Swimmer's body found in far north Qld

Police divers have found the body of a 61-year-old man who went missing in a swimming hole in Queensland's far north.

The Millstream local had been swimming with two friends on Saturday afternoon at the Army Swimming Holes, near Big Millstream Falls, when he was dragged under the water by the fast-flowing current.

Police were notified when the two friends drove to Ravenshoe Police Station at around 1.45pm to raise the alarm.

Police commenced a search with Rescue 510 conducting sweeps of the area and swift water rescue and SES personnel attending. The search resumed on Sunday.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
