Police have received no more information to suggest there was a swimmer in trouble in Wellington's Oriental Bay following a report this morning of person in the water holding onto a buoy.
Police received the report at 10am and started inquiries.
They say officers have spoken to a number of people in the area at the time, and the police dive squad conducted a search, but nothing of note has been located.
Police have now left the area.
Police say they would still appreciate any swimmer who may have been holding onto a buoy out from Oriental Bay around 10am today to let the Wellington Police Maritime Unit know by calling 105.
