A man who jumped off a boat into the water by St Julian's late last night remains missing at sea, sources have said. 

The Fernandes was returning to shore following a boat party when a group of revellers leapt off the boat and into the sea. 

An AFM boat was immediately dispatched to the scene, with officials fishing three people out of the water. 

Another man who reportedly jumped into the sea, believed to be a Frenchman, was however not found. 

A late-night helicopter search and rescue operation failed to find the man and an AFM helicopter was dispatched again this morning to continue the search. 

The search is still ongoing, an AFM spokesman confirmed.
