A SEARCH and rescue operation will resume tomorrow morning for a 49-year-old man from Melbourne's west who failed to return from a week-long camping trip. David McCormack, of Sunbury, was due back last night from a camping trip to the Wyperfeld and Little Desert national parks near Dimboola, about 330km west of Melbourne.

He was last seen early Tuesday morning by a ranger when he checked in to inquire about camping sites, police said. Mr McCormack was prepared to camp for the week but it was out of character of him not to arrive back home on time or contact his family, police said.

Search and rescue teams, the air wing and local units from Nhill, Dimboola, Rainbow and Hopetoun today searched the area but were unable to find him. A Victoria Police spokeswoman said the searchers had a massive area to cover, with the two parks among Victoria's biggest.

Mr McCormack was driving a white four-wheel drive 1993 Ford Maverick, with registration plates NWJ377. He is unshaven, with grey collar length wavy hair, grey eyes, a fair complexion and solid build.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact police.

I just thought that if anyone is around that area, they could keep a look out for him.

Cheers Justin

Hi Justin
Lets all hope that they find him safe and well and spare a thought for what his family would be going through now.

I wonder if our people would contact the Yanks and ask if their optical satellites can see him? Should be a piece of cake in that country.

Does anybody know which track he was on - if on one.

I think I've driven them all and am surprized that he could be in one place for a week unseen - perhaps he just got stranded on the last day or two !
