The ground search for the prospector who went missing in the Northern Goldfields will continue this week.
Michael Keith Graham, 46, has been missing for seven days now and police are still scouring the area in the hope of finding him.
Fire and Emergency Services Authority District Officer Colin Brown said about 60 people were involved in the search for Mr Graham over the weekend.
“We’ve been starting about 6am every day, conducting what we call grid searches from where the person was camping,” he said.
“Initially we were moving in predominantly a westerly direction but we are now starting to move toward the south.“We’ve had three large teams out, one being the mounted police, two being a composite of State Emergency Services personnel interspaced with shire workers and other locals.”
