She was flying a twin-engined Lockheed Electra, one of the sleekest of the new generation of airliners that normally flew medium distances between cities, but in this case was attempting a record-setting circumnavigation of the world. The last time that Amelia Earhart’s voice was heard was at 8.43 a.m. local time over a remote corner of the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937.

Separate searches are underway for two men missing in outback Queensland as temperatures soar close to 40 degrees.

Trent Grose, 25, and Matthew Ashcroft, 34, are both feared missing hundreds of kilometres apart in harsh, remote country east of Mount Isa.

Police were called at 11am on Saturday after a white four-wheel drive last seen with Mr Ashcroft was found abandoned on the Cloncurry-Duchess Road near Duchess, which is about 70 kilometres from Mount Isa.

It had run out of fuel, sparking fears the Oxenford man had walked off into harsh and remote terrain as the temperature hit 38 degrees on Saturday afternoon.

Police were looking into whether he may have arranged a lift from the site - about 100 kilometres from the nearest town and 80 kilometres from the nearest station - after a search involving police and a helicopter failed to find any trace of him.

SES volunteers were expected to join the search when it resumed on Sunday.

Police described a similarly dire situation for Mr Grose after a station owner found a 4WD he was believed to have been driving abandoned on an isolated cattle property about 75 kilometres west of  Richmond, or roughly 325 kilometres east of Mount Isa.

It had a flat battery and police feared it may have been abandoned for several days. The mercury stopped climbing just short of 42 degrees in Richmond on Saturday.

Early inquiries showed Mr Grose was last in contact with friends about two weeks ago and while he had worked on rural properties in central Queensland, had not worked on the property in question.

SES volunteers and local station personnel with equipment will join the search on Sunday after police and two helicopters failed to find the man on Saturday.

Mr Ashcroft is described as Caucasian and about 180 centimetres tall with a proportionate build, short brown hair and brown eyes.

Mr Grose is also described as Caucasian and is 195 centimetres tall, with a proportionate build, short brown hair and blue eyes.

Police said there was no indication the men knew each other.
