  • Tamra McBeath-Riley and Claire Hockridge were reported missing after setting out for a hike in central Australia

McBeath-Riley found water about 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) north of the vehicle.

The BBC and ABC Australia report Tamra McBeath-Riley, 52, set out on November 19 with her partner, 46-year-old Claire Hockridge, their friend, Phu Tran, 40, and McBeath-Riley's Staffordshire terrier, Raya, for a drive in the Alice Springs part of the Northern Territory when their vehicle got stuck in a riverbed. Uncommon tire tracks noticed by a cattle station employee, in addition to a word left contained in the automobile, supplied a breakthrough for searchers.

McBeath-Riley said she and her companions found a waterhole.

Rescuers are continuing to search for her partner Claire Hockridge and friend Phu Tran - who were last seen on November 19th.

"As a result of that information, we were able to locate the vehicle and then from there they have followed some of the other tracks and have located her", Ms Vicary said.

Ms McBeath said that she had to drink from a cow waterhole to increase her chances of survival.

"It looks like she was suffering from dehydration, heat stroke, and some gastrointestinal complaints - but in relatively good spirits considering the ordeal she's been through", he said.

After almost two weeks, Ms McBeath-Riley was found on Sunday after police discovered the trio's vehicle which had become bogged in a river bed. Mr Tran and Ms Hockridge planned to walk towards the highway.

The three men left Alice Springs for a vehicle afternoon on November 19 and their auto got stuck in a river bed southwest of the city.

Ms Vicary said there was a note left on the vehicle dated 21 November.

The group split up to get help.

Ms McBeath-Riley made a decision to stay there with her Staffordshire terrier, for fear the dog would not survive a longer trek. "There's sandy dunes, there's hard clay, there's areas of dense trees, but there are also rocks and ranges in the area", Ms Vicary said. They expected to find the Stuart Highway, about 22 miles away.
