Dive squad search for missing festival-goer at Rocking the Daisies dam

UPDATE: Rocking the Daisies drown victim was festival employee

The search continues for a festival-goer who reportedly went missing near a dam at the Rocking the Daisies outdoor event.

It's alleged that two brothers were laying on an inflatable device in the dam near the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling.

EWN's Nicola Joe Bruns reports that one of the brothers disappeared two hours ago and dive squads have arrived on the scene to begin the search.

It is not yet confirmed whether or not they suspect the person has drowned.

Authorities are taking statements from life guards, and the festival management has not allowed media into the area.
