[Sydney Kyodo]In Western Australia, a pea-sized capsule containing radioactive material disappeared from a running truck, and there was a commotion about 1,400 kilometers of roads being searched. Authorities found the capsule on the side of a road about 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of Newman, Newman, on Wednesday. It was the first discovery in a week since the loss was reported to the authorities.

“It’s like finding a needle in a haystack,” state government emergency minister Dawson told a news conference.

Officials were notified of the loss on Friday, according to public broadcaster ABC. On the 27th, the state government called on residents to be careful not to come near it, as there is a risk of getting burned if they touch it.
