Search for missing kayaker off Fraser Island has resumed
SUNDAY: THE search for a missing kayaker has resumed as of first light this morning.
SATURDAY: A SEARCH for a missing kayaker on the eastern side of Fraser Island has so far failed to find the person.
Both the Bundaberg and Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight rescue helicopter were tasked by the Queensland Water Police to an area between Happy Valley and Cathedrals Beach at about 4.30pm Saturday.
It's believe two friends had been kayaking off shore about 80m when both fell off and into the water.
One person swam a shore, and kept a visual of his friend who was still in the water.
After about 15 minutes he lost sight of his friend and raised the alarm.
The search continued for over two hours with no sign of the missing kayaker.
