Second member of trio missing for two weeks in NT outback found alive

There’s been a second miracle in the search for a trio who went missing in the searing Northern Territory outback two weeks ago.

Just one person remains missing after a pastoralist found Phu Tran, 40, in the Palmer Valley area south of Alice Springs on Tuesday morning.

Mr Tran managed to survive after finding water, and is being taken to hospital where he’ll be treated for exposure.

The first member of the group, 52-year-old Tamra McBeath-Riley, was rescued on Sunday after keeping herself alive on water she found in a watering hole for cattle.

Superintendent Pauline Vicary said the car was found after a pastoralist spotted tyre tracks nearby. 

The air search was redirected and they spotted the vehicle and a note left inside detailing that the car had become bogged in sand. 

Claire Hockridge, 46, remains missing as the search continues a fortnight after the group told family and friends they were going for a drive out of Alice Springs.

The trio stayed together for a number of days but ended up separated in the search for help.
