SES crews scale back search for missing bushwalker

THE search for a young bushwalker, missing in NSW national park for two weeks, has been scaled back.

Canadian visitor Prabhdeep Srawn, 25, was last seen at Charlotte Pass in the Kosciusko National Park on Monday, May 13.

He was discovered missing on May 20 when he failed to return his rental car.

For the past eight days, emergency services have been combing tough terrain in the search for Mr Srawn but by last night he had not been found.

Superintendent Shane Box said he and other senior police had been in constant contact with Mr Srawn's family and the decision to scale back the search was not made lightly.

He said understood it was an emotional time for Mr Srawn's family but warned against loved ones conducting their own searches as weather conditions were expected to deteriorate rapidly in the coming days and only expertly trained officers with survival equipment were being sent in.
