Moorabbin Police's Inspector Tim Henson told 3AW two bodies were located on Wednesday after two men went fishing on motorised kayaks in Port Phillip Bay at 6:30am on Tuesday.
The men, a 40-year-old man from Ardeer and a 36-year-old man from Windsor, were reported missing at 11pm on Tuesday night.

At around 6am on Wednesday a body was located at the mouth of the Patterson River and at 8:30am a second body was discovered in Port Phillip Bay.
Both kayaks were found on the Seaford foreshore and Inspector Henson said both men were wearing life jackets, saying 'this just appears to be a real tragedy'.
