Police have found a 52-year-old man who went missing on a cattle station in outback Queensland.

A cattle station worker has been found after disappearing late Friday in outback Queensland.

Police found the man on the cattle station he worked on near Julia Creek in the state’s northwest on Saturday morning.

The 52-year-old had last been seen on Friday afternoon working with a grader on the isolated property on Old Normanton Road, about 97km north of Julia Creek – the largest nearby town.

However, police say other station staff found the grader unoccupied when they went looking for him after he failed to return.

The man was suffering from exposure and taken to Julia Creek for treatment.
