Search for man missing in floodwaters

EMERGENCY Services are trying to locate a man believed to be missing after venturing off in floodwaters near Tully.

At about 4.50pm police received reports of a male going into Davidson Creek just off Davidson Rd, Euramo in an orange canoe.

It's understood he hasn't seen since and his parked car remains in the same location.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said emergency services were having trouble getting to the location as the man had driven through floodwaters to get to where his vehicle is currently parked.

A rescue helicopter is being sent to the area.
