#AceNewsReport – Dec.04: “Police located the body, which is believed to be that Claire Hockridge during search efforts,” Northern Territory police said in an emailed statement: Hockridge has been missing since she went hiking with two friends two weeks ago.
One of them, Phu Tran, 40, was found on Tuesday by a local farmer at a cattle station near Alice Springs: He said he survived soaring temperatures by drinking water meant for livestock: Tran was found three days after his friend Tamra McBeath-Riley was found about 1.5 km (0.9 miles) from the car they had been traveling in through Australia’s remote north.
McBeath-Riley said the car became bogged down in the soft desert roads in the region: For a few days, the group stayed close to the car, surviving on the limited supplies they had packed, McBeath-Riley said.
After running out of water, Phu Tran and Hockridge went looking for help, taking only a compass and a GPS: Police had originally hoped that Hockridge would be found alive after she and Phu Tran found water, though the pair separated some time before he was found.
