ONE MORE FOUND, ONE STILL MISSING IN AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK

A second person missing in the punishing Australian outback for almost two weeks has been found, but a search was continuing on Tuesday for the pair's missing friend.

Northern Territory Police said Phu Tran, 40, was found by a farmer on a livestock station south of Alice Springs, and had been taken to a hospital to be treated for exposure.

Superintendent Pauline Vicary said Mr Phu told the farmer he had survived after finding some water.

He and two friends had been missing since November 19, when their vehicle became bogged in a riverbed.

Tamra McBeath-Riley, 52, was found late on Sunday near a waterhole.

Police said the search was continuing for the third member of the party, 46-year-old Claire Hockridge.
