Search continues for missing man

A SEARCH will continue today for a man missing in central Queensland for nearly a fortnight.

Thomas Paynter, 63, of Rockhampton was last seen at a camp site near Agnes Water, south of Gladstone, on May 21.

A search was sparked when family reported him missing on Monday, with police conducting ground searches of the local area since then.

The search was stepped up yesterday with the RACQ Rescue Helicopter scouring the area from the air, however, there was still no sign of Mr Paynter.

There are concerns for his welfare as he suffers from a medical condition.
