Police are desperately searching for father and son bushwalkers who went missing in a Victorian track on Sunday.

The pair had called emergency services at approximately 1pm from within the Great Otway National Park and were thought to be about 30 minutes from Forrest-Apollo Bay Rd.

Halfway through the ‘vague’ 000 call their phone died and police haven’t been able to reach them since.

Sergeant Bould said there were ‘lots of scenarios’ to work through, their first step was to patrol the area for empty cars.

‘We’re concentrating initially on patrolling main roads through the bush between Forrest and Lorne, to see if we can find them or vehicles that might be unattended,’ he said.

‘That’s our first play and we’ll go from there if we find something.’

Senior Sergeant Nick Ubergang said police would be out patrolling again on Monday morning to decipher whether the pair had managed to get home safely or not.
