  • Robert Weber is checked over by paramedics

After days of searching their southern Queensland cattle property for missing man Robert Weber, local MP Tony Perrett and his wife Michelle found the 58-year-old this morning sitting under a tree.

Rescuers earlier suspended an air-and-ground search after failing to find a trace of him despite a week of combing "dense bushland, rivers, dams and steep terrain during wet conditions".

Local MP Tony Perrett and his wife were reported to have found Mr Weber on Sunday just 3km (1.9 miles) from where his vehicle had been discovered, after searching their cattle farm.

"He said he was trying to get to Caboolture and he got disorientated ... he became lost and didn't know where he was". He then became lost but remained near a dam where he survived by "sleeping on the ground, drinking dam water and eating mushrooms".

Police said Weber's auto became "bogged down" on a road he was unfamiliar with, and that he stayed at his vehicle with his dog for three days, before running out of water.

Authorities added that Weber was taken to hospital after suffering from exposure, but is otherwise "safe and well", though his dog has not been found.

The vehicle was found by search and rescue teams on January 17, but Mr Weber and his dog had long since moved on.

"We'd been past this dam on numerous occasions over the last week and when we saw him there it was just quite extraordinary".

The Member for Gympie called an ambulance and the Kilkivan police to report Mr Weber was OK.

"I imagined I could be there three months, six months", he said.

"It was just persistence I guess at the end of the day, and that sliver of hope that he might be alive", Mr Perrett said.
