Bundaberg man among the missing in the Philippines

A QUEENSLAND man holds grave fears for three relatives who are missing in the Philippines in the wake of the deadly Typhoon Haiyan.

At least 10,000 people are feared dead in the province of Leyte after the ferocious storm ripped across the region, and hundreds of thousands more have been left without food or shelter.

In the provincial capital Tacloban, many homes and buildings have been flattened and witnesses have described bodies piled in the streets.

Tim Pollock is one of many people desperate for information about loved ones who have not been heard from since the storm - one of the most powerful on record to make landfall.

His relatives Errol Mitchell, 66, Margie Mitchell, 37, and Chris Hesselberg from Bundaberg, 44, were in the small town of Alang Alang, 18 kilometres west of Tacloban, when it hit on Friday.
