Within minutes of Wags returning to the car, police seized the official dig site where they’d spent the past eight days and headed for the newly cleared bush.

Evidence markers ‘H’, ‘I’ and ‘J’ were placed in area 1 of the three-pronged search, marking the eighth, ninth and tenth items taken for further forensic examination.
