Earlier: Police are still searching for a man and woman who stole a vehicle after allegedly shooting an 82-year-old Lowmead resident in the leg on Monday night.

The stolen vehicle that was stolen has been found in Gympie. The white 1999 Nissan Patrol was found on East Deep Creek Rd, minus the number plates, late Tuesday afternoon.

Gladstone Detective Senior Sergeant Luke Peachey said police had some key suspects but they still needed to be directly tied to the offences.

The man is described as being of Aboriginal appearance, aged 20 to 30 years, of skinny build with scruffy, shoulder-length hair.

The woman is described as being of Aboriginal appearance, aged 16 to 20 years, of slim build with curly black hair.
