Missing campers found dead in car in Victoria

VICTORIA, Australia: A young couple who went missing on a camping trip have been found dead in regional Victoria.

Caleb Forbes, 22, and his girlfriend, Shannon Lowden, 21, had set off for the trip last Friday for Thomson Dam in West Gippsland.

An alarm was raised when Forbes failed to attend work at Lowe Electrical two days later.

Air and land searches were initiated with help from family and friends on Monday.

Over 100 people had joined the search efforts in Baw Baw National Park for the pair who had not been seen for a week.

“The pair were found deceased in their car on Trig East track, east of Thomson Dam about 11am,” Victoria police said.

The circumstances of their deaths are being investigated.
