Search for Queensland yachtsman in flood crisis

Police continue to search for a yachtsman missing in the swollen Brisbane River, as severe weather warnings span almost 1000km of NSW and Queensland coastline and the death toll from severe flooding rises to seven.

The sole sailor, aged in his 70s, fell overboard from his vessel near the mouth of Breakfast Creek around 4.45pm on Saturday.

Three water police vessels searched for him until nightfall but their efforts were suspended due to dangerous weather and debris in the river.
