A SEARCH is underway for a man who is suffering a back injury who has gone missing on a property near Casino.
Lismore police Inspector Mick Dempsey said police were called to a large property at Kippenduff south-west of Casino at about 2.30pm after reports a man was missing.
Insp Dempsey said the 36-year-old man was walking through bushland with another person when he complained of a sore back.
The other person went to get help, Insp Dempsey said and when they returned it appeared the injured man couldn't be located.
The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter has been tasked to the scene to assist in the search of the thick bushland.
A police vehicle has located the injured man's vehicle on the property.
