He has always denied any involvement with his wife's death and his family said in a statement they expected him to be found not guilty.

"No doubt it will be a voluminous briefs with an enormous amount of evidence and there are a number of witnesses that will be called", he said.

Fuller said two additional witnesses have come forward since April.

In September, police dug up the Dawsons' old home in Bayview on Sydney's northern beaches, but did not find any trace of Lynette Dawson's body.

Since May, more than 27 million people have listened to The Teacher's Pet podcast, which is produced by The Australian newspaper.

But his arrest yesterday on the Gold Coast was a sudden development of case that has never been far from the headlines during the 37 years that have passed since Lyn's disappearance.

Police at the former home of Lynette Dawson in Bayview.

She said her client had co-operated with detectives in the past and was happy to comply with any bail conditions imposed.

Two separate inquests previously recommended to the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) that a "known person", now identified as Chris Dawson, be charged with her murder, but the DPP determined insufficient evidence to lay charges.

An application for a warrant was lodged after NSW Police received advice back from the DPP earlier this week.




Cook told reporters detectives were "confident" about their case against Mr Dawson despite not knowing where Lyn's body was.

"We're certainly hoping an interview with this 70-year-old man who's now in custody in Queensland will assist us with the outcome of where the body may be".

"Ideally, in this case we will not give up on trying to identify the whereabouts of Lynette Dawson but, from our perspective, it is not crucial to finalising the matter".

The 70-year-old was arrested by detectives on Wednesday morning at his Queensland home.

He was refused bail and extradition to NSW was granted.

Mr Dawson is due to appear in Paramatta Local Court on Thursday.

Her family, two coroners and the current NSW police commissioner think she was killed. "That makes it very weak", he said.

"We've had a cry, we've cuddled, we're just completely over the moon that something has finally happened", he told The Australian.

The cold case is the subject of popular podcast "The Teacher's Pet", which details a troubled marriage leading up to the disappearance and examines the shortcomings of the police response.

Prior to his wife's disappearance, Chris Dawson and his twin brother Paul had been star players for the Newtown Jets rugby league club.
