    ABC NEWS – MON 13th January 2014. Read More…
    Police and volunteers have spent the day searching dunes and bushland on the NSW far north coast for a father and daughter missing since Saturday.
    This morning, 20 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers conducted a ground search of an area near the beach at Pottsville where the pair were last seen at about 12:30pm on the 11th January.
    New South Wales Police Inspector Greg Jago says investigators wanted to eliminate the possibility the pair were camping there.
    Mr Hutchings did not have access to a car, so police are concerned they have been injured or worse.
    Police from Queensland have also joined the search for the pair.

    NSW father and daughter search continues
    Water police are set to search waterways in the small town of Pottsville on Tuesday for Greg Hutchings, 35, and his daughter Eeva Dorendahl.
    Tweed Police Inspector Darren Steel told AAP marine local area command police would search waterways on Tuesday.
    Insp Steel did not believe Mr Hutchings had posed any threats of harm to his daughter.
    Asked if custody issues could be a factor, Insp Steel said police would be trying to ascertain whether there might be any "underlying" reason involved in the disappearance.
    "We are not sure at this stage and are still making inquiries as to how they have gone missing," he said.
    "She is a four-year-old child, it's a very hot day ... and she has been away from a home for a number of days," Tweed Heads Police Inspector Greg Jago told Seven Network on Monday.

    Australia Queensland daughter disappeared three days the search operation is still in progress
    【大纪元2014年01月13日讯】(大纪元记者黄阡陌悉尼报导)警方仍在澳洲纽省北部海岸密集的灌木丛中搜索一名昆省女孩和她的父亲,搜寻行动目前已经进入第三天。
    据澳洲广播公司报导,警方严重关切4岁女孩道伦代尔(Eeva Dorendahl)和其35岁的父亲胡钦斯(Greg Hutchings)的目前状况。他们在周六离开纽省波茨维尔(Pottsville),去见道伦代尔的母亲。他们最后一次被人看见是上周六中午12点半在当地的波茨维尔路上。
    道伦代尔此前呆在她父亲在波茨维尔的家里,计划返回其母亲在阳光海岸肯肯(Kin Kin)的家中。他们发出了一条手机短信说,他们已经上路了,但此后再也没有音讯。
    胡钦斯没有车,所以警察担心他们已受伤,甚或情况更糟。
    在更大范围的搜索中,警方并没有发现他们的任何踪迹。代理警督罗茨(Warwick Rhodes)说,警方十分担心父女俩遭遇了意外。他说:“显然,道伦代尔的母亲现在心急如焚,胡钦斯的家人也很担心。我们尽全力询问他在这里认识的每个人,我们需要公众的协助来帮助找到这对父女。”
    他说:“警方需要在大片的灌木丛和海滩进行搜索,我们试图缩小搜索区域,这是我们能够找到他们父女的最后一个区域。”
    道伦代尔很瘦弱,有长长的棕色头发,白种人面孔。失踪前,有人见到她穿着一件大号的蓝白色裙子,和彩色短裤。她的父亲也很瘦弱,身高大约1.75米,白种人面孔,留着棕色卷曲的短发。他身穿黑色长袖衬衫和灰色裤子,背着一个黑背包。
    警方敦促任何看见这对父女的人尽快和警方联系。可以拨打灭罪电话1800 333 000或者联系网站:https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/

    Police appeal to dad Greg Hutchings over missing girl Eeva Dorendahl
    HELICOPTERS, jetskis and volunteers have scoured Pottsville in northern NSW in a fruitless attempt to find a missing father and daughter.
    Greg Hutchings, 35, and his four-year-old daughter Eeva were last seen on Saturday with his accounts going untouched and phone switched off since the disappearance.
    Tweed Heads Inspector Gary Cowan said bush land, water canals and camp sites were being searched.
    He said buses, trains and airports had also been checked.
    "The first thing I'd like is for him to contact the nearest police station so that Eeva can actually be sighted by police and we can ensure that she is safe and well," Inspector Greg Jago said.

    "There's been no money withdrawn from any accounts and also with the phone, the phone is switched off so we can't do any triangulation with the phone either," he said.
    He says there have been no other sightings since Saturday.
    "We're going to check all the beach areas and we'll do the creeks and rivers in the nearby areas," he said.
    "We've got our area command on jet skis. We've also got the assistance of Qld Pol air that will come down and do a sweep of the beach with us.

    Drawing of dad Greg Hutchings the only reminder of missing girl Eeva Dorendahl
    Ms Hutchings told The Gold Coast Bulletin today she believed Eeva would be safe if she was with dad Greg, who has been embroiled in a custody battle with the mother of the child.
    It comes as police scaled back a search of bushland near the Pottsville unit Ms Hutchings shared with her son on the fifth day of an investigation into the pair's disappearance.
    Ms Hutchings said Eeva had drawn the picture recently after becoming fascinated with an old photo of her father.
    Insp Cowan said police were still hoping to find the pair alive.

    Mum of missing Pottsville man on ‘setting record straight’
    She said her son and Michelle were not involved in a "custody" battle, but that he was trying to prevent an international abduction.
    She accused Michelle of a breach of Court Parenting Orders and said there was much evidence to suggest she was planning to take Eeva to Finland permanently, "where she has inherited property and vehicle, and went to uni".
    Michelle has previously rejected this claim.
    Ms Hutchings maintains she does not know where her son is.
    "I can only hope he has taken her and keeping her safe, in Australia, but I don't see how that's possible," she said.
    "A total mystery to all who know him.
    "We want Greg Hutchings and Eeva Dorendahl-Hutchings found ASAP.

    We're not helping, says mother of missing dad Greg Hutchings and Eeva
    The mother of a man missing with his four-year-old daughter on the NSW north coast for more than a week says her family is not hiding the pair and their disappearance is a mystery.
    His mother, Diana Hutchings, said police have searched her home, seizing computers and other items.
    ''Police were saying someone in the family had to be helping him out, hiding him,'' Ms Hutchings said.
    She concedes that since her son does not have access to a car, someone probably helped him and Eeva leave the area, but insists it was not her or her family.
    ''There's absolutely no trace,'' she said. ''Someone has got to have taken him out of the area, but how or why he's gone I don't know. He doesn't know anyone from around here.''

    Fears grow for missing father Greg Hutchings and his daughter Eeva as it's revealed a bitter custody dispute is just start of the family's dramas
    GREG Hutchings is feeling sick. After battling a severe gastric bug for three days he decides he can't make the three-hour trip north to Nambour and emails his ex-partner Michelle Dorendahl.
    He tells her he will hand their four-year-old daughter Eeva over two days later by the shoreline of Pottsville, on the state's far north coast.
    Greg leaves the first-storey flat of his mother Diana Hutchings with Eeva shortly after 12pm on 11 January.
    -----
    "It's getting harder and harder," sister Sheri Hutchings says from the back veranda of the White Jade cafe, Greg's last known place of employment.
    "I've started to crack."
    Greg's mother feels in her gut that her son and granddaughter are dead.
    Eeva's mother Michelle Dorendahl is "very stressed" and "laying low" say senior police. Her lawyer describes the situation as "delicate".
    -----
    The Sunday Telegraph can confirm there is a Finnish passport in Eeva's name currently in the possession of a Queensland solicitor.
    Police have confirmed the unresolved custody dispute is being investigated as a possible motive.

    Murder probe after bodies found in NSW
    Tweed Heads Detective Superintendent Stuart Wilkins said the search had turned to sand dunes north of Pottsville on Tuesday after police received specific information last week.
    "We are unable at this time to identify those bodies but it is certainly possible that they are our missing persons."
    Supt Wilkins told News Corp Australia it was a murder investigation but the cause of death would be a matter for the coroner.
    Mr Hutchings' grieving mother, Diana, said that Eeva was a beautiful girl and her son was a beautiful man.

    Greg Hutchings left for swim with daughter Eeva, then never came home
    When Greg Hutchings left his mother's home on the NSW north coast with his four-year-old daughter just over a fortnight ago, he kissed his mother goodbye and said he would be back in a couple of hours.
    There was no indication of the devastation that was to come.
    He said he would be back just after 1pm. But concerns were first raised when Eeva's mother turned up at Mrs Hutchings' house, asking for him.
    Police did not believe the pair, who had no access to a car, could have travelled far but their search included the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, where Mr Hutchings had previously lived.

    Heartbreak in the dunes as Greg Hutchings and Eeva Dorendahl found dead
    GREG Hutchings had come to think of the idyllic stretch of white sand a 30-minute walk from his modest Pottsville unit as his hide-away from the world.
    And it was here, under a giant Pandanus tree metres from the beach and only accessible by foot across a sandy track littered with rocks, that two bodies believed to be his and that of his four-year-old daughter Eeva were found yesterday.
    Hundreds of surfers, fishermen and swimmers potentially wandered past the spot in the 18 days since the 35-year-old and Eeva were reported missing as tourists flocked to the northern NSW coast, filling up all four caravan parks between Pottsville and *Cabarita.
    "They were under a tree and very difficult to find, we were quite lucky to spot them," Det Supt Wilkins said.
    News of the discovery spread quickly through the close-knit community of Pottsville.

    A family's worst fears come true as the bodies of Greg Hutchings and his daughter Eeva, 4, are found
    • Bodies of two people discovered at 10am this morning
    • Police are expected to formally identify the pair soon
    • Father and daughter were last seen on Saturday, January 11th
    • Family: "She was a beautiful girl and he was a beautiful man as well"
    "This is a murder investigation but it is too early to speculate on who is responsible for these deaths," he said.
    Mr Hutchings had told Ms Dorendahl he was too unwell from a gastric bug to drive Eeva the three hours north to Ms Dorendahl's Nambour home in Queensland, instead arranging a handover in Pottsville on January 11.
    When he did not show up, the alarm was raised.

    Greg Hutchings' mother does not believe the deaths of her son and granddaughter was a murder-suicide (edited title)
    The distraught Pottsville grandmother is urging police and the community to keep an open mind to third-party involvement after two bodies were found on Tuesday, believed to be her son Greg Hutchings, 35, and his tiny, blonde-haired daughter Eeva.
    Her desperate plea comes as the close-knit Pottsville community paints a picture of Mr Hutchings as a kind but almost reclusive man rarely spotted during his six months or so in the sleepy beach-side town.
    Ms Hutchings said yesterday it was too soon for her to reflect upon the lives of her son and granddaughter, but she hoped police and the community were looking at the case objectively.
    "I don't believe it was a suicide-murder ... none of us can imagine him doing anything to harm this child," she said.
    "Two people have passed away and I think they deserve an investigation of the truth.
    "The community deserves an investigation of the truth. I know the community wants answers, we want answers."
