Police have confirmed that a body found on a creek bank yesterday is that of missing Brookfield mother Allison Baden-Clay.
As police continued to scour bushland today searchers reportedly discovered a mobile sim card near where the body was found.
Benjamin Crock reports.
A comprehensive search of the area surrounding the Kholo Creek Bridge continued today with police and SES workers combing the area for clues north of Karana Downs.
Police deployed canoes among other search tools in the creek and surrounding bushland on the edge of the state forest.
Local business owners and residents say the community is shocked by the recent events.
Vox 1: “Quite a close-knit community up here, as you see we are in the bush here and yeah everyone is fairly shocked.”
Vox 2: “Having sort of this kind of thing happen so close to home is definitely a shock to the system for this sort of area.”
Early in the investigation police released these images of two cars belonging to the Baden-Clay family.
Police are still seeking assistance from anyone who may have seen either of the Baden-Clay’s family cars. Especially residents near the Kholo Creek Bridge.
The investigation which is now being treated as a homicide is in its twelfth day.
Jack Dempsey, Police Minister: “I have recieved information in relation to that search and obviously that’s ongoing. I will not be getting into the details of that however at this moment I would like to thank the many volunteers.”
The Brookfield community continued to show their support outside the family home.
