Skeletal remains found in missing woman’s four wheel drive submerged in lake

A FOUR-wheel drive belonging to a missing Queensland woman has been found at the bottom of a lake near Mt Isa.

Police have confirmed the vehicle belongs to missing woman Rosemary McLean who went missing in January.

They said a man in a boat raised the alarm after spotting the roof of the vehicle in Lake Moondarra on Monday.


Skeletal remains were later found inside the four-wheel-drive, which was retrieved from the lake on Tuesday.

Officers are still working to identify the remains, but they are believed to be that of Ms McLean.

Police divers and forensic teams were expected to continue searching Lake Moondarra today.

It’s understood water levels have dropped in the lake over the past few months, revealing the roof of the vehicle.
