Police searching for clues in missing Rockhampton duo case

POLICE and forensic scenes of crime officers are searching for clues at a Parkhurst caravan park after a breakthrough in the missing persons case of Robert Martinez and Chantal Barnett.

This morning CIB acting-boss Detective Sergeant Nick Williams says police executed the search warrant last night and are expected to be at the scene today and tomorrow.

Although he couldn't go into too much detail, Det Sgt Williams says a Rockhampton Magistrate issued the warrant yesterday after information from the public.
