WICEN has been involved in the detailed planning of this year's search for VH-MDX in the Barrington Tops. WICEN have taken members of NSW Police Rescue and Australian Defence Force on a reconnaissance on the Northern part of the likely search area in the last few weeks. This year's search looks like being in a different valley than has been searched in recent years and using different radio points inside the National Park.

Follows is a public note of thanks from the NSW Police:

A note of thanks on behalf of the Blue Mountains Police Rescue Squad in respect of our search for Garry Tweddle.

Initially I would like to join in the acknowledgement of the volunteers who have been involved in the search operation and, as a community , we should all recognize how lucky we are to have them, and continue to support them in any way we can. these include the Rural Fire Service, State Emergency Service, Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Squad, Caves Rescue and W.I.C.E.N.
