Two workers missing in Qld flood zone

Two men are still missing days after they failed to turn up at work, with one of their cars discovered fully submerged in a flooded creek west of Brisbane.

A 25-year-old man was driving a white 1997 Mitsubishi Magna sedan from Gatton to Mulgowie for work around 5am on Sunday.

It was discovered underwater in Sandy Creek off Woodlands Road at Glen Cairn, near Gatton, on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

They are also searching for a 34-year-old man who was travelling from the valley community of Gatton to Mulgowie for work at the same time.

He failed to arrive and has not made contact with colleagues since.

Police said his car has not been located.

It's not known if the men were known to each other or were travelling in convoy.

Police said the Mitsubishi Magna was extracted from Sandy Creek late on Monday. SES crews have commenced a search and rescue operation in the area.
