Search for missing motorists, Camooweal area

Police have commenced a search for motorists reported overdue late last night after travelling in the Camooweal area.

On March 11 a white Holden Colorado with seven people left Mount Isa intending to travel along the Old May Downs Road through Camooweal to Lake Nash in the Northern Territory.

The group consists of five adults aged 27 to 33, including a pregnant woman, and two children, under the age of six.

The alarm was raised when the vehicle failed to arrive at Lake Nash.

Two vehicles left Lake Nash today, each containing three to five people, searching for the missing vehicle but they have also not returned.

It is believed they may have all become stranded around 100km South of Camooweal due to heavy rain in the area.

A search involving helicopters and fixed wing aircraft commenced today with the area inaccessible by road.
