The 28-year-old kayaker, who had epilepsy, was last seen entering the creek at 7am yesterday morning.

He and his family were on holidays at the campsite next to the creek.

His mother told The Today Show that Mr Dicker had taken his kayak for a final time before he planned to go home.

Mr Dicker's kayak was later found on the western side of Tallebudgera Creek bridge with a pair of scuffs in it, but no paddle.

Police Regional Duty Officer Dave Cousins said a deceased male was found about 6.30am in the middle of the creek, but they are yet to confirm his identification.

Police were unsure if the kayak was washed up, or if it has been dragged to its current position.

Family were concerned about the man's disappearance as he has a medical condition and is intellectually impaired.
