We perform a search for vector-like quarks more massive than the top quark coupling to lighter generations using data collected with the ATLAS detector. The W and Z bosons are reconstructed in the $W\rightarrow l^{\pm}\nu$ and $Z\rightarrow l^{+}l^{-}$ where $l=e,\mu$. The vector-like quark is reconstructed from the W or Z and the highest $p_{T}$ jet.
