Chris Dawson: Arrest in podcast-highlighted Australian mystery

An application for bail was refused by Queensland magistrate Dennis Kinsella and Dawson was taken into custody of NSW detectives.

NSW detectives will apply for Dawson's extradition back to NSW at his first court appearance.

It was revealed that Chris Dawson went "quietly" with police following his arrest this morning, and that no new evidence was found during the September dig at the Bayview property.

Lyn Dawson disappeared without a trace 36 years ago.

Just before 8am on Wednesday, Mr Dawson was arrested by Queensland Police detectives in the presence of Strike Force Scriven investigators.

Mr Dawson, 70, was arrested at Biggera Waters by detectives from Queensland Police Service's Homicide Squad.

"I thank the public and the media for the partnership in solving this matter", said New South Wales Police Commissioner Mick Fuller.

"There were predominantly statements from witnesses that helped us to pieces of the puzzle is together".

"No doubt it will be a voluminous brief with an enormous amount of evidence and obviously there will be a number of witnesses that will be called".

Dawson continues to maintain his innocence.

Mr Dawson told Lynette's family that she needed time away, and he did not report her missing to police for nearly six weeks.

Fuller said despite recent investigations failing to locate Lyn's body, he believed finding her remains was "not crucial" to the case.

In recent months it has captivated the world after The Australian's investigative podcast series The Teacher's Pet, for which reporter Hedley Thomas and producer Slade Gibson won the Gold Walkley, Australian journalism's highest honour.

Police at the former home of Lynette Dawson in Bayview. "It is my understanding that there were two additional statements were the byproduct of the media and the work that the media has done, but essentially the case rests on the work of Dan Pool and the Unsolved Homicide Squad".

Police allege Mr Dawson was in the process of divorce from his wife and he was having an "illicit affair". He has said that she abandoned the family for a religious group.

"We would like to have found the body of Lynette Dawson, not just for the evidence but for the family, and we certainly will not give up on the search", he said.

Australian authorities are expected to charge Chris Dawson, 70, with the murder of his former wife Lynette, who disappeared nearly 40 years ago.

The former Newtown Jets rugby league player, who is at the centre of the popular Teacher's Pet podcast, appeared in Southport Magistrates Court today with his head bowed, wearing a t-shirt, shorts and bare feet.
