Missing man found in waters of Great Barrier Reef after two weeks

AN INCREDIBLE tale of survival has come out of North Queensland.

60-year-old Garry Amey, who has been missing for two weeks, has been found in water off Wangetti Beach.

He failed to return home from a walk on October 11 and as the days ticked over, his loved ones feared the worst and Police called off the search four days ago.


But on Saturday, he was spotted floating 20km from where he was last seen. Mr Amey, who has a medical condition, was rescued by paramedics who say he was unresponsive and severely dehydrated.

He is now in a stable condition in Cairns Hospital, but it’s not known how he survived the past two weeks.
