Difficult decision made in search for missing Dysart man
POLICE have confirmed that after a week of scouring waters around the Keppel Islands for missing man Gary Flower, the search has been called off.
For the last week, police have co-ordinated a multi-agency sea, land and air search of the area.
Mr Flower, a 60-year-old retired Dysart State School principal, was reported missing on January 14 after he and a 62-year-old Yeppoon man attempted to swim to their seven-metre vessel which was dragging its anchor near Conical Rocks at around 3am.
The men were separated in the water, and although the 62-year-old was found within the vessel, Mr Flower was unable to be located.
Mr Flower's family have been notified and expressed their support of the efforts of all emergency services during the week.
