Police update: Search for Krystal Cain at Booubyjan

A large-scale search operation for 14-year-old Krystal Cain caught in floodwaters at Booubyjan during the early hours of Saturday, January 8, will be scaled back.

Queensland Police have been coordinating the air, land and water search for Krystal near the Burnett Highway and Murgon Gayndah Roads.

Despite a thorough examination over the last thirteen days by Queensland Police divers, officers on foot, horseback, use of ATVs, aerial assets including drones, search crews have been unable to locate any sign of Krystal.

Human Remains Detection Dogs and specialised search officers have also joined the search this week and drones will be continued to be used within the 10km radius where she was last seen.

Krystal was a compassionate, bright and bubbly girl who loved art and English at school. She was a fantastic sketcher and had a love of music.

Police would particularly like to acknowledge the assistance provided by Queensland Fire and Emergency Services personnel, SES volunteers and Lifeflight.

Krystal’s family has been notified and remain supportive of the efforts of all emergency services, and our thoughts remain with her family and friends at this difficult time.
