The trip of a lifetime! Rabbits Eat Lettuce reveller is found in the bush 15 DAYS after he vanished from the festival – before explaining why he felt he had to run away
Bradley Smith, 37, left the Rabbits Eat Lettuce festival at Elbow Valley, south of Warwick, over the Easter weekend
A man who wandered away from a Queensland dance festival more than two weeks ago has turned up across the New South Wales border in the tiny village of Legume.
A massive ground and air search was launched after Bradley Smith, 37, left the Rabbits Eat Lettuce festival at Elbow Valley, south of Warwick, over the Easter weekend.
Queensland Police said he resurfaced on Wednesday when he called the Policelink number to advise them of his location, telling them he had disappeared because he believed someone was trying to kill him.
Officers later found Mr Smith in the town of Legume, across the New South Wales border.
He was suffering from exposure as a result of spending 15 days outside, but was otherwise fine apart from a few cuts and bruises.
The reveller was reported missing on April 23 after he did not come home to Nanango in Queensland when the festival finished.
He did not contact family or friends at any point while he was missing.
The search for him, which involved police helicopters and the State Emergency Services, came at a significant cost to taxpayers.
