Police expect to be in graveyard for a 'number of days'

This afternoon we received some relevant information which leads us to concentrate our search efforts in the Great Western Cemetery and a specific grave within the cemetery.

We’re in the process of securing this grave and would like to emphasise that the family connected with this grave have been informed.

We will be here throughout the night and for a number of days. A tent has been erected which covers more than the specific grave we are focusing on.

The families of those in the graves nearby will be contacted by us and reassured that there will be no disturbance to these graves.
