A 27-year-old man has been arrested in the Bermagui area on the south coast of New South Wales over the discovery of a woman’s body in the boot of a car.

“A foot chase ensued, however due to the weather, the darkness and the terrain the male person eluded police,” Detective Superintendent Peter O’Brien said.

Josaia Vosikata and Daniella D’Addario have not been seen since April 20.

On Thursday afternoon NSW Police confirmed a man had been arrested about 4:30pm in relation to the discovery, but would not confirm the man’s identity.

The man has been taken to Batemans Bay Police Station.

Ms D’Addario and Mr Vosikata were last seen on Sunday evening and were believed to be in the Bermagui area.

Earlier this week, ACT police said they had concerns for their welfare, but no evidence to suggest foul play.

When the couple first went missing police said they were believed to be travelling in a silver to light blue Hyundai Getz.
