An air, land and water search continues on Monday morning for a man who went missing at Coolum Beach on Saturday afternoon.

A police spokesperson said the 21-year-old from Brisbane went swimming with friends at about 4pm. It’s believed he got caught in a rip and he hasn’t been seen since.

The search started on Saturday afternoon and continued on Sunday and into Monday.

“Police have been leading an air, land and water search between Maroochydore and Marcus Beach, but so far haven’t been able to locate the individual,” the spokesperson said.

Surf lifesavers and the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter are involved in the search.

Queensland Police contacted Surf Life Saving Queensland at about 4.30pm on Saturday, following reports of the man in difficulty near Stumer’s Creek, which is an unpatrolled area.

Surf lifesavers in Inflatable Rescue Boats from a nearby patrol immediately responded to the area and started a search. They were other services, including lifesavers on jet skis.

The search resumed in the early hours of Sunday morning with the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter and drones conducting a search from the sky.

Surf lifesavers on jet skis and Inflatable Rescue Boats continue to be involved in the search, along with vessels from other agencies.

The search was suspended at 5pm on Sunday and crews were due to resume looking early on Monday.
