Despite reported sightings hundreds of miles away, Daphne the duck was found just off Rottnest Island, west of Perth.

A major search was launched after the inflatable, worth €600, initially went missing.

The duck’s owners, Cockburn Masters Swimming Club launched an appeal on Facebook to look out for the inflatable. They offered free passes to next year’s event along with swimming merchandise if she was returned.
