UPDATE FROM OVERNIGHT:

A search has resumed for a couple missing in the Kosciuszko National Park.

Police believe a 62-year-old woman and a 65-year-old man, both from Sydney, left Thredbo Village about 10am Tuesday May 27 to go for a walk.

It is believed they intended to walk up Friday Flat Creek towards Brindle Bull Hill, along the Dead Horse Gap onto Alpine Way, and back into Thredbo, however, about 2.45pm the woman contacted emergency services to report they were lost.

No further contact has been able to be made with them since.

A search was initiated by police attached to Monaro Local Area Command, NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services, State Emergency Services and Fire & Rescue NSW.

Extreme weather conditions, including electrical storms and heavy rain, hampered the search and prevented helicopters from assisting. Despite this searchers continued to 2.30am before being suspended.

The search resumed at 6am with a briefing at the NP&WS office at Jinabyne. It again involves personnel from NSW Police, Fire & Rescue NSW, SES, and will be assisted by the Snowy Mountains Horse Riders group. The NSW Police airwing, POLAIR, is on standby to assist once weather conditions improve.

It’s believed the couple were not equipped to stay in the park overnight. They’re not believed to have been carrying an EPIRB.
