Soldiers, SES crews and members of the Queensland Police Service are today scouring through Brisbane's D'Aguilar National Park in desperate attempts to locate Judge Andrew.

The search party is going door-to-door to properties that back onto the 40km national park, which encompasses the Mt Coot-tha and Enoggera Reservoir areas.

Police divers were earlier this week wading through the large Enoggera Reservoir, while family, friends and volunteers assisted SES crews and the QPS on land.
