Luke’s Miracle Survival

Shambrook family

Taking children camping is one of the great Aussie adventures many families enjoy.  There is a sense of freedom children get to experience in the 'great outdoors', but what happens when things don't go to plan?  How would you cope if your child vanished without a trace?

Over Easter holiday 2015, the news media across Australia reported that an 11 year old boy with autism spectrum disorder had gone missing while camping with his family at Lake Eildon National Park in Victoria. Several days went by and still Luke Shambrook was nowhere to be found.
