UPDATE: Appeal for information of man last seen in 1953 case

An historic missing person’s case has been resolved following a public appeal last month.

On Wednesday 25 October 2023, NSW Police issued a public appeal in relation to a 24-year-old man who was last seen at Warwick Farm in 1953.

The man was reported missing to officers at Blacktown Police Area Command earlier this year, with police conducting inquiries to confirm his whereabouts.

Following a public appeal, a member of the public contacted police.

Inquiries have subsequently established that the man changed his identity and died from natural causes in 1980 at Moree.

Police would like to thank the public and media for their assistance.
