The brother of Melbourne defender Michael Hibberd and one other man have been lacking since leaving for a fishing journey earlier than daybreak on Sunday morning.

Emergency companies are trying to find Geoff Hibberd and Jason De Silva who did not return to shore after going fishing in a three-metre tinny at Westernport Bay in southern Victoria.

Police stated a 20-year-old man and 33-year-old man set out someday earlier than 6am from the Flinders boat ramp.

They have been advised the boys usually fish off the Flinders coast, west of Phillip Island.

Sturdy winds and heavy rain battered the Mornington Peninsula on Sunday, with a peak gust of 63kmh recorded at HMAS Cerberus that morning.

The boys haven’t been discovered.
