A woman who disappeared in the Australian outback a week ago may still be alive, police say.
Angie Fuller, 30, from Alice Springs, was last seen on Tanami Road, 15km west of the Stuart Highway intersection in the Northern Territory on Monday night.
She had been with her boyfriend at the time and was last seen running into the bushland.
Despite extensive searches across the outback, including the use of helicopters and drones, no trace of Ms Fuller has been found.
NT Police Acting Superintendent Rob Engels said detectives have not lost hope.
Angie Fuller from Alice Springs hasn’t been seen since Monday and police say her family hold concerns for her welfare
‘We believe Ms Fuller is alive. There are certainly water sources in the area that she can access,’ he told the ABC.
‘Our experts to date tell us it is survivable at this time.’
Police have so far searched an area stretching 240-square-kilometres.
Ms Fuller’s boyfriend is assisting police with inquiries, Superintendent Engels said, confirming he was the last to see her.
‘We believe she and her boyfriend had run off into the bush where she was last seen, and we are hoping she has gone to ground in there and is accessing water and giving us an opportunity that we will find her,’ he said.
The boyfriend of missing woman Angie Fuller is seen clashing with police as they search his car
Police hoping Ms Fuller is alive comes after a video filmed by her boyfriend in the days after her disappearance surfaced.
In the clip the neck-tattooed man, who describes himself as a ‘sovereign citizen’, is heard clashing with a police officer who had asked to search his car.
‘My car was randomly searched without my permission, without me standing there,’ the man says in the video.
‘The only reason I searched your car is we’ve got a missing person and you’re in the area that we’re conducting a search,’ the officer responds.
Police have utilised search helicopters and a drone to try track down Ms Fuller who vanished in the vast bushland in the Northern Territory
‘I’m just trying to figure out why you’re here.’
The man then tells the officer: ‘I have every right to be part of the search.
‘Why am I here? You know why I’m here. The missing person is my girlfriend.’
The police officer then calmly tells the man he is investigating whether the car is related to Ms Fuller’s disappearance.
NT Police have described Ms Fuller as being of Asian appearance, around 165cm tall, with long black hair that has purple streaks throughout.
Anyone who was travelling along the Tanami Road, between 10pm on January 9 and 9am the following day are urged to contact police.
Those with information on Ms Fuller’s whereabouts is urged to contact police on 131 444 or via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
