Divers may join hunt for 65-year-old
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.
