·1-min read

Two canyoners remain missing after being sucked into a whirlpool in regional NSW, with the search suspended due to bad weather.

NSW police say the women, believed to be 24 and 39 years of age, have not been seen since disappearing beneath the water's surface on Saturday in Wollangambe Canyon at Mount Wilson, north of the Blue Mountains.

Police were called to the scene at about 2.30pm, where officers and ambulance personnel helped the eight other members of the group, who were not injured.

Police divers will join the search when it resumes at first light on Sunday after it was suspended at about 6pm on Saturday due to poor weather conditions.
