Man arrested over missing Victorian campers


The disappearance of campers Carol Clay and Russell Hill has baffled Victoria Police and haunted their families, and yesterday it was confirmed that 55yo Melbourne man Greg Lynn has been arrested. Let’s walk it back… Clay and Hill, both in their 70s, went missing in the Wonnangatta Valley in northeastern Victoria last year. They had travelled from Melbourne’s southeastern suburbs, and Hill did not tell his wife he was going away with Clay. They were last heard from on 20 March 2020, and other campers came across the pair’s burnt-out campsite and vehicle the next day. Police have said it’s their belief that they have been murdered. After making multiple appeals for information, hundreds of people across the state had provided assistance to police. On the man who was arrested by police – not a lot has been disclosed. He is a Jetstar pilot and an “experienced bushman”. No charges have been laid at this stage.
