They have also repeated their plea for information about a white dual cab ute seen in the area where Mr Hill and Ms Clay were camping before they disappeared. It is almost a year since the pair went missing at Wonnangatta in Victoria’s high country. Mr Hill, 74, left his Drouin home on March 19, 2020, and collected his friend Ms Clay, 73, from her home in Pakenham in his white Toyota LandCruiser.

Mr Hill was last heard from on March 20 over HF radio, while Ms Clay had told friends she was heading away and was expecting to return by March 29….
