Two of Ms Hockridge's companions were found alive earlier this week after extensive search efforts.
The trio became stranded after taking a wrong turn in the outback and managing to get their vehicle stuck in a riverbed.
They stayed there for several days, digging into sand below the vehicle to shelter from the sun and surviving on minimal rations.
Tamra McBeath and Phu Tran were both found dehydrated in the scorching temperatures as they attempted to find help.

Despite it being six times the size of the United Kingdom, only 211,000 people are thought to live in the Northern Territory of Australia, making it the country's most sparsely population region.
