Search for Qld fishermen continues

Water Police have asked boaties in Brisbane's Moreton Bay to keep an eye out for items that may help them find two fishermen missing since Saturday.

Emergency crews have found various items belonging to Timothy Maher, 32, and his 25-year-old friend Carwyn Massey, including their partially-submerged dinghy, life jackets and fishing rods, but hopes of finding the pair alive are fading.

Emergency crews are expecting an increase in boating activity in the bay on Wednesday's Royal Queensland Show public holiday, and have asked boaties to give search vessels a wide berth and to immediately report any items of interest.
