Missing bushwalkers located - Blue Mountains

Thursday, 13 July 2017 08:18:34 AM

Two bushwalkers missing in the Blue Mountains since yesterday have been located.

The 65-year-old man and 63-year-old woman walked into the backyard of a home at Cowdery Street, Glenbrook, about 7.45am today (Thursday 13 July 2017) and sought assistance.

They appear in good health.

The couple had left their Inner West home yesterday morning and travelled to the Blue Mountains by train. When they did not return home they were reported missing by concerned relatives.

Police from Blue Mountains Local Area Command co-ordinated a search of the area throughout the night but could not locate them. That search was set to resume at 8am.

The couple have told police they spent the night in the bush, sleeping in a cave before walking into the backyard at Glenbrook, some 5km from Blaxland Railway Station which is where they had started their walk.

Police would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance.
