Human remains found inside submerged car in Qld identified

Police have confirmed that human remains found inside a submerged car at Borumba Dam are those of a missing man who disappeared 13-years-ago.

Stuart Gatehouse, 58, was reported missing from Kenilworth in 2004 and has not been seen since.

In April this year, a member of the public notified police after they picked up a large object near the dam’s boat ramp while using a depth sounder.


Police divers located the vehicle and after retrieving it from the water, they discovered the skeletal remains, now confirmed as belonging to Mr Gatehouse, inside.

Police say preliminary results indicate the death was non-suspicious.
