Contrary to Australian media reports, the search for a Hamilton man who has been missing in the Australian mountains since May has not been called off by his family.
A post that appeared on the Facebook page Help Find Prabh Srawn early Sunday morning says, "There have been no decisions made by the family to call off the search. ABC needs to check its source before writing articles."
Prabhdeep Srawn, 25, a trained Canadian Forces reservist, was last seen May 13 before he went for a hike in Kosciuszko National Park.
Australia's ABC News reported Saturday that the snowy season had begun in the area and the family and volunteers were stopping their search.
