Emergency services at Waranga Basin on Friday last week.

Police have called off the search for a Shepparton man who has been missing at Waranga Basin near Rushworth since Thursday last week.

A Victoria Police spokesperson yesterday confirmed the search for the man, 26 and believed drowned, has been called off.

The man went missing in the waters of the basin when he attempted to swim to shore after the engine of his vessel stopped 1.5km from shore.

He was in the boat with his partner, brother and a nine-month-old child.

He attempted to swim for shore before turning back, but went under the water and was not seen again.
