Man charged after remarkable cold case arrest

POLICE have charged a 63-year-old Victorian man with murder after one of the most sensational cold case arrests in Australian criminal history.

Detectives arrested the man in Frankston after a two-year cold case investigation into the disappearance of Cheryl Grimmer, 3, from Fairy Meadow beach on the New South Wales South Coast, on January 12, 1970. She has never been found.

The daily Telegraph understands the man, a security guard with a grown family, was 16 when Cheryl vanished from a changing room at the beach.

It is the oldest cold case arrest made in Australia.
