Police, CFA, SES, search dogs and bush search and rescue crews revisited parts of the rugged terrain and ventured into harder to reach areas.
The couple was expected to return from a bushwalk at Reservoir Track on Mount Buffalo about 12.30 p.m. on Friday, but did not return.
Their car was found the next day.
Victoria Police thanked search crews and the public for their assistance.
Earlier, Jacinta Bohan’s sister, Maria, said the couple had been visiting the area for eight years.

The search comes after investigators said earlier this week that the 15-year-old, only identified as Rebecca, was probably no longer alive and that her 27-year-old brother-in-law was a suspect in her disappearance.

The brother-in-law has been detained but is refusing to cooperate with investigators. Rebecca’s family said he’s innocent.
Police received more than 700 responses from the public after asking for help. In particular, they’re trying to find out why the brother-in-law drove to eastern Germany on the day Rebecca disappeared.
