A crew member has gone missing from a charter boat off the central Queensland coast.

Police have revealed the missing man is a 35-year-old from the Sunshine Coast.

He was reported missing early on Sunday morning about 200km north east from Yeppoon, north of Gladstone.

The man was last seen on board the 24 metre charter vessel MV Night Crossing at 2am.

A crew member raised the alarm at 4am after they couldn't find the man.

Police have asked boat users to look out for the man near Swain Reefs.

Two fixed-wing aircraft are searching the area and water police have joined the search.

The MV Night Crossing operates out of Gladstone and is used to run fishing adventures.
