Trent Riley Missing
The 26-year-old’s disappearance has sparked a major search operation involving Water Police, the Coast Guard, Volunteer Marine Rescue, and Mr. Riley’s friends.
Acting Inspector Mark Mooney said police had been in contact with the missing man’s mother.
“She’s aware the survivability after 24 hours is quite low, which is very heartbreaking for her and the family and friends,” he said.
“We’re still holding out hope that we’ll bring him home alive to her.”
Mr. Riley posted a video to social media two hours before his empty boat was found.
“I understand he is quite a keen fisherman. However, he doesn’t normally fish in this area,” Acting Inspector Mooney said.
“The vessel itself is quite small, and I wouldn’t say it would be an overly safe vessel to go out in Moreton Bay.”

Fifteen boats and two helicopters have been involved in the search.
Around 3.30 pm, police were called after a small aluminum boat was spotted driving uncontrolled off Mud Island near Brisbane.
There was no one on board. No damage had been found on the boat.
Police searched for Riley on Wednesday afternoon and into the night.
The search involved three helicopters and ten boats.
Water Police worked with the Volunteer Marine Rescue and the Coast Guard.
The search will resume at first light.
Trent was last seen wearing a long-sleeved grey fishing shirt, black jeans, black shoes, and a bucket hat.
He is described as Caucasian, around 183cm tall, proportionate build, with a fair complexion and brown hair.
His mates joined the search on Thursday morning.
Acting Inspector Mooney said the man had not been wearing a life jacket, and it was unclear how he had fallen from the boat.
The aluminum vessel was not damaged, but Mr. Riley’s mobile phone and a fishing rod are missing.
Police have urged anyone who saw the fisherman’s boat between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm on Wednesday to contact authorities.
