Doubts Over Search For Qld Crew Member Lost Overboard
Authorities will decide early on Tuesday whether to resume the search for a Sunshine Coast man presumed to have fallen from a charter vessel off the Queensland coast.
Jeffrey Costar, 35, reported missing from 24-metre charter fishing vessel MV Night Crossing early on Sunday morning about 200km north east from Yeppoon, north of Gladstone.
He was last seen at 2am on Sunday, with a fellow crew member raising the alarm two hours later.
Aircraft and boats spent Sunday and Monday searching for the man but are yet to uncover any trace of him.
The charter boat operates out of Gladstone and had more than a dozen other passengers on board when the man disappeared.
