The Police National Dive Squad has joined the search for a West Coast man missing near the Grey River since the weekend.

Andrew David Lorimer, 21, of Taylorville, was one of two occupants of a vehicle that crashed on Sunday afternoon, but police say he ran away before they arrived.

Mr Lorimer's girlfriend received a cellphone call from him saying he was in the river, but an extensive search and rescue effort has so far failed to find him.
