Esther Wallace, 47, who went missing on Nov. 30, was discovered dead around 4 p.m. on Sunday. The body was discovered after a large-scale land and air search. Despite the mysterious circumstances involving her disappearance, detectives are not treating her death as suspicious.
Large Scale Search
The mystery surrounding a missing bushwalker who disappeared without a trace has been exacerbated by a startling admission from her frantic son, who fears the worst. She became separated from her companion during a sunrise bushwalk at Federal Falls in State Recreation.
Over the last ten days, detectives have searched in dense bushland for several prospective clues, such as a white crochet coat that has not yet been linked to Wallace, but she remains missing, a source posted.
After another weekend of searching, detectives reevaluated the large-scale search, which included SES volunteers from across the state, local police, police air and trail bike units, Rural Fire Service volunteers, and National Parks officers who desperately searched the treacherous terrain.
Before the dead body of Esther was found, concerned friends set up a Where’s Esther Wallace Facebook page amid growing concerns for her welfare.
Mysterious Death and Suspicions
Her body was discovered around 4 p.m. on Sunday, two kilometers from where she was last seen, she went for a walk with her partner around 5.40 a.m., and he reported her missing at 8 a.m.
Tyrone Stewart, his son, does not believe his mother is at Mount Canobolas and claims she is not a bushwalker. He stated that his mother enjoys fishing and camping but not bushwalking to watch the sunrise.
Lyn Wallace, Ms. Wallace’s bereaved mother, stated that the police had provided no information about her daughter’s death. Another relative expressed hope that an autopsy will shed light on the enigmatic situation.
Ms. Wallace’s partner was never a suspect, according to detectives, and he has been cooperating with them.
