A man who went missing in bushland near Casino earlier in the week has been located safe and well.

On Tuesday 22 July, a 41-year-old man was reported missing to police after becoming lost on a property at Kippenduff, about 55km south-west of Casino.

Over the following days, local police, land owners and other emergency services conducted searches for the man but were unable to locate him.

About 11:30am yesterday (Saturday), three people were riding their motorbikes on a property on Old Tenterfield Road at Wyan when they located the man safe and well.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene where the 41-year-old was examined but did not require hospital treatment.

He has since told police he sought shelter in an old caravan during the incident.
