Dawson to face murder charge back in NSW

Chris Dawson was arrested in the 1982 disappearance of his wife Lynette Dawson

His lawyer made an application for bail, which was opposed by police.

"We are confident with the case", Supt Scott Cook told reporters on Wednesday.

One 16-year-old girl moved in to the family home within days of Mrs Dawson's disappearance.

Police allege Mr Dawson was in the process of divorce from his wife and he was having an "illicit affair".

An application for bail was refused by Queensland magistrate Dennis Kinsella and Dawson was taken into custody of NSW detectives. He held his head in his hands while the allegations against him were read out.

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

A number of airlines said they were reluctant to carry Mr Dawson due to his high profile and the potential of it becoming a security risk.

It has not been determined whether they will fly out of the Brisbane or Gold Coast airport.

Addressing the media this morning, NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said additional evidence uncovered in the investigation has been key to the arrest.

Commissioner Fuller said police have not given up on finding her remains.

'What is important to me was justice for Lynette Dawson and her family, and today is an important step forward in that, ' he added.

Lyn's niece, Renee Simms, also appeared on Studio 10 and thanked journalist Hedley Thomas for bringing her aunt's case back into the spotlight more than 30 years after her disappearance.

"We are disappointed at the decision of the DPP as there is clear and uncontested evidence that Lyn Dawson was alive long after she left Chris and his daughters", brother Peter Dawson said, according to the Seven Network.

"We have no doubt whatsoever that Chris will be found not guilty as he is innocent".

"A team of dedicated detectives has been investigating this case over the past three years", Det Supt Cook said.

"They were predominantly statements from witnesses that helped us to tie pieces of the puzzle together", he said.

But his arrest yesterday on the Gold Coast was a sudden development of case that has never been far from the headlines during the 37 years that have passed since Lyn's disappearance.

"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.

Detectives from the NSW homicide squad began reinvestigating her suspected murder in 2015 and sent a brief of evidence to the Director of Public Prosecutions in April this year.

"Lynette Dawson's family has been advised of today's arrest and have requested privacy at this time".
