Police Solve Mystery Of Empty Canoe Off Moreton Bay

After a massive sea and air search to find the owner of a rogue canoe found drifting in waters off Moreton Bay, police have solved the mystery.

The owner was located on Macleay Island on Tuesday morning, he's told police he loaded the bright yellow canoe ready for a fish on Sunday and left it on the beach while he dropped his wife at work.

When he returned to find it was missing he thought the canoe had been stolen, but he didn't report it to police. 

Around a dozen boats and three helicopters have spent the past 24 hours searching waters around Peel Island, thinking someone may have fallen overboard.
