Teacher's Pet podcast Chris Dawson arrested over death of his wife Lyn

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

Journalist Hedley Thomas hosted the true-crime podcast "The Teacher's Pet", which investigated the disappearance of Lynette Dawson, an Australian woman who went missing in 1982.

Dawson, a Newtown rugby league player in the early 1970s, has always been a suspect in the case but denies any involvement in his wife's disappearance.

Mr Dawson has denied killing Mrs Dawson, with whom he has two children.

Police confirmed that on Wednesday, Dawson was taken arrested at his house in Coolum on the Gold Coast.

He insisted he wasn't a flight risk and understood the allegations were serious - but the magistrate ruled in favour of police, and Mr Dawson spent last night at Southport Watchhouse awaiting his extradition to NSW.

She said her client had co-operated with detectives in the past and was happy to comply with any bail conditions imposed.

Just a few days later, he moved his schoolgirl lover into the family home.

The disappearance of Lynette Dawson is the subject of a popular Australian podcast.

"That dig didn't provide any additional information, unfortunately, and, look, from our perspective we would have dearly loved to have found the body of Lynette Dawson not just for the brief of evidence but for her family", Fuller said.

The family of Chris Dawson has released a statement, defending him.

The 33-year-old mother of two girls vanished from the couple's Bayview home in 1982 and has never been seen since.

The same could be said of Head (36.8 and 30.5) who has always been in the sights of Cricket Australia as a player of promise. Indian bowlers, meanwhile, had a tough start to the campaign in Australia .

Mr Dawson held his head in his hands as the magistrate made his decision.

Police are reportedly looking into chartering their own flight to get Mr Dawson back to NSW.

It is understood the airlines are concerned about taking Mr Dawson on board because of the strong interest in the case.

Since Lynette's disappearance, Dawson claimed she had run away to life with a religious cult in a remote area of NSW.

Speaking to Studio 10 on Wednesday, Lynette Dawson's brother Greg Simms revealed his family was "over the moon" about the arrest.

He'll be charged with murder later today.

Homicide Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Scott Cook, also praised the work of Strike Force Scriven investigators who have worked tirelessly to uncover the truth behind the cold case.

"There is clear and uncontested evidence that Lyn Dawson was alive long after she left Chris and their daughters", they said in a statement.

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

Earlier this week, the ODPP provided advice to police, and following further inquiries, NSW Police detectives applied for an arrest warrant before travelling to Queensland.
