AERIAL FOOTAGE: How LifeFlight found missing man at Bullyard
RACQ LifeFlight Rescue released video footage of the moment when they found a man who went missing on Saturday morning.
The man, aged in his 80s, was seen walking from a Bullyard address at 8am.
Police initiated a ground search and were quickly joined by officers on trail bikes, State Emergency Service and Queensland Ambulance Service personnel to look through surrounding bushland.
The LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was called in to assist the search at 10.30, and searched the area from above for almost two hours without any sighting.
With concern for the man's wellbeing growing, the chopper refuelled and was redeployed to the area at 1.30pm.
It continued searching the area for over an hour before catching sight of the man near a road, three kilometres from the location he was last seen.
The man was taken to the emergency service command area and was treated by paramedics, however there were no reports of any injuries.
