Chris Dawson ARRESTED Over Cold Case Murder Of Lyn Dawson

Chris Dawson was arrested in the 1982 disappearance of his wife Lynette Dawson.

'That information enabled New South Wales Police to get an arrest warrant for a 70-year-old man now living in Queensland, ' Fuller said.

The podcast on the case, Teacher's Pet, has had millions of downloads and recently won The Australian's Hedley Thomas and Slade Gibson a Gold Walkley.

Lyn Dawson was 33 years old when she vanished from her home in Sydney's northern beaches in January 1982, leaving behind two daughters.

Chris Dawson, has always been a suspect in the case but the former Newtown Jets rugby league player denies any involvement in her disappearance.

This consisted of primarily witness statements, NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said.

Mr Dawson told Lynette's family that she needed time away, and he did not report her missing to police for nearly six weeks.

He's been refused bail and will appear at Central Local Court today.

Detective Superintendent Scott Cook said Mr Dawson is not expected to be questioned by police today.

Meanwhile, Chris Dawson's family has released a statement proclaiming his innocence.

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.

Mr Kinsella described the police case as "circumstantial" given his wife's body has never been found and the court heard Mr Dawson had "cooperated" with investigators.

"We have solved homicides before without identifying the body", he said.

Police allege Mr Dawson was in the process of divorce from his wife and he was having an "illicit affair".

New South Wales Police's Strike Force Scriven was established in 2015 to reinvestigate the case.

His family said they were "disappointed" at the decision of the DPP.

It has highlighted the bungled handling of Mrs Dawson's case by police in the early years after her disappearance, prompting a recent apology from the state's police commissioner.

Cook said the two additional witnesses interviewed as a result of the podcast were "not crucial, but they are corroborative".

Police, who have conducted several digs at the Dawson's Bayview home in Sydney to find Lynette's body, said they have amassed "an enormous amount of evidence".

"We have no doubt whatsoever that Chris will be found not guilty as he is innocent".

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