Missing fisherman found safe and well

A MISSING fisherman has been located safe after spending several hours adrift near Dingo Reef, north east of Bowen.

The RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter found the man in his dory about 9pm yesterday.

The alarm was raised after the man did not return to the main fishing boat, "Gracie-R", before sunset.

Townsville Volunteer Marine Rescue aided in bringing the fisherman to shore.
