Police 'digging for remains at Dubbo'

BUNDABERG dad Mick Peet has been relentlessly looking for his daughter Lateesha Nolan ever since she went missing seven years ago.

And today he got another step closer to finding his girl when detectives called to tell him they would begin excavating a riverbank in NSW where they believe her body may be buried.

The potential breakthrough comes three weeks after detectives captured accused murderer Malcolm Naden, who was wanted over her disappearance in 2005.

Mr Peet said police would not tell him if the lead came from Naden himself.

"I got the call from detectives in Dubbo saying they were conducting a search at Butlers Falls," he said.

Mr Naden said watching footage of excavators digging through the dirt in search of his daughter's remains was a strange feeling.

"It's a terrible feeling," he said.

"It's pretty hard to watch because you don't know what they'll dig up."

Mr Peet said Butlers Falls was a site of many happy family memories where he used to take Lateesha and her brother swimming.

"To think that could have been the last place she ever saw and was alive...," he said.

"It was always a lovely little spot."

Mr Peet said he hoped Lateesha's body could be found so he could hold a proper memorial for her.

"I want somewhere where her kids can go and put flowers for her," he said.

"I made a promise to Lateesha that I'd find out what happened to her.

"I just want answers."
