Police Search for Two Missing in Floodwaters as Rain Brings Renewed Warnings to New South Wales

Police continued searching for two men missing in regional New South Wales, after heavy rain brought renewed flooding to central and southern parts of the state.

New South Wales Police said they were called to the rural town of Bevendale, following reports a vehicle had been swept into floodwaters after the driver attempted to cross a flooded causeway.

“Two men managed to free themselves from the cabin of the vehicle, however, another two men who are believed to have been travelling in the tray, have not been located,” they said.
