53-year-old man found dead under quad bike at Alpha property

A CENTRAL Queensland man has been found dead underneath his quad bike on his property.

The 53-year-old man was last seen yesterday afternoon mustering cattle on his Narounyah Rd property in Alpha, and reported missing by his next of kin last night.

Police searched the property for the man last night and could not locate him.

They resumed the search this morning and found the man deceased underneath the overturned quad bike at 6.30am.

Early indications showed the man had been dead for some time after a possible fatal crash, but police were unable to confirm this and investigations will continue.
