Police locate sunken fishing trawler

Police locate sunken fishing trawler”

The fishermen's trawler, the "Diane", was discovered on Friday after an extensive search when sonar detected it two to three nautical miles off Round Hill Headland.

A police spokeswoman confirmed the trawler was discovered late this afternoon off the Seventeen Seventy coast.

Water police will remain at the scene overnight and a full recovery operation will get under way on Saturday morning.

From left, skipper Ben Leahy, Adam Hoffman, Eli Tonks and Adam Bidner are missing after a trawler accident off the Queensland coast near 1770.

Just one of the crew, Ruben McDornan, was rescued from the commercial fishing boat which capsized on Monday.

Police divers have been attempting to reach the vessel this morning to hopefully recover the bodies of the men still missing.

One man, Ruben McDornan, 32, survived while Adam Bidner, 33, Chris Sammut, 34, Eli Tonks, 39, Zach Feeney, 28, Adam Hoffman, 30, and skipper Ben Leahy, 45, are still missing, feared dead.

The search is still being considered a rescue effort, but as it enters a third day, it may shift towards recovery.

Police issued a statement on Thursday after speaking to the families.

"We have not given up hope and will not give up until they are found", it said.

Twelve boats, two helicopters and two planes will continue to comb the ocean while vehicles patrol the shore.

Exhausted, injured and wearing only a pair of boardshorts, McDornan spent hours treading water after the vessel sank to the sea floor.

Mr McDornan, the sole survivor of the accident, was "very, very lucky" to be found, according to his rescuer.

Four sailors have revealed how they came to the rescue of McDornan.

He stated he did not see any of the crew emerge as he clung to the hull of the upturned vessel and that he had heard screams from inside.

His wife Sammy McDornan said her husband is shaken, but "okay" after his harrowing ordeal.
