Queensland has recorded its first flood death, with the body of a man found in his submerged ute in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Swift water rescue crews found David Hornman's ute in the flooded Canungra Creek on Wednesday. When they secured the vehicle they found his body inside.

The 38-year-old father was last seen on Monday morning.

His desperate wife has been active on social media since then, appealing for help from anyone who saw him.

"He didn't turn up to work and hasn't been able to be reached since. His phone is turned off," Angela Hornman posted on Facebook on Tuesday.

"I just have to know he's ok. Please tell him no matter what I LOVE HIM."
