Missing vessel located off Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter successfully conducted a search and rescue mission for a missing vessel near Mudjimba Island, approximately one nautical mile off the Sunshine Coast.

A beacon was activated earlier this morning from a four-metre recreational vessel, which had two people on board after it started to take on water.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the search and rescue mission at approximately 7.09am and the crew located the missing vessel shortly after.

The vessel was guided back to land with air support from the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter and docked at Mooloolaba boat ramp.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew confirmed to the Queensland Police Service and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority that all missing vessels and persons were found .
