A ground and air search operation has been launched for an elderly Perth woman missing on Mount Augustus, in the Gascoyne state region, after she failed to return from a walk yesterday afternoon.
Police said they were notified of the 74-year-old woman’s disappearance around 2:30 a.m. Friday after she failed to return from her 20-minute walk on Edney Trail.
Carnarvon police launched a ground search of the trail and surrounds it Friday before being suspended overnight.
An AMSA rescue aircraft was also deployed overnight to conduct a search of the area, but no trace of the woman was found.
Authorities are continuing the search with police from Carnarvon, Meekatharra and Burringurrah, as well as DFES State Emergency Service volunteers from Carnarvon and Geraldton.
The other planes will also be tasked with flying back over the area, police said in a statement.
Police have previously urged visitors to be prepared when traveling in the area after a couple was found dead on the popular hiking trail last month, just days after a woman’s body was also found in the same place.
Mt Augustus, known as Burringurrah by the locals Wajarri Aboriginal, is known as the largest monolith in Australia.
It is 465 miles from Gascoyne town of Carnarvon and a two-day drive from Perth.
The Department of Parks and Wildlife warns the risks from exposure and dehydration are significant in the area, with temperatures often exceeding 40 degrees Celsius in summer.
On its website, the department encourages tourists to walk in groups of three or more, to tell someone trusted and trustworthy about any hiking plan and says that each person should keep and drink three to four liters of water for each day of walking.
