Missing fishermen found

Two missing fishermen have been found safe and well this morning after a rigorous search involving the RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter, the Queensland Police Service (QPS), Water Police and Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR).

The CareFlight helicopter was called in just after 7:30am this morning to perform an aerial search in the Sandy Strait, between the Fraser Coast mainland and Fraser Island, an area that lies within the Cyclone Marcia warning zone.

The men were thankfully located safe and well on an island just after 8am and were retrieved by the Water Police boat.

The fishermen did not require any medical attention.
