Detectives have successfully applied to extradite a 44-year-old Shepparton man to Queensland in relation to the suspicious disappearance of 35-year-old Shae Francis.
Operation Romeo Vine was established by officers from Hervey Bay and the Homicide Investigation Unit after Ms Francis was reported missing in March.
The man appeared in Bendigo Court this morning and after the extradition was approved, was remanded in custody.
He will be flown to Queensland tomorrow where he is then expected to be charged and scheduled to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
The man had earlier been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, interference with a corpse and stealing.
Investigators are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Shae or her disappearance to contact police.
