Two campers missing in Victorian bushland
An alarm has been raised for two campers missing in Victorian bushland, with emergency services racing to find the pair in cold and wet conditions.
Caleb Forbes, 22, failed to show up for work on Sunday after embarking on a camping trip with 21-year-old woman Shannon Lowden two days earlier.
The pair, from Melbourne's northeastern suburbs, had planned to camp near the Thomson Dam and it was unclear when they were expected to return.
Images of Mr Forbes and Ms Lowden, along with the green 1994 Nissan Patrol wagon they were travelling in, have been released amid an air and land search.
Dozens of police, SES members and locals will continue scouring bushland around the Rawson, Aberfeldy and Thomson Dam areas until dark, with the search set to resume at first light on Wednesday.
The area around Thomson Dam has received between 50mm and 100mm rainfall over the past couple of days and temperatures have struggled to reach double digits.
