THE English backpacker missing in Queensland's outback has been found alive, sunburnt but hydrated.

Sam Woodhead, 18, had been missing since Tuesday afternoon from a remote station 130 kilometres from Longreach.

Police have confirmed Mr Woodhead has been found alive and was hydrated but sunburnt.

Conditions where he was missing were so harsh two SES volunteers were taken to Longreach Hospital during the search suffering heat stroke.

Mr Woodhead is in the process of being taken back to the homestead on the remote property where he went missing and will then be taken to Longreach Hospital.
