·1-min read

Northern Territory Police “hold concerns” for two tourists missing in outback Australia for four days.

Yasemin Aslaner, 49 and Elias Awad, 22, who have been driving in remote Central Australia, haven’t made contact with friends or family since Monday.

That was the same day the pair were last spoken to by police at the Northern Territory’s border with South Australia.

The interstate travellers are believed to be driving in a gold coloured Nissan X-trail with Victorian registration plate 1MG4BQ.

Police have issued an urgent alert amid fears for their safety. It’s unclear if the pair have any food or water with them, or whether they have experience travelling in remote areas.
