The search involved officers from Lachlan Local Area Command, assisted by NSW Police Rescue, Water Police and volunteers.

NSW Police released a statement on behalf of the family on Wednesday.

“Rob is a respected member of the Burcher community. He was actively involved in many organisations and is president of the local Golf and Cricket Clubs and also Captain of the Burcher Branch of the Rural Fire Brigade,” the statement said.

“He is a dedicated family man with his partner, his three daughters, their respective partners, grandchildren and extended family.

“At this difficult time Rob’s family requests that you respect their privacy.”
