Shoe Found In Search For Missing Teen

BRISBANE, Australia, Aug. 17 (UPI) — Australian authorities said they found a shoe that may belong to teenager Daniel Morcombe, who disappeared in 2003 while waiting for a bus.

A search for the boy’s remains has been under way north of Brisbane for several days, Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Wednesday.

Authorities have narrowed the search area to a muddy plot of land 42 feet by 20 feet in a state forest.

The shoe was found within the primary search area, police said.

It will undergo scientific testing that could take several weeks.

Daniel Morcombe was 13-years-old when he went missing.

Authorities have charged Brett Peter Cowan, 41, a father of three, with the teenager’s murder.
