The body of a 40-year-old man who was reported missing near Mundubbera on Thursday has been found in a vehicle in the Boyne River.

Police conducted a search for the man on his rural property before finding the 4WD utility submerged against a pylon of the Boondooma Road bridge over the Boyne River, near Briggs No 1 Road, about 5:30pm last night.

It appears the vehicle had been travelling south when it veered off the bridge and crashed into the river below.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.

A police spokesman said the incident is not believed to be flood-related.
