Desperate search for man continues off the coast of Queensland



A desperate search is underway for a man who has been missing for almost a day off the coast of Queensland.

A radio distress call was made from the yacht last night off Sandy Cape at the northern tip of K'gari (Fraser Island) after the boat started to take on water.

This triggered a major search effort between police, volunteer marine rescue crews and several helicopters.
