Search and rescue: Missing man, Everton Park

Police have commenced a search and rescue operation to help locate a 59-year-old man reported missing from Everton Park since Sunday (March 14).

The man was last seen leaving a Stellmach Street residence around 8am last Sunday in a 2011 Toyota Landcruiser, which has since been located (yesterday) west of Kilkivan (near Gympie).

A land and air search of nearby bushland is currently underway.

Police and family hold concern for the man’s welfare as this behaviour is out of character and he has not been heard from since.
