Missing fishermen found safe

THREE recreational fishermen missing off the coast of Queensland have been found after spending almost 15 hours lost at sea.

The men were found off the coast of Yeppoon at 10.10am.

A spokesperson for RACQ careflight rescue said the men's condition was unknown at this stage.

Aound 7.20pm last night a 20-year-old man telephoned police and told them he was on a boat that was sinking off Yeppoon in Central Queensland.

He managed to provide GPS co-ordinates before the call cut out.

Police said the GPS location indicated the vessel, a 5.6m runabout, was about eight nautical miles southeast of Flat Island, Yeppoon.

Police said two other men, aged 25 and 21, and the caller set out on a fishing trip to Flat Island yesterday.
