POLICE searching for a missing father and daughter at Pottsville have located two bodies this morning.

Greg Hutchings, 35, and his four-year-old daughter Eeva have been missing from the Pottsville area since January 11.

The pair had been due to meet up with the girl’s mother at a park in the town, but never arrived.


Around 8:30am, Police from Tweed Byron Local Area Command and the State Emergency Service began searching sand dunes north of Mooball Creek and north of Pottsville for the pair.

Just before 10am, two bodies were located by an SES volunteer in dense bushland at the Pottsville sand hills..

A crime scene has been established and forensic investigators are at the location.

The bodies are yet to be formally identified and police are unable to speculate whether they are that of the missing 35-year-old man and his four-year-old daughter.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
