Images of the area police are searching for the bodies of Russell Hill and Carol Clay have been released.

Victoria Police shared the images Friday 26 November, stating they were taken near the preliminary search area to give an indication of the terrain investigators are dealing with.

Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Bob Hill said Thursday 25 November, detectives identified a crime scene within the Great Alpine Area.

“Our efforts to locate the remains of Russell and Carol continue,” he said.

“Forensic specialists will commence searching in that area in the coming days.

“We are hopeful this arrest brings us a step closer to providing the answers the families have been desperately searching for and richly deserve.”

Police are still searching for a rusty silver/blue 7×5 trailer with off road wheels that was attached to the Nissan Patrol, which was seized by police when the man was arrested on Monday.

“This trailer remains outstanding and police are keen to talk to anyone who purchased or received a similar trailer particularly during the period of March to July last year,” Commissioner Hill said.

“We believe the trailer was sold on Gumtree.”
