    Slightly OT, but it makes me wonder who was the brains behind WA's latest tourism push as "The Road Trip State".
    Well equipped and prepared locals can get into strife never mind cars full of foreign dreamers.

    Hijack over, hope the blokes OK.

    I’ve not seen or heard any updates so assume still missing. Can’t help think the worst and he’s speared off onto the bush making finding him very hard. :(

    Hope they find him soon, not a place to be stranded, injured or not.
    Makes carrying a tracking device well worth the expense.

    Maybe he meant not to be found... An exit strategy perhaps.
    Either way, it will be tough for family and friends. Condolences.

    Update from Kimberley Police -:


    Kimberley District - WA Police Force
    2 hrs ·
    Missing Person Update: Daniel Price is yet to be located but the search continues in full swing.
    Yesterday we conducted aerial searches along the entirety of the Gibb River Road and tracks near the Diggers Rest Station. Our most creditable possible sighting came from a member of the public who puts a motorbike just south of Wyndham on the King River Road, although nothing is confirmed as yet. Police and SES have been deployed in that area since 6.30am today and we have just deployed a helicopter as well.
    Thanks for everyone’s concern, the message is right across the Kimberley and I do ask for everyone to keep a look out as he could be anywhere, keep sharing. Whilst you’re on your travels to anywhere up here and see an off-road enduro motorbike we would like to know, there are not many up her at this time of the year. The search continues. Kununurra police station phone number is covered 24hrs a day, 9166 4530.

    I drove a road train repairing the GRR jump ups after the ‘98 wet season.
    It covers a lot of country.
    Hoping for a safe outcome.

    RIP. Dont know what happened, but it always scares me when people travel alone. Something very simple can end it all.

    Bugger alright. Young fit bloke. Interesting that he didn’t have a locator, if that is the case.

    Yes, strange about the locator. He looked like he was well prepared. Sad. RIP.
