Family of missing woman to search WA on Alice lead
The family of a woman who went missing near Alice Springs four years ago say they have had new information about where she may have travelled to next.
Jenny Lane was reported missing in April 2004.
Her sister and brother have returned to Alice Springs this week for the third time since their sister's disappearance in the hope of confirming she is alive and well.
John Lane says they have a new lead after speaking to a traditional land owner this morning.
"We spoke to someone who had met with her a few days after she was here," he said.
"In fact after she was officially a missing person, and that she had said that she really wanted to go to Balgo which is you know, Western Australia and that was really interesting to hear someone saying so clearly that Jenny had said I'm going to Balgo."
Ms Lane's family say they will take their search for her to Western Australia next month.
John and Susan Lane will leave Alice Springs tomorrow after the campaign to find her through the town's network of remote organisations.
Mr Lane is urging anyone with information to come forward.
"We want to make sure that Jenny understands that there's no reason she needs to be in hiding from us and you know we don't even necessarily want to get her and take her home," he said.
"We just really want to know that she's alive and she's okay."
