Search out of Broken Hill

Polair27 (C208 Grand Caravan) has been conducting a search 100 miles north of YBHI for several hours - now appears to be returning to YBHI. Anyone heard of an aircraft missing in that area?

No aircraft
There's a "loving Grandmother of 13" who lives/lived 100km out of Broken Hill but hasn't been seen or heard from since December 30.
Family has paid for aerial searches, there is a GoFundMe page, and now the NSWPOL are involved.

Nothing on her phone since December 30 either so looks pretty suss.
....or maybe she forgot her charger.
