A few moments later she heard him looking for her. In the glow of a torch he carried, she could see his dog sniffing around. The man came so close to her at times she was terrified he would hear the thumping of her heart. She didn’t know how long he looked, but she heard vehicles coming and going. She was unable to tell if he had driven off or not. Helen and Pilton listened in silence as she relayed her ordeal, the bar clock indicating the lateness of the hour. Joanne told them that finally, after what seemed like an eternity, she decided to take a chance on raising the alarm when she heard a juggernaut coming down the highway.
He never forgot his dogs, no matter how much grog he drank or who stopped by. Joe didn’t ask any questions either, but he shot Ena a look as he climbed into the police truck. Something big was going on, no doubt about that. Gwen picked up Gerard Driver next. He was a pretty good tracker, too. He got in the back with Ronald.

He was driving a white ute—some kind of four-wheel drive—she guessed, with a canvas cover over the back. He spoke with an Australian accent. Dawn was breaking as she tried to recall other details of the vehicle. Suddenly, one of the police officers ran into the back room where she was relaying her story.
