Body of woman found after two weeks lost in the Australian outback

Body of woman found after two weeks lost in the Australian outback

Police found a body on Wednesday they suspect is the only casualty among three people who became stranded in the arid central Australian Outback nearly two weeks ago.

"Police located the body, which is believed to be that Claire Hockridge during search efforts", Northern Territory police said in an emailed statement.

Mr Tran was found by a pastoralist who was conducting a bore check at the Palmer Valley station south of Alice Springs.

She was with a group of three that had been missing in the outback since November 19, before her two companions were found.

On Wednesday morning, police inspected tracks they believed belonged to Ms Hockridge.

Speaking alongside Ms Hockridge's family members at the Alice Springs Police Station on Wednesday, Mr Tran thanked the NT emergency services and rescue teams for their efforts.

Mr Tran and Ms Hockridge planned to head towards a highway, while Ms McBeath-Riley stayed in the area, thinking her dog would not survive a long walk.

Claire Hockridge, 46, had gone to look for help after she became stranded in the outback along with partner Tamra McBeath-Riley and family friend Phu Tran.

The trio were travelling together in a ute south of Alice Springs when their vehicle became bogged.

Their ute was bogged in a sandy river bed 22km from the Stuart Highway.

"We are all grieving and exhausted from the emotional roller coaster that we've ridden", Sarah Hockridge told reporters.

"We are really concerned".

Police warned today that Ms Hockridge had been missing in remote Central Australia for more than two weeks with limited to no water supplies.

Ms McBeath-Riley was rescued on Sunday afternoon after a station worker noticed tyre tracks and alerted police.

The group's ordeal began on November 23 when they set out in a rented utility vehicle for an afternoon drive south of Alice Springs, to see Chambers Pillar, sandstone formations about 160km south of the town.

They left a note inside their vehicle.

Police have not revealed details of the circumstances of the death, which will be investigated by a coroner, Northern Territory Police Superintendent Pauline Vicary said.

Ms McBeath-Riley spoke outside hospital on Monday, saying she was "worried to death", because she thought the pair - who had a Global Positioning System and compass with them - would have earlier reached the Stuart Highway.
