BREAKING NEWS: Human remains found in the search for ‘secret lover’ missing campers – after Jetstar pilot is arrested and charged with their murders
Human remains have been found in the search for missing campers Russell Hill and Carol Clay.
Gregory Lynn, 55, was arrested last Monday and charged over the couple’s deaths, after they vanished from a campsite while on a secret rendezvous.
The remains have not yet been formally identified.
It’s understood it could take ‘quite some time’ to determine if the remains are in fact those of Ms Clay and Mr Hill.

Police released an image of the area they were searching for the couple’s remains last week.
The photos show the type of thick terrain police will need to navigate to exhume the bodies of the slain campers, who were allegedly murdered by Lynn on the day they arrived at the Wonnangatta Valley in the Victorian Alps.
Police seized a Nissan Patrol belonging to Lynn last Monday when Special Operations officers dramatically arrested the Caroline Springs man after tracking his movements and flying into remote bushland by helicopter.
A trailer being towed by an off-road vehicle – also captured on CCTV the night the secret lovers vanished, remains missing. Police believe it was likely sold on Gumtree.
A subsequent search of his property did not uncover the trailer, which police hope could be the final piece of the puzzle.
