Senior Sergeant Nick Ziersch, officer in charge of Lowood Police, said there was a report on Saturday of three men, who had gone out in a small boat, missing in the Prenzlau area.

"A tinnie with three occupants went to check on a neighbour in swiftly flowing flood waters in the Prenzlau area," Sgt Ziersch said.

"A short time later, the alarm was raised when the tinnie could not be accounted for.  

"A Search and Rescue operation was quickly  commenced, utilising a range of emergency services, with an Australian Defence Force helicopter locating the three survivors and winching them to safety some hours later."
