RACQ CareFlight Trawler Crew Search Continues

Bundaberg's RACQ CareFlight Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Queensland Water Police to assist in the search for missing trawler crewmen off the Fraser Coast at 6:53 AM.

The rescue helicopter conducted search and rescue operations throughout the day and was later joined by Sunshine Coast's RACQ CareFlight Rescue Helicopter at 2:21 PM.

The search for the two Bundaberg men, aged 60 and 36, who were on board the vessel were unable to be located by the two rescue helicopters. 

Both Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg RACQ CareFlight Rescue will be ready to resume fresh search efforts for the men in the morning.
