Six men missing after fishing trawler overturns off Queensland coast

Six men missing after fishing trawler overturns off Queensland coast”

The other six men who remain missing are believed to have been below deck when the fishing trawler got into trouble, but police said they still held out hope for finding them alive despite the rough conditions.

Police say the boat overturned near Middle Island off the town of 1770 about 7.30pm on Monday and sank about midnight.

The vessel capsized at about 7.30 pm last night, and it sunk around midnight, according to authorities.

The male crew member was rescued by a passing boat at 7am on Tuesday.

Bad weather is hampering the air and water search for the other six men, with the area receiving nearly 140mm of rain in the past 24 hours and being subject to a severe weather warning.

Police are appealing for boat users in the area to keep an eye out for the missing crew members, and to report any information to police.
