Missing woman found dead in Victoria with her dog on her side

The body of a missing elderly woman has been found next to a burnt-out car, along with her dog who stayed by the Victorian’s side.
Police said a resident found the body, believed to be that of missing 84-year-old Rosie McLean, beside a burnt-out car about 3pm yesterday in Wickliffe yesterday.
“Emergency services were called to a property on Chatsworth-Wickcliffe Road, near Karmala Lane,” police said in a statement.

“While the body is yet to be formally identified, police believe it to be that of missing Timboon woman, Rosie.
“Rosie’s Maltese Shih Tzu was found safe and well nearby.”
Police performed an extensive search of the Southern Grampians after Ms McLean vanished from Timboon, more than 200 kilometres south-west of Melbourne, last Thursday.
The 84-year-old’s daughter Susan McLean Graham shared the devastating news overnight that her mum had been found, but they were too late.
“Mum has been found this afternoon, unfortunately not in time,” Ms McLean Graham posted on Facebook.
“Bindi (her dog) stayed with mum until they were found and we take some comfort in that knowledge.
“Bindi will be reunited with her mate Dantai and our family in the morning.”
The 84-year-old was last seen on June 10, with police and her family undertaking a significant search of the local area since that time.
McLean Graham thanked the people who had endeavoured to find her mother during the 11-day search.
“We are truly grateful that you all cared for our mum and Bindi,” she said.
“We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
McLean was last seen at her local hairdresser, with police tracking her last recorded mobile phone ping at Dunkeld at 4pm on the day she went missing, about 140 kilometres from her home.
“Police and family hold serious concerns for her welfare due to the length of time she has been missing and that she left without medication she requires,” a police statement read earlier.
Police said the exact circumstances surrounding the death are yet to be determined and the investigation remains ongoing.
