RACQ LifeFlight Rescue chopper joins search for missing man

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has been called in to help search for a man missing, near Proston, in the South Burnett.

It’s believed he was last seen yesterday morning, leaving a home to go for a bush walk.

Queensland Police Service (QPS) officers launched a ground search in bushland, then called in the rescue helicopter to search from above, just before 2:30pm, this afternoon.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew scoured areas surrounding Boondooma Dam for around an hour, but couldn’t find any trace of the missing man.

State Emergency Service (SES) personnel have also been involved in the search operation.
