On August 17, 1980, Lindy and Michael Chamberlain took their infant daughter, Azaria Chantel Loren Chamberlain, only 10 weeks old, camping at Ayers Rock. During the night the child disappeared; her body was never found. The Chamberlains believed that a wild dingo had taken their baby, but police would not accept their story, and had them arrested. It would take more than three decades for the truth to completely emerge.
More than three decades after the disappearance of nine-week-old Azaria Chamberlain in the Australian desert, a coroner has ruled that her death was caused by a dingo, as her parents had contended all along.
