Ms. Larcombe was last seen on December 22 of the same year in Coburg, north of Melbourne.
Suckling denies killing the young woman but has now hired a lawyer to secure her freedom in exchange for the 21-year-old’s body, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Then he hopes to be moved to a retirement home to see the rest of his life.
NSW police said Friday morning that Mourquong investigators were conducting a search near Mildura on the Victoria border after receiving information on where his remains could be found.
The 84-year-old was working as a security guard at the nearby Wyarama train station at the time of the murder.
Police search teams had tracked Mourquong for clues last month, but returned this week with forensic material.
The investigation is expected to continue for several days.
Ms. Larcombe’s father, Ken, said he did not want Suckling to be released from prison.
“We’d rather not find Jodie’s body than get Suckling out,” Larcombe said.
“He’s not going to live in a retirement home while I breathe, he won’t.
“He’s been on his way for 33 damn years and I want him to stay in jail.”
Danny Doherty Comments
Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said renewed efforts to find the remains would use all resources available to ensure the area is thoroughly searched.
“It has been more than three decades since Jodie was murdered and investigators wanted nothing more than to give her remains to her family so they could finally bury them,” said Superintendent Doherty.
“NSW police will always thoroughly investigate new information about the whereabouts of missing and deceased persons, even if convicted.
