Almost two weeks after Esther Wallace, a 47-year-old bushwalker, went missing in New South Wales, her body was discovered on Sunday afternoon. Her body was found about two kilometers from where she was last seen at Federal Falls. The discovery of her remains brings to a close the search for Wallace, who was last seen on November 30. She reportedly got separated from her partner while they were walking in the bush.
Her partner raised the alarm at 8 this morning. The police confirmed that a body, which was believed to be that of Tottenham resident Esther Wallace, was found on Sunday.
The police stated that the body was not officially identified yet. However, it is believed to be that of Wallace, who went missing on November 30.
The death of the woman is not being treated as suspicious. According to John Medcalf, the mayor of the Lachlan Shire, Tottenham is a tight-knit community that was concerned about the disappearance of Wallace.
The local community was also concerned about Wallace, as she was a part of the community. The police, along with other agencies such as the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service, conducted a search for the missing woman. Her son, Tyrone Stewart, said last week that his mother was not a fan of walking to see the sunrise.
According to Stewart, his mother would never go to watch the sunrise. She also doesn’t like bushwalking in particular.
