Family grieves as land search for missing boy suspended - Today News Post News Today || Headlines Today

The family of an eight-year-old boy lost deep in WA’s south west are “grieving” after police tragically called off their large-scale land search.

Inspector Glenn Spencer said State Emergency Service volunteers have “exhausted” their search options surrounding a site the boys family were camping at, inside the Mt Frankland National Park, north of Walpole.

Insp. Spencer said the area’s notorious waterways would now become authorities’ sole focus.

“This afternoon we made the critical decision to suspend our land search operations for the missing boy,” he said.
