Huge Search Continues For Missing Mum Karen Ristevski
The search for missing Melbourne mother Karen Ristevski has resumed on rural land northwest of the city.
Police, firefighters and SES volunteers on Tuesday returned to the Gisborne and Toolern Vale search area which they are scouring metre by metre.
Dams were drained on Monday as a specialist cadaver dog - brought to Victoria from NSW - joined the huge search team which includes Victoria Police's mounted branch, the airwing and dog squad.
"Police will continue searching an area in Melbourne's northwest today as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Karen Ristevski," a spokesman said on Tuesday morning.
The head of the missing persons unit, Detective Inspector Stephen Dennis, says police are "confident" they'll find out what happened to 47-year-old Ms Ristevski.
She hasn't been seen since June 29 when she reportedly left her Avondale Heights home after an argument with her husband Borce.
She hasn't used her bank accounts or phone since.
Authorities have previously searched Gisborne and Toolern Vale but they returned this week for what Det Insp Dennis said was "the most significant search we've conducted to date".
Police have refused to say if new information has led them to focus all their efforts in the area.
