According to a report from Channel 9, investigators concentrated on a carpet search in the Darebin Creek Reserve in Ivanhoe West, looking for clues in the bushes and creeks.
Joong Seong Tan, a 35-year-old Doncaster man, was detained at around 6.15 pm on Wednesday. The police spoke to him again today.
Mr. Tan was previously arrested by the police in the afternoon of last Sunday (7th) and was released after 24 hours of interrogation without charges.
He earlier told the police that the last time he saw Zhang Ju was at 2:1 pm on February 5, at Ms. Zhang's home on Winchester Avenue in Epping District. At that time, the 30-year-old mother said she was going for a walk.
Since then, Ms. Zhang has never appeared again.She was wearing pink pajamas and no shoes when she disappeared.
The police said that the disappearance was “extremely unreasonable” because Ms. Zhang would not leave her eight-year-old son alone.
Ms. Zhang’s son is currently taken care of by her ex-husband’s family.
Ms. Zhang did not bring any personal belongings when she disappeared, and her mobile phone was also lost.The last time the phone was turned on was on the street where her home was.The police publicly appealed to anyone who found the phone to contact the police.
The police also urged residents of Ivanhoe West, Epping and Doncaster to check whether there were any suspicious images taken by surveillance video on the afternoon when Ms. Zhang disappeared.
Investigators also want to talk to anyone who witnessed "suspicious activity" near the Darebin Creek Reserve in Ivanhoe West between February 2 and 1.
The police are looking for a black 2008 Mazda CX9 station wagon (registered number WKE 850) or white Toyota Land Cruiser surveillance video.
