Emergency crews are searching for four adults and two children after they failed to return from a canyoning trip in the NSW Blue Mountains.

The two men, two women and two teenage boys set out for a trip to the Wollangambe Canyon in the Blue Mountains National Park at 7.30am (AEDT) on Tuesday, police say.

A concerned relative called police when they failed to return as scheduled on Tuesday afternoon.

Police said they had searched the area in a helicopter and on foot on Wednesday, but were yet to find anything.

A spokesman said police have set up a command centre at the Mount Wilson Rural Fire Service station.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Sadly, this has ended in tragedy. One of the canyoners, 15 y.o Nicholas died in a rockfall only hours before rescuers located the group.

If anyone wishes to go bushwalking, canyoning, caving etc in the Blue Mountains, you can get a free GPS personal locator beacon from our local Parks and Wildlife Offices and police stations. If you are in distress or lost, it sends a signal out to the rescue services so they can locate you. Sadly, this group did not have one.

Were the other 5 canyoners found alive?   Huh

May the Lord comfort and strengthen Nicholas' family and friends on their loss.

Yes. They were airlifted to Katoomba Hospital and stabilized, then flown to Nepean Hospital.
