The 56-year-old’s ambulance was also allegedly stolen on Thursday morning, and police have charged a 36-year-old Fregon man with theft of a motor vehicle and driving while unlicensed. Forensic investigators will leave Adelaide on Sunday morning to examine the scene, which is under police guard.A ground and air search on both Thursday and Friday failed to find the mother of two, with her disappearance declared a major crime. Ms Woodford normally drove the local ambulance, and its GPS data shows it left Fregon shortly after midnight on Thursday and travelled to Mimili. In the early hours of Thursday morning, the ambulance travelled via Indulkana to Marla, arriving around daybreak. Police intercepted the ambulance in Coober Pedy at 10.30am and two men and a woman inside were interviewed. h/t sbs

On Friday, Superintendent Des Bray said police had charged the 36-year-old Fregon man, but he had given police a version of events “that we are not happy with.”
