Cadaver dog being utilised in search for missing Belgian bushwalker
Tasmania Police will today be utilising the NSW Police cadaver dog to search areas of Philosopher Falls at Waratah, for missing 31-year-old Belgian woman, Celine Cremer.
Inspector Anthea Maingay said Celine was reported missing on 26 June.
“Her vehicle, a white Honda, was located in the car park of the Philosopher Falls Track on 27 June, and information indicates it was there on 20 June, and may have been there as early as 17 June,” she said.
“Considerable search efforts were undertaken in difficult terrain and treacherous weather conditions before the search was formally suspended on 10 July.”
“The search involved a broad range of police and SES resources, including ground crews, police drones and helicopters, specialist search and rescue rappelling, and ATVs.”
“Last week police received further information in relation to Celine’s mobile phone activity, and analysis has provided an additional area of interest within the Philosopher’s Falls Area.”
“This week police Search and Rescue and Tasmania SES personnel conducted ground searches in the revised area of interest, however no signs of Celine were located.”
“The cadaver dog is being used to further search that area today, and this will continue tomorrow.”
“Our thoughts remain with Celine’s family.”
Media please note: An interview opportunity will be available with Inspector Maingay at 11am today, at Devonport Police Station. Please email [email protected] to advise if attending.
