    Just came to start a thread and so pleased you have already done that Doc …..

    They have already drained the dam on the property and AJ has not been found. A positive hopefully!

    A dam on the 650-acre property was drained and searched by police divers and teams on trail bikes and horses are scouring the more difficult land terrain.

    I haven't seen the Police mention this Hilux, anyone? Why wouldn't they?

    It’s in the Chanel Nine Video that Doc posted … on the news tonight …..

    ETA The Police are currently considering upgrading this case to an Amber Alert, they are reviewing the info I believe.

    The Toyota is mentioned there - as in "the family said", which most of us have seen - but has it been mentioned in a Police media release?

    The car that was mentioned in the family's post:

    A suspicious vehicle was spotted outside on the farm’s private road with the following description right before AJ went missing:
    * Toyota Hilux (presumed to be ‘87 model)
    * White
    * Dual cab
    * Canopy
    * White ‘TOYOTA’ writing on the front grill

    Only two reasons that I can think of.

    1. They are onto someone and don't want them alerted as they track them down

    2. They don't believe that a white Toyota is involved

    My gosh ... that is a super remote area. Very little chance of any local CCTV to help the police in this matter.
    And very hard to find a little boy if he has wandered off and got himself lost.

    There doesn't even seem to be any nearby towns.
