The Search Continues For Man Reported Missing From Queensland Festival Where Two People Died
The search continues for a 37-year-old man who wandered away from Queensland's Rabbits Eat Lettuce dance festival, where two people died this week.
Bradley Smith was last seen on Tuesday after he disappeared from his campsite at the Rabbits Eat Lettuce festival near Warwick.
Festival organisers say he was last seen 18km down the road from Rabbits Eat Lettuce festival on Cullendore Road and was reported missing on Tuesday night.
It's believed he may have been hitchhiking or walking along the road.
Police have scaled back their search today to local areas but have stated that they will search specific areas if they receive any further information.
Smith disappeared after leaving the festival grounds after the event itself had finished and not during the festival itself, festival organisers told 10 News First.
Police said he was reported missing after failing to return home to Nanango, more than 250 kilometres away from the festival.
Bradley is described as being about 175cm tall with a solid build, fair complexion, dark brown hair and blue eyes.
Queensland Police confirmed to 10 daily that police, SES and RACQ LifeFlight Rescues are carrying out an extensive air and land search of the surrounding Elbow Valley area.
Authorities are urging anyone who may have seen him leaving the event or may have given the man a lift to contact police. Festival organisers are also calling for anyone who may have had contact with Bradley to contact them.
Several people commented on a related Facebook post saying they had seen the missing man on Sunday and Monday, or had camped next to him.
The news comes after confirmation two festival-goers Ebony Greening, 22, and Dassarn Tarbutt, 24, were found dead at the festival on Monday.
Police do not believe their deaths were suspicious and a toxicology report is being prepared for the coroner.
The pair were found inside a tent together following the four-day long festival and there have been outpourings of grief for the two from the Rabbits Eat Lettuce community, which describes itself as a place of "Freedom, Love and Dance Music".
