Victoria, Crime: Police probe mobile phone data in search for missing mother Samantha Murphy

Police investigating the disappearance of missing mum Samantha Murphy will use mobile phone tower data to identify the movements of people in the area at the time.

Detectives will scour data from the Ballarat area in Victoria’s Central Highlands where the mother-of-three was last seen on the morning of February 4.

It is understood police will use the data to find out who was in the area before probing their backgrounds for potential new leads into the missing persons case.

Officers previously used the mobile data of Ms Murphy’s phone which had reportedly helped police narrow down their search last month, but not anyone else’s.

More to come.
