Sergeant Brad Doyle, from Killarney police, said there were 50 volunteers involved in the search as well as police.

"We are searching in the Cullendore Rd area which includes the property where we believe the missing man last attended,” he said.

SES crews from Marburg, Ipswich, Cecil Plains, Crows Nest and Warwick left the control point on Monday at 8.30am to continue the search.

Rural Fire Brigade crews from the Southern Downs are also part of the search.

Preliminary investigations indicate he may have left the festival and been travelling on foot.

Although the search and rescue operation has been scaled down, police are continuing to appeal for information to help find Bradley.

He is described as about 175cm tall with a solid build, fair complexion, blue eyes, a beard and long, dark-brown hair that is usually tied in a pony tail.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have interacted with Mr Smith at the music festival, or who may have taken pictures of him to contact them.

Call Policelink on 13 14 44 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
