Queensland police are excavating a driveway in the hope of finding a vehicle believed to be linked to the disappearance of Gold Coast woman Novy Chardon.
Investigators are excavating a southern Queensland driveway looking for a vehicle believed to be linked to the disappearance of Gold Coast woman Novy Chardon.
Police, including homicide squad officers, will search other areas of the Mt Nathan property over the coming days, looking for evidence relating to the disappearance of the Indonesian-born 34-year-old.
“We’re digging up a driveway, and it is connected to the case of Novy Chardon,” police told AAP.
“There’s meant to be a vehicle that’s underground that they’re digging up.”
Police wouldn’t say whose property it was or what the significance of the vehicle was.
But they did say it wasn’t the home of her husband John.
Ms Chandon has not been seen since February last year.
A week after she went missing, officers and SES volunteers scoured a quiet semi-rural road that runs behind Dreamworld, not far from the Chardon home at Upper Coomera.
They believe Mrs Chardon’s Volvo SUV may have been driven along the road some time between her disappearance and the evening of February 11 when it was found near Nerang railway station, more than 20 kilometres away.
In January it was announced that John Chardon, 66, will stand trial on eight charges of sexual crimes against children, alleged to have occurred between 1998 and 1999.
They include three counts of rape, four counts of indecent treatment of a child under 16 and one count of indecent treatment of a child under 16 in care.
The charges aren’t linked to his wife’s disappearance, which Chardon said he doesn’t know anything about.
