Missing person list may provide
clue to muster body
Police in Central Australia believe
human remains discovered in dense scrubland on a property about 40 kilometres
south of Tennant Creek may have been there for seven years.
A helicopter pilot spotted a vehicle
in the scrubland yesterday during a cattle muster and a closer inspection
revealed the remains in the vehicle.
Police say the vehicle was not visible
from the ground.
Senior Sergeant Chris Evans says
they may have identified the body through their missing person list.
"It was a vehicle that was also on
our missing list and we believe that is from seven years ago so we have
indicators of who the person possibly is," he said.
"At this stage we can not confirm
anything because there is not enough to go on."
Police should check the NT Missing Persons List.
This is who
we think it is.
Solid Height: 175 cm Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
was last seen in Tennant Creek when he was driving a white ford F100
Territory Registration 386-162 with his dog in the vehicle. The dog was
number and dental records would confirm if it was him or not.
