EARLIER: Bundaberg Police are still searching for 35-year-old Bundaberg man Luke Turnbull in relation to a stabbing death on Friday night.

Police were called to a Cummins Rd Avoca address about 7.40pm Friday.

On arrival they found a man, Landon Delinecort, had been taken to the Bundaberg Hospital with stab wounds to the torso.

The 24-year-old later died from the injuries.

A second man, the father of the deceased Calvin Delinecort, was also taken to the hospital with head injuries.

Police then started looking for a third person, Luke Turnbull, who was allegedly involved in the incident.

Police describe Mr Turnbull as about 180cm tall, with a solid build, tan complexion, brown hair and eyes.

He may be accompanied by a female.

The woman is 32 years old, about 170cm tall with a dark complexion and slight build.

Wide Bay District Crime Services detective inspector David Briese urged Mr Turnbull to come forward.

"We are asking if he sees this media briefing to please present himself to the Bundaberg Police Station," Detective Inspector Briese said.

Five police forensic vans were on the scene of the stabbing Saturday morning and scientific officers combed over the evidence left on the bitumen outside the Cummins Rd home.

The officers dressed in "moon suits" pulled down a tent, erected to protect the evidence from the elements on Friday night.

Underneath the tent were large moist patches and three unknown objects.

Detective inspector Briese said police officers had conducted doorknocks of the area to talk to witnesses.

"We appeal to anyone who knows anything about what occurred or the whereabouts of the 35-year-old male or the 32-year-old female, that we are seeking to speak to, contact the Bundaberg police or Crime Stoppers," he said.

Police said they had no evidence to suggest the incident was bikie or drug related at this time.

Police want to talk to Mr Turnbull about a fatal stabbing incident on Cummins Rd Friday night.
