    Witch doctor helps in search for woman in far north Queensland

    THE search for a woman missing for four weeks in far north Queensland's outback has taken a twist after a witch doctor had visions of the 23-year-old on sacred Aboriginal land.
    A traditional owner, nicknamed Dundee, has been called in to search on horseback to find Allison Bernard who mysteriously disappeared on February 10.

    A mammoth land and air search, trackers, SES, police and divers failed to find a trace of the Kowanyama woman, with crews covering hundreds of square kilometres.

    The woman had travelled to Coen and met a man at a bar before travelling to his home near the Archer River, about an hour's drive away, about 10pm on the Sunday. It is understood the man was the last person to see her alive and told police she left while it was still dark.

    The witch doctor told the family about visions of seeing Ms Bernard on sacred land, including inside a cave.

    Her uncle, Teddy Bernard, said that although the family was informed the official search had been scaled back, they still had hope that search teams, including the traditional landowner, could find her.

    Temperatures have reached as high as 35C, with the witch doctor's vision suggesting Ms Bernard may have sought shelter. "He was having dreams and could see her somewhere - it was a cave they saw her in," said Mr Bernard, a local councillor in Kowanyama.

    "They are called witch doctors. They are traditional doctors for us. "The only problem is it's the monsoon season, the last I heard they couldn't get where he wanted because the water was up."

    Dundee said it was his duty to search the country as he was the traditional owner. He said he was hopeful of beginning the search on horseback as soon as possible and believed the vision related to an area about 80km from Coen.

    Investigations into the disappearance of Allison Bernard, Archer River continues

    The investigation into the disappearance of 23-year-old Kowanyama woman Allison Bernard, missing since February 10, continues with detectives renewing their appeal for public assistance.

    Ms. Bernard was last seen at Archer River on February 10 when it is believed she planned on travelling from Archer River to Kowanyama, although her travel movements have not been able to be confirmed.

    Police coordinated an extensive land and air search which encompassed 800 square kilometres of bushland, in addition to roads and tracks leading away from the search area.

    Police, SES, defence service personnel and locals, using helicopters, fixed wing aircraft, vehicles and quad bikes, failed to locate Ms. Bernard. Officers from the Police Dive Squad also searched several local dams.

    Police continue to appeal to anyone who may have seen Ms Bernard from February 10 onwards, to contact them.

    Police hold fears for the safety and well being of Ms Bernard as she is not from Archer River and would have limited knowledge of the local area.

    Ms. Bernard is an Aboriginal woman, approximately 155cm tall, with a slim build and brown hair.

    Police have released a photograph of Ms Bernard with the consent of family.

    Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.

    Crime Stoppers is a registered charity and community volunteer organisation working in partnership with the Queensland Police Service.

    There are currently nine long-term missing people believed to be in the Far North. The cases of two women, Katie O’Shea and Allison Bernard, are believed to be suspicious.

    Ms O’Shea, 44, was last seen leaving the Atherton Hotel bottleshop with two unidentified men on December 29, 2005, while Ms Bernard, 23, vanished at Archer River in Cape York in 2013.

    Family reveals their heartbreak as mystery remains over what happened to a loving mother who disappeared six years ago while leaving a pub

    A family has revealed their heartbreak over the disappearance of a loving mother who vanished six years ago after visiting a north Queensland pub.

    Allison Bernard, known as Neeridine to her family, was last seen in the remote far north town of Coen. Her aunty Deanne Greenwool was one of the last people to see her.

    'She said, ''Aunty, I'm going to the pub; I will be back''. I said: ''OK, I'll get dinner cooked'',' Ms Greenwool told The Sunday Mail. Ms Greenwool said the 23-year-old then left in the afternoon and walked to the local pub, only a short distance away in the small town.

    Ms Greenwool never saw her again.

    Allison had been visiting her boyfriend in Napranum further north, near Weipa. She then hitched a ride to Coen - where she would touch base with her aunty - before continuing to Kowanyama where she lived.

    'I stayed up all night. Waiting, waiting, waiting. Then it was the next day and I was asking around,' Ms Greenwool said. She revealed Allison had met another relative at the pub who asked her to leave with their group but she refused - later she later left with a local non-indigenous man.

    Ms Greenwool says she suspects it was foul play. Queensland police detectives investigated the mother's disappearance but found no proof she was murdered, according the The Sunday Mail.

    They say Allison went with the man to a quarry near Archer River, where he was staying. He told investigators the pair had sex and then she left while it was still dark. After her disappearance a massive SES and police land search was coordinated - including a traditional land owner on horseback named Dundee - but they found nothing and there have been no developments since.

    Her uncle Teddy Bernard, who works for the Kowanyama Shire Council, said he is still deeply affected by his niece's disappearance.

    'She was loving mother for her two kids, always respected her grandmother... and we miss her. I think my niece being indigenous, police in north Queensland did not prioritise her as a missing person. There was a person of interest that I don't think the police investigated thoroughly. It still kind of haunts me today.' he said.

    A spokesman for the Coroners Court of Queensland told The Sunday Mail: 'The Northern Coroner, Ms Nerida Wilson, has received all investigation material and is reviewing the matter in order to determine whether an inquest is required.'
