Here's The Latest Update On The Lyn Dawson House Dig That's Currently Underway ABC

Yesterday, NSW Police announced that they have begun a new forensic search at the former Bayview home of missing woman Lyn Dawson.

"As part of their ongoing commitment to providing answers to her family, Strike Force Scriven detectives have commenced a forensic search at Mrs Dawson's former home at Bayview," a police statement said.

Lynette Dawson, a 33-year-old mother of two girls, was last seen in January 1982.

In 2015, detectives from the Homicide Squad's Unsolved Homicide Unit established Strike Force Scriven to re-investigate the circumstances surrounding the 1982 disappearance and suspected murder of the northern beaches wife and mother.

The case has been the subject of a highly popular podcast, Teacher's Pet, by The Australian.

Now, the podcast has prompted police to again search the property for further evidence.

This morning, Channel Nine reporter Sarah Stewart, who is currently outside the Bayview home, called in to 2DayFM Breakfast's Grant and Ed to give them an update on the search.

Sarah explained that this search is different to the other searches that police had done in the past because this time around, they have the financial backing to support them.

"People will be saying, 'well, why didn't they keep searching [back] then?' The problem is that they had budget restraints, can you believe it?!

"So they didn't go any further, but now they're saying that they're leaving no stone unturned. 

"They're saying they've got all of this new wiz-bang technology.

"It's a massive operation and its really complex because you can imagine, 36 years... but the layout of the property has changed as well, there's been new owners over the last couple of years and they've done extensions to this property, so some of the areas that they need to search are now under new rooms and concrete slabs."

Listen to the full interview below where Sarah also explained how the police decided to recommence the search for Lyn Dawson and any evidence relating to her disappearance:
