The search for the remains of Daniel Morcombe at a site near Beerwah is expected to be concluded next week.
Commissioner Bob Atkinson has been in contact with the Morcombe family about the plans to end the search.
“The QPS has talked with a range of experts who have been consulting on the search, and conducted an external peer review to ensure that best practice has been followed during the process.”
“I acknowledge the police and SES volunteers who have worked tirelessly in incredibly difficult terrain,” Commissioner Atkinson said.
“I am sure the people of Queensland are grateful for their unrelenting efforts in locating remains which have been DNA tested as belonging to Daniel.”
At the conclusion of the search, we will provide a summary of what was located at the search scene.
