being searched using radiation detectors
Superintendent Daryl Ray said they were looking for populated areas north of Perth and strategic locations along the Great Northern Highway. He also informed that radiation detectors are being used to detect gamma Rays Authorities were also using GPS data from the truck to determine the exact route the driver took and where he stopped after leaving the mine on January 10.

It is being speculated that the radioactive capsule may have already got stuck in the tire of another vehicle. So it may be hundreds of km miles away from the area where the authorities are searching for it. Rio Tinto said it had provided a specialist radioactive material handler to package the capsule and deliver it “safely” to the depot. But it was not reported until Wednesday that the radioactive capsule had gone missing.
