The moderators of the page, that was built on a constant stream of photo and video posts of people getting bogged on the Cooloola Coast, Fraser Island and beyond, have reached out to the public to assure them they will return.

Moderators of the Clayton's Towing Facebook page, that has a huge 63 000 following itself, were asked to update the public who have been left wondering where their favourite mis-adventure page went.

"The moderators who started and run the page have asked us to pass on a update,” Clayton's Towing wrote in a post last night.

"They had lost control of the page due to it being hacked, and have been in a big battle to get it back.”

Clayton's said the "I got bogged” team had been working with Facebook to partly restore the page, which is currently only visible overseas, with the hope of it returning soon.

"The page is still currently in full swing, and they are posting everyday, so there will be lots to see when it comes back online.”

The post warned people not to send their video to the copycat page that had been started overseas, but to save them until the authentic site was functioning in Australia again.

"I'm sure everyone misses the action and laughs it often gave, they will be back soon,” Clayton's wrote.
