Kimberley Land Search Operation

The Western Australian Police Force is currently searching for a man who is believed to have become separated from a group of people in the vicinity of Mitchell Plateau.

WA Police have this afternoon been advised the man may have been a passenger on an unknown vessel carrying a group of people which landed in a remote area of the Kimberley District on Friday, 5 April 2024.

The land search operation is in its preliminary stages and is taking place in an extremely remote area with challenging terrain.

Further updates will be released as they come to hand, but please note that due to these challenging circumstances, it is unlikely we will be able to provide any further update today.
