Remains identified as Bathurst woman, 50 years after disappearing

The remains of a woman found on a property at Gooloogong in 2009 have at last been identified.

It was confirmed this morning that the remains belonged to Judith Bartlett, who was last seen in the Bathurst area in 1964.

The results come following a 4 year investigation, in which bone and DNA samples were sent abroad for analysis.

The remains were unearthed by a man who was bushwalking in the area in 2009, with a further police search uncovering more skeletal remains.

Detecitve Inspector Denise Godden says Canobolas Police are happy to provide closure to Mrs Bartlett’s surviving family.

Insp Godden has also praised the hard work and persistence of her investigation team, in identifying Bartlett’s body.
