The Australia police, after finding the missing British teen, have taken him to a hospital as a precautionary measure

Missing London teenager, Sam Woodhead, who had been untraceable in the Australia outback in Queensland since Tuesday, has been found alive by the Longreach police in a slightly sunburned condition. But the police spokesman has remarked that the missing British teenager was detected in a perfectly hydrated state. The discovery of the missing British backpacker has delighted his kith and kin, who have expressed their gratitude to all those Australians, who had volunteered to find Sam Woodhead.

The 18-year-old London backpacker had vanished from a cattle station in Queensland on Tuesday when he went for a jog. The British backpacker’s father, Peter Woodhead, has voiced to Sky News that Sam’s finding is a source of real excitement and happiness for his family as the last few days have been rather nightmarish. The father claimed that Sam Woodhead is being flown to a Longreach hospital chiefly for precautionary reasons. The father thanked all those Longreach Australians, who had volunteered to trace his son in extremely hostile surroundings.

Temperatures in Longreach have hovered around 37 C this week. Longreach authorities and police personnel initiated a search for Sam Woodhead by land and air, amid fears that Sam Woodhead may have become unconscious or dehydrated in the scorching, remote Australia outback. The missing London backpacker’s mother requested the Longreach police to broaden their search for Sam, who is an experienced long-distance runner. The mother thought that Sam could have run some miles away from his accommodation.

His sister, Rebecca Woodhead, expressed her glee on Facebook after being informed that her brother had been found in the Australia outback. She has regularly been updating on Facebook the developments regarding the missing British backpacker.

The missing London teenager, after being found, was returned to his accommodation at the central Queensland cattle station, where he remained to undergo a medical examination, after which he was sent to the Longreach hospital.
