Divers may join hunt for 65-year-old

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

BRING­ING in po­lice divers will be the next step in the search for Christo­pher Pren­tice.

The 65-year-old dis­ap­peared on Novem­ber 15, and since then po­lice, SES and vol­un­teers have scoured the Kalpowar area.

“At this point he’s ei­ther there and we can’t find him or he’s ac­tively avoid­ing us,” Monto po­lice Sergeant Glen Fletcher said.

“We have searched in most prob­a­ble ar­eas and will stop now un­til we get more in­for­ma­tion.”

The po­lice have al­ready used dog squads and trail bikes to search the area, while the SES has searched on horse­back.

Po­lice divers are a last re­sort, and will check in creeks for the miss­ing man.
