- Photo emerges of missing backpacker
- Celine Cremer not seen since June 16
- Her car was abandoned in Tasmania
A haunting last photo has emerged of a Belgian backpacker who disappeared more than two weeks ago.
Tasmanian police say they hold ‘grave concerns’ for Celine Cremer, whose car was found abandoned on Tuesday at the entrance to the Philosopher Falls Track, a remote walking trail in the top north west corner of the island state.
A photo, posted to Facebook on February 22, shows a playful and smiling Ms Cremer standing at wilderness lookout using her hands to make ‘devil’s horns’ on her head.
The photo is captioned ‘Un petit diable en Tasmanie’ (A little devil in Tasmania).
Ms Cremer was reported missing on Monday but her family and friends said the last contact they had from her was on June 12.

The family have made a desperate plea for help finding Ms Cremer, who had previously said she planned to be on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry to Victoria on June 21.
‘If you have any information on my sister, please contact me directly or my mum Ariane,’ Celine’s sister Amelie wrote on Facebook.
‘Please share this post widely and help us find her.’ ️
Celine’s mother has confirmed the registration for the abandoned white Honda CRV, which was found roughly 500 metres up an unpaved road, was the backpacker’s vehicle.
Police have urged anyone who has been in the Philosopher Falls car park since June 12 to call them.

Search and rescue crews have been using drones to scour the area.
The falls are about 10km from the town of Waratah and the walking track only takes about 45 minutes.
Night-time temperatures in the area have been dropping to near freezing.
Police believe when Ms Cremer left Hobart earlier in June she planned to travel to Tasmania’s west coast.
