A search will resume today for a missing bushwalker who went missing in Sydney’s south yesterday.

Just before 5pm (Wednesday 12 April 2017), officers from Sutherland Local Area Command were called to the Royal National Park, following reports a bushwalker was missing.

Initial inquiries have led police to believe the 19-year-old woman became separated from her partner during a bushwalk and failed to return at a nominated meeting point.

A search commenced involving PolAir and local police; however, the woman could not be located. The search was suspended just before midnight, due to poor conditions.

The search will resume at daylight this morning (Thursday 13 April 2017), and will continue throughout the day including local police, State Emergency Service, Volunteer Rescue Association, Dog Unit and PolAir.
