RACQ helicopter searches for missing man

The RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service has spent the day assisting the Queensland Police Service to search for an elderly man reported missing near Agnes Waters.

The 63 year old man was allegedly last seen at a campsite in the area more than a week ago.

The Rockhampton based rescue crew conducted its search more than 500kms between the Town of 1770 and Bundaberg but were unable to locate the man or the vehicle he was thought to be travelling in.

The RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue crew were forced to return to Bundaberg to refuel late Thursday afternoon before returning to base.

It was unclear whether the search would continue tomorrow.
