Search postponed: David Prideaux's disappearance will remain a mystery for a while longer.

Prideaux search called off


The proposed search for missing hunter David Prideaux has been called off after discussions with his family.

“Last night a meeting was held with the family to discuss the search, and whilst they were extremely appreciative of the offer from the hunting community, a number of circumstances came to light that could impact on the search and the family,” Alison O’Connor of Field and Game Australia said today.

“It was agreed by the family and all hunting organisationrepresentatives in attendance that the search should not proceed at thistime.”

Mr Prideaux went missing more than 12 months ago in rugged country while hunting deer near Mansfield, Victoria. An extensive search found no trace of him and his disappearance remains a mystery.

“As you can imagine, the family have been extremely traumatised by David’s disappearance, and we respect their wishes and remain available to assist if required in the future,” Ms O’Connor said.

She thanked people who had volunteered to help in the search. 

“We will let you knowif, and when, things change in the future,” she said.
