A 57 year old bushwalker did not return from a morning bushwalk near Mt Dom Dom Saddle, north east of Healesville, on Sunday 23 March 2008. He was experienced and well equipped, but his intentions were not known.
BSAR members joined the large-scale search the following morning. Over the following days, two additional BSAR call outs brought more members to the search.
The large BSAR contribution to this search extended over 4 days. Search conditions were hard, especially line searching in the steep terrain and dense understory of the tall mountain ash forest.
No trace of the missing bushwalker was found.
