Police in New South Wales have begun a new forensic search in the former Bayview house of the late Lynette Dawson.

The Strike Force Scriven detectives will hold a press conference at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday to provide an update of the investigation.

"As part of their continued commitment to provide answers to their family, Strike Force Scriven detectives have begun a forensic search of Mrs. Dawson's former home in Bayview," a police statement said.

In 2015, detectives from the Unsolved Homicide Unit of the Homicide Brigade established Strike Force Scriven to re-investigate the circumstances surrounding the 1982 disappearance and the alleged murder of the wife and mother of the northern beaches.

The case has been the subject of a very popular podcast, Teacher & # 39; s Pet, by The Australian.

Lynette Dawson, a mother of two 33-year-old girls, was last seen in January 1982.

Mrs. Dawson spoke with her mother on the night of January 8, 1982, while at home in the suburb of Bayview, Sydney, with her husband, Christopher Dawson.

She made plans to have lunch with her mother the next day in Northbridge Baths, but they did not show up.

She was reported missing on February 18, 1982 by her husband.

After two police investigations, in 2001 and 2003, no one was convicted of his alleged murder.

However, her husband, a former professional rugby league player, has long been a suspect.

Chris Dawson, who played for the Newtown Jets, has consistently denied any involvement in the disappearance of his wife.
