    Dianne

    Police have found the fishing boat "Dianne" that overturned in Bustard Bay off the central Queensland coast on Monday night, and they will start recovery operations this morning.

    The family and friends of the six missing men of the "Dianne" remain in our thoughts and prayers.

    Despite rough seas, State Disaster Coordintator Peter Martin told me on Thursday "we will find the Dianne".

    I want to pay tribute to all officers involved the search, and to those who will now work in the recovery.
