Re­newed calls to solve mys­tery of the miss­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

PO­LICE have re­newed calls for in­for­ma­tion about two baf­fling lo­cal cases as part of Na­tional Miss­ing Per­sons Week.

Ken­neth Rod­man, 55, had been trav­el­ling around Aus­tralia from the United States with his green kayak and was last seen head­ing to the beach at Mow­bray on De­cem­ber 21 last year and hasn’t been seen since.

De­scribed as Cau­casian in ap­pear­ance with grey hair and beard, ap­prox­i­mately 183cm tall with a slim build, po­lice be­lieve Mr Rod­man may be liv­ing in Far North Queens­land and are urg­ing him to con­tact his fam­ily.

An­other miss­ing per­son is Joanne But­ter­field, who was last seen at her home in Moss­man in the morn­ing of 24 June, 1998.

Joanne was 40 years old and 160cm in height, with a medium build, fair com­plex­ion, red hair, blue eyes and has two tat­toos ’Tweety Bird’ on her right breast and ’Blue­Bird’ on her left shoul­der.

Moss­man Po­lice Of­fi­cerin-Charge Sergeant Ed Lukin urges any­one who is miss­ing to make con­tact with their fam­i­lies.

“Some peo­ple go miss­ing to stay away from their fam­i­lies, to start their lives over, but go­ing miss­ing causes a lot of drama and a lot of stress on the fam­i­lies,” Sergeant Lukin said.

“They should get in touch so the po­lice can then let the fam­ily know they are safe and well and the po­lice in turn will take into con­sid­er­a­tion not let­ting fam­i­lies knows their lo­ca­tion.”
