A body has been found in the search for a woman lost for more than two weeks in Australia's arid outback, police said on Wednesday (Dec 4) after two of her friends were rescued.

Ms Hockridge, 46, was in a group of three people who became stranded in the central Australian outback a fortnight ago.

Ms Hockridge had been travelling with two others when their auto got stuck in a riverbed on 19 November.

After almost two weeks, Ms McBeath-Riley was found on Sunday after police discovered the trio's vehicle which had become bogged in the Hugh River.

A supplied undated combined image shows Phu Tran and Claire Hockridge who have been missing in a remote area south of Alice Springs.

They had stayed by the auto for around three days in an unsuccessful attempt to free it, before splitting up to find help.

Tran was found three days after his friend Tamra McBeath-Riley was found about 1.5 km (0.9 miles) from the vehicle they had been travelling in through Australia's remote north. They carried about six litres of water with them.

Zuckerberg doubles down on false claims in political advertising policy
In an interview released Monday, he said in a democracy people should be able to see for themselves what politicians are saying. However, he confirmed that as of now, he doesn't have any plans to take down political ads or review his policy.

Tran was found on Tuesday in the area of the Palmer Valley by pastoralist Ted Fogarty. They spotted Ms McBeath-Riley on Sunday, about 1.5km (0.9 miles) away from the auto.

Superintendent Pauline Vicary said they were concerned this morning that Ms Hockridge had run out of water, but that there were still hopes she had managed to survive.

The discovery of Mr Tran had narrowed the rugged area being looking at by searchers in helicopters, Ms Vicary said earlier.

After three days staying put and waiting for a rescue, the group feared supplies were dwindling and two of them made a decision to walk along a property fence in the hope of finding help.

Police say formal identification of the body is yet to be conducted and a report in being prepared for the Coroner.

"Police located the body, which is believed to be that Claire Hockridge during search efforts", Northern Territory police said in an emailed statement.
