A search is underway for a Victorian man who went missing while four-wheel driving in far north Queensland on Monday.
Police say Bruce Atkinson was due to arrive at a campsite near the Wenlock River on Cape York on Monday night but didn't show up.
The 63-year-old, who is an experienced driver, was travelling in a convoy with another Victorian man. However, the pair separated around midday on Frenchman's Track, between Portland Rd and Pascoe River, when they encountered difficult conditions.
Failed to turn up at the campsite
Mr Atkinson decided to turn back instead of attempting to cross the Pascoe River, planning on meeting the other driver at the campsite but he never arrived.
When Mr Atkinson failed to show up at the campsite, his friend reported him missing to police.
Mr Atkinson was driving a white 2016 Toyota Prado with Victorian registration 1PT40F.
He's described as caucasian, about 160cm tall with a solid build and short, grey thinning hair.
Police have asked for anyone who has seen Mr Atkinson or his white 4WD to contact them.
