LATEST: A SEARCH of bushland that lasted more than a day ended when police found a missing Rosewood man at his local supermarket yesterday.

Police held grave fears for the safety of a 34-year-old man as a helicopter, several trailbikes and SES troop carriers began to scour an area of Mt Walker on Thursday afternoon.

The search ran into the evening, with police using mobile phone triangulation in an attempt to track the man's location.

SES volunteers and police picked up where they left off from about 6am yesterday, setting up a base at the Rosewood SES headquarters before heading back out towards an area near Grandchester.

Police also released a photograph of the missing man and his vehicle - a green Toyota Corolla - in an effort to locate him yesterday.

Some of the searchers were still out in bushland when police found the man's vehicle in the car park of the Rosewood IGA supermarket about 10am yesterday.

A uniformed police officer and plainclothes detective entered the supermarket and emerged with the man a few minutes later.

Police said the man was safe and well, but would still be taken to hospital for a health assessment.
