got a life jacket on and he's made it to land,' he said.

Police are still investigating the disappearance.

This is the second time within weeks emergency services have launched a rescue mission for Mr Higgins and his 33ft vessel.

The fisherman and his friend Derek Robinson, 48, sparked South Australia's largest-ever maritime search when they went missing while travelling from Coffin Bay near Port Lincoln to Goolwa on September 3.

Jennifer Lopez to headline Latin Music Week with Maluma chat

  Jennifer Lopez to headline Latin Music Week with Maluma chat Jennifer Lopez and Maluma are teaming up to quiz each other about their lives and careers as part of Billboard's Latin Music Week. The collaborators will talk candidly about their backgrounds, their music, and how Latinos are changing the landscape in both Hollywood and the music industry. They will also discuss their upcoming film, Marry Me, in which they play music superstars Kat Valdez and Bastian, who are about to get married before a global audience of fans. But when Kat learns, seconds before her vows, that Bastian has been unfaithful, she decides to marry Charlie, a stranger in the crowd, instead.

They were eventually found on September 10, just hours after the search operation was called off.

Despite missing for nearly a week, Mr Higgins claimed he had no idea about the rescue mission.

'We didn't even know anyone was looking for us,' Mr Higgins said at the time.

'I didn't ask to come get rescued. I knew exactly where we were.'

He believes the trouble was sparked when one of the propeller's three blades broke off after hitting a turtle or submerged log.

The massive search operation - covering more than 120,000 square kilometres - involved police, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and members of the Royal Australian Air Force.

It also involved Kangaroo Island and Volunteer Marine Rescue members.

Crews spent days searching an area larger than Tasmania covered in an attempt to find the men.

Fears were raised when the men were not located after several weather warnings and days of treacherous conditions.

Freelance video journalist Gary Juleff told the ABC when police arrived on Tuesday morning following the distress call, the boat had vanished.

'When I got down here, nobody could see the boat,' Mr Juleff said.

'(Police) tried to phone him back - no answer - so the answer to this question is 'nobody knows'.

'They said there's nothing out there and we don't know where he is.'

Over the weekend, Mr Higgins found himself in trouble again when the Margrel ran aground on a sandbar in Victor Harbor.

The rescue mission is ongoing.

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said a second search party for the vessel was 'frustrating' for authorities.

'I think it's fair to say there's an element of frustration that the state's resources are being dedicated to this for a second time,' he said.
