Overdue party in Alice Springs

An air and land search is currently underway for an overdue party in Central Australia.

The overdue person is 37-year-old Yun-Seob Shin, who has been in Alice Springs for one month, and is possibly from Victoria. He drives what is described as a White Nissan X-Trail, registration unknown.

Mr Shin failed to turn up for work this morning, and had previously advised colleagues of his intention to go camping near Boggy Hole or Palm Valley on Thursday and Friday.

Mr Shin’s last confirmed location was Stuart Well Roadhouse on Thursday 26 November.

Senior Sergeant Shaun Furniss said, “The temperatures are extreme and the terrain is challenging out there. It is unknown what provisions or bush skills Mr Shin has, and police hold concerns for his welfare. We ask that if anyone has come across Mr Shin to please contact police urgently on 131 444.”
