Victorian Police say they have finished searching an area of bushland in relation to missing campers Russell Hill and Carol Clay.
“Victoria Police has now concluded the search in bushland north of Dargo,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
“As this matter is before the courts, we will not be facilitating any interviews in relation to the investigation.”
Locals helped police bring a large excavator and a bobcat to the remote search site, which is about 15km north of Dargo in Victoria’s alpine region.
The area police are scouring is an old gold-mining area known as the Grant Historic Area.
Mr Hill, 74, and Ms Clay, 73, have been missing since they vanished while camping in the Wonnangatta Valley on March 20 last year.
He’s been remanded in custody and will face court in May next year.
