"The divers are trying to retrieve a personal item belonging to the deceased person," Det. Insp. Isherwood said.

However, he would not confirm what item was being searched for.

Detectives last week said Mrs Qualischefski's death was not being treated as suspicious, but are preparing a report for the coroner.

An appeal for information from the public remains active, and anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
