Northern Territory police believe a man who went missing in Central Australia since Thursday planned to go camping in a national park west of Alice Springs.
The main point:
- Mr Shin was last seen Thursday at a roadhouse south of Alice Springs
- He told his comrades that he planned to camp in Palm Valley or the Boggy Hole
- The police are concerned about his well-being due to the high temperatures
The air and ground search for 37-year-old Yun-Seob Shin was carried out yesterday amid temperatures hitting nearly 40 degrees Celsius.
Police said Shin, who is believed to be from Victoria and drove a white Nissan X-Trail, has been in Alice Springs for the past month.
He didn’t come to work yesterday morning.
His colleagues told police he had informed them of his intention to go camping near the Boggy Hole or Palm Valley on Thursday and Friday.
Both campsites are in Finke Gorge National Park, about 140 kilometers west of Alice Springs.
Police said Shin’s last confirmed location was at the Stuart Well Roadhouse, 90 kilometers southwest of Alice Springs, on Thursday.
“It is not known what provisions or bush skills Mr. Shin has, and the police are concerned about his well-being.”
The police urged anyone with information about Mr. Shin to call them on 131 444.
