Police update 4: Missing person in Alice Springs

A land search in an area of Palmer Valley Station will be the focus of Northern Territory Police Search and Rescue officers as they continue to look for the remaining missing person, Claire Hockridge.

Police search efforts located footprints in the area late yesterday, which are yet to confirm as belonging to Claire.

A focused search of the Palmer Valley Station area continues today with members scouring the area on foot and motorbikes.

“We have a team of experienced officers who will be searching on foot, and on motorbikes in some areas, but working carefully to ensure any signs or tracks left by Claire are not disturbed,” said Superintendent Pauline Vicary

Ms Hockridge was last seen at the Palmer Valley Station fence line two days earlier by her friend, Phu Tran who was located by a pastoralist conducting bore runs in the area, yesterday morning.

Ms Hockridge has now been missing in remote Central Australia for more than two weeks, and it is believed she would have limited to no water supplies by now.
