Using helicopters, off-road buggies, and local specialists to assist them navigate through the inaccessible territory, Australian officials started a massive search operation in the hopes of finding Tea.
The Flinders River region, close to Richmond township, was identified as the crime’s exact location by investigators.
The enormous search for the 19-year-old is currently concentrated in the area of her last known location of her phone.
Inspector Damien Crosby said of the probe: “The terrain out at Richmond, particularly coming into summer, can be quite challenging.

“Our priority continues to be to locate Tea safe and well and we will continue to search in that Richmond area until we’re given information to the contrary.”
