    Wow ... what a case this is! I wasn't aware of it until this round of searches for Lyn. Now that I am reading about it, I just can't understand why this man - Chris Dawson - has gone 30+ years without an intensive investigation.

    The only reasons that I have seen stated anywhere by the police (at the time) was that they didn't have any proof that Lyn went anywhere other than she just left.
    What a different philosophy we work with these days. If there is no proof that a missing person has gone anywhere else, we look for proof of life.

    19 years ago they found a pink cardigan of Lyn's in a dig, but then could not afford to dig any further. Let's hope for all involved that they find Lyn now, and get this alleged murder solved once and for all.

    Here is the short trailer for the podcast "The Teacher's Pet" that Hedley Thomas (senior journo for The Australian) created to put the focus on Lyn.
    Thanks to Hedley and his efforts this thing has blown wide open and has the public attention that it requires.

    Chris Dawson arrested over missing wife Lynette

    NSW police are comfortable with the strength of the case against Chris Dawson despite not finding the body of his wife who mysteriously vanished in 1982.

    The 70-year-old was arrested by Queensland homicide detectives at Biggera Waters, on the Gold Coast, this morning.

    Dawson was denied bail and is expected to be extradited to NSW, where he may face Parramatta Local Court as early as tomorrow
