The search for 60-year-old Gary Flower, who went missing in the Keppel Islands, has been called off.

Police have coordinated a multi-agency sea, land and air search of the area for more than seven days.

Gary was reported missing on January 14 after he and a 62-year-old Yeppoon man attempted to swim to their seven-metre vessel which was dragging its anchor near Conical Rocks at around 3am.

Gary’s family have been notified and remain supportive of the efforts of all emergency services during the last week.
