On March 20 last year, Mr Hill and Ms Clay, aged in their 70s, vanished in Victoria’s high country.

The last contact they had with the outside world was through Mr Hill’s high-frequency radio as they set up camp in the Wonnangatta Valley, a secluded pocket of the Victorian Alpine National Park without mobile phone reception.
