Search for Missing Bushwalker Continues in New Area

The search for missing Canadian hiker Warren Meyer has continued in a new location near the Dom Dom Saddle:

Search and rescue police will be back in the Yarra Ranges National Park today looking for bushwalker Warren Meyer, who went missing in the area on Easter Sunday.

Victoria Police said today the search will entail a new area adjacent to the Dom Dom Saddle car park where the 57-year-old was last seen. [AAP]

The search for a hiker that was suspected in possible foul play against Mr. Meyer has also ended with him being cleared of any wrong doing:

Police also said a man seen hitch-hiking in the area, and who detectives wanted to speak to, had come forward and been eliminated from inquiries.

Inspector Phil Shepherd told Fairfax newspapers police have found nothing to suggest foul play behind Mr Meyer’s disappearance.

The new search I think makes sense because in the area that was searched that I personally walked through myself, I think it is unlikely if he is dead that his body is located there considering the size of the area and the number of searchers who were looking through it.  However, if Mr. Meyer decided at the last moment to hike through another area without telling his wife then that could explain why he hasn’t been found.

Hopefully the searchers that have been working really hard to locate Mr. Meyer can locate him and give some peace of mind to Mr. Meyer’s family.
