POLICE expect preliminary searches in the fire-ravaged area of the Tasman Peninsula to be completed by the end of today.
So far no bodies have been found and as at yesterday morning, about 65 personnel had conducted preliminary screening searches of 557 residential properties.
Of those, 110 property sites, some containing more than one dwelling or building, were destroyed or damaged.
Acting Deputy Police Commissioner Donna Adams said that once the preliminary searches were complete, a more comprehensive search would be undertaken.
Twenty Victorian police will arrive in Hobart this morning to assist with the searches.
She said police continued to hold concerns for about 100 people who had not made contact with friends or family.
Many were tourists who had probably continued on their journey.
She said it was important for everyone who was in the area at the time of the fire to register with the National Registration and Inquiry Service operated by the Red Cross on 1800 727 077.
