Tracey Ferrier

Authorities are preparing to resume the search for a crew member who vanished from a charter boat off the central Queensland coast.

The 35-year-old Sunshine Coast man was reported missing early on Sunday morning about 200km north east from Yeppoon, north of Gladstone.

He'd been aboard the 24-metre fishing charter vessel MV Night Crossing when he was last seen at 2am on Sunday.

A fellow crew member raised the alarm two hours later when they could not find him.

Aircraft and boats spent Sunday searching for the man.

Authorities are assessing weather conditions and will resume the search as soon as possible on Monday.
