Family mourning talk about beloved husband, father killed by shark off SA coast
His suspected death was mourned by the family of a man presumed to have been killed by a shark off the South Australian coast.

Police were alerted just before 5pm on Thursday after 32-year-old Duncan Craw, from regional Victoria, went missing in waters off Port MacDonnell in the lower south-east of South Australia.

A torn wetsuit led them to believe a shark that had been spotted in the area had attacked the man.

"It's impossible to adequately describe our grief and shock," Mr Craw's family said in a statement.

"We wish this was all a bad dream. It's also impossible to fully explain the hole this will leave behind in the lives of all the relatives and friends who love Duncan."
