Police search bush for missing woman
POLICE and SES crews are continuing to scour bushland north of Sydney for the body of a Chinese woman who was allegedly murdered by a male housemate.
Detectives believe Campsie woman Qi Yu, 28, was transported in her car to the area near Hornsby, Berowra, Cowan and Mount Kuring-Gai on the night she went missing nearly two weeks ago.
Ms Yu's housemate, 19-year-old Shuo Dong, was last week arrested and charged with murder after being released from hospital.
Dozens of police and SES officers search bushland at Berowra on Wednesday for any sign of Ms Yu's body.
The operation has so far drawn involved local police, the rescue squad, mounted officers and the riot squad.
Ms Yu's white Toyota Corolla was dumped in Burwood in the city's west following her disappearance.
Police previously urged bushwalkers in the area to keep an eye out for evidence.
Ms Yu's family travelled to Sydney but are hesitant to make any public comment.
Dong will next appear in Burwood Local Court on July 9.
