George Sorrensen

Maryborough Chronicle - Friday, 31st October 1958
NO TRACE OF MISSING MAN
In spite of an extensive search by Police and civilians throughout yesterday, no trace was found of the body of Mr George Sorrensen of Scarness, who disappeared after a dinghy capsized near the River Heads on Wednesday afternoon.
Mr Sorrensen had been fishing with Lars Peter Andersen who clung to the upturned boat, righted it and remained with it until he was picked up. The search for the body of the missing man will be resumed today.

VOLUNTEERS END SEARCH FOR BODY OF MISSING MAN
The search for the body of mr George Sorrensen, presumed drowned when a dinghy capsized at River Heads last Wednesday, has ended.
Despite an intensive search by police and civilians, the body has not been found.
Since Mr Sorrensen commenced business in the Ampol sevice station at Scarness a few years ago he had gained a wide circle of friends. No fishing excursion, organised by the Hervey Bay Amateur Fishing Club or by private parties, was complete without George. It was his intense love of finshing which took him to River Heads with Mr Lars Peter Andersen on Wednesday.

When Mr Andersen was rescued some hours after the capsize of the dinghy, the call for volunteers to search for Mr Sorrenson was responded to from every part of the district. Police and civilians joined the search. One of the earliest organisers was Mr George Haddow. Motor boat owners played a big part in the search. When the missing man had not been found on Wednesday night, hope of his survival was abandoned, but efforts were continued to recover the body.
Mr Jacob Lack anchored his launch at River Heads to be on call to take search parties to neighbouring islands.
Mr Sam Hecker, of Maryborough, searched from the air in his plane. Parties on foot searched mangrove swamps.
On Thursday afternoon the oars which had been lost when the dinghy capsized were found on South Island. Early on Saturday moring Mr Jack Barron found a thermos belonging to Mr Sorrenson. The tea in it was still warm. It was lying on the beach at South Island not far from where the oars had been recovered.
Searchers continued to patrol different localities over the weekend, and again on Monday Hervey Bay police were out with volunteers, but the body was not found.
Yesterday, Inspector E. Hird, who is in charge of the Maryborough Police District, joined with Sergeant L. T. Bell, officer-in-charge of the Hervey Bay police, in thanking all volunteers who had helped in search for the body of the missing man.
