A search continues for a pilot and passenger who were on a light plane that vanished off southeast Queensland.
Debris has been found floating in the water southeast of Cape Moreton, but it has not been confirmed as being from the aircraft.
The plane was travelling from Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast to a resort on Moreton Island, off Brisbane, when it went missing at 4.30pm yesterday.
The pilot made a mayday call sparking a major search involving water police, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, helicopters and local fishing trawlers.
Multiple helicopters and boats searched the area to the north of the island overnight.
However the search was called off at midnight due to rough weather conditions.
The search of the 500sq km area resumed at first light today.
Queensland Water Police, AMSA’s Challenger jet, Redcliffe Coast Guard, Bribie Island Volunteer Marine Rescue, six helicopters and a Queensland Fisheries Patrol Vessel are all involved in the search.
