The first crocodile trapped in the hunt for a crocodile that may be responsible for the disappearance of Arthur Booker in the Endeavour River near Cooktown in Queensland was not responsible for his disappearance.
The crocodile has now been set free and tests will now be carried out a further two crocodiles that have been caught.
A man thought to be from Queensland has been found dead in the Australian outback. The body was found in Western Australia’sKimberley region, in the far north of the state on the Meda cattle station, about 40km west of Derby.
Near the body was the man’s desperate plea for assistance with the word ‘help’ written in the dirt. He had constructed a shelter and his water bottle was empty. No vehicle has yet been found.
The man was some 15km from the Meda cattle station homestead on the 1.25 million acre property.
The temperatures in this region had reached 40C last week. The man is thought to have died a few days ago.
