Police launch desperate search for QLD fishermen after discovering abandoned boat

Queensland Police have mounted a search for two missing fishermen after their partially submerged boat was discovered north of Brisbane.

25-year-old Carwyn Massey and 32-year-old Timothy Maher set off for a one-day fishing trip on Saturday from the Whyte Island boat ramp.

But they were reported missing after failing to return on Saturday night, sparking an air, sea and land search in Moreton Bay.

Police discovered a partially submerged tinnier on Sunday at 5pm near Green Island, about 7km from where the friends set off.

Life jackets, fishing lines and rods have been found on the island, but the men still haven’t been located.
