Police to re-search Noosa National Park to find missing man

POLICE will conduct another search of Noosa National Park in a bid to find missing Federal man Timothy Cairns after souring waterways without success. 

Water police and divers have failed to find any indication of the man, who has been missing since Friday last week. 

The search enters its sixth day today. 

His car - a white Toyota Rav 4 - was found in the national park at 6.30pm Friday. 

Queensland Police Service media say the search is very thorough and ongoing. 

"Police will conduct a more extensive land search in a radius of where his car was found," a QPS spokeswoman said. 

Police hold concerns for the safety of Mr Cairns, who is 173cm tall, Caucasian, with black hair and brown eyes.

 

INITIAL: THE family of missing man Timothy Cairns are helping emergency services scour bushland in the Noosa National Park as the search enters its third day.

The Federal man has been missing since Friday after his vehicle, a white Toyota Rav4, was found parked at Noosa National Park.

The 37-year-old was last seen at 6.30am Friday at a property between Cooroy and Gympie.

He has not been in touch with family or friends since.

Police hold concerns for the safety of Mr Cairns, who is 173cm tall, Caucasian and with black hair and brown eyes.

Noosa Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Ben Carroll said the search was "massive" and involved 40 people.

Snt Sgt Carroll and his team was heading to Noosa North Shore to continue the detailed search.

Water police on jet skis will search the waterways and surrounding area.

"We are confident he isn't on the rocky outcrop and we have done all the tracks, but it is impossible to sweep it all," Snr Sgt Carroll said.

"Today we are concentrating on the waterways. Surf Lifesaving Queensland have assisted with jet skis and SES have provided volunteers.

"His family have been with us for two days, helping search for him.

"It is a difficult search and we are doing as best as we can. We are crossing things off where we can."

Snr Sgt Carroll said officers on all-terrain vehicles and PolAir had also been used.
