April police 'overwhelmed' by community support

Following the change in dynamics of the search operation I have been overwhelmed by the continued support of the community today.

Just one example of this was when some of those community members who have been involved in the search this week returned here this morning to deliver food and drink to the trained search teams carrying out their work in challenging conditions.

There have been so many example of kindness shown, not just by this community but by people from across the country.
