THE body of a man be­lieved to be miss­ing 87-year-old man Alexan­der Hen­der­son was found by searchers yesterday in bush­land south of Mul­laloo Drive.

Af­ter two days of search­ing Pin­na­roo Val­ley Memo­rial Park, po­lice had re­con­vened at Hil­larys po­lice sta­tion on Tues­day evening to go through in­for­ma­tion re­ceived from the pub­lic.

Mr Hen­der­son was last seen leav­ing his Hil­larys home at 4.30pm on Thurs­day, Au­gust 16.

Po­lice, mounted of­fi­cers and SES vol­un­teers fo­cused early searches on parks in the Hil­larys, Pad­bury, Kal­la­roo and Craigie ar­eas as well as the coast.

Yesterday they were search­ing the Kal­la­roo area, with Mr Hen­der­son be­lieved to have been seen walk­ing along Bridge­wa­ter Drive about 2pm the day be­fore he went miss­ing.

Po­lice had ap­pealed to mem­bers of the pub­lic to re­view any dash­cam or CCTV footage they had from the Kal­la­roo area between noon and 7pm on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 15, for sight­ings of the grand­fa­ther.

Peo­ple who live or work in the Kal­la­roo area had also been en­cour­aged to check their back­yards, sheds, garages or other ar­eas.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the cir­cum­stances of Mr Hen­der­son’s death is on­go­ing. A re­port will be pre­pared for the Coroner.
