Po­lice in search for WA man

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

TAS­MA­NIA Po­lice hold grave con­cerns for a trav­eller last seen in the Cen­tral High­lands in Novem­ber.

West Aus­tralian man Peter Hen­rich, 58, had been mak­ing his way around the state for about 18 months.

But last week his ve­hi­cle van was found aban­doned in a re­mote car park near Poat­ina.

Po­lice be­lieve the last re­ported sight­ing of Mr Hen­rich, who has few rel­a­tives, was in Novem­ber.

Po­lice said there were no signs of any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity.

“In­ves­ti­ga­tions in­di­cate he was likely to have been plan­ning to camp in the area,” a po­lice spokes­woman said.

“Po­lice be­lieve the van ar­rived at the car park in early Novem­ber.”

Po­lice hold con­cerns for the safety and well­be­ing of Mr Hen­rich and would like to hear from him or any­one who has seen him or his ve­hi­cle re­cently. His ve­hi­cle is a WA-reg­is­tered white Suzuki van — N10992. In­for­ma­tion can be pro­vided anony­mously by call­ing Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or on­line at crimestop­per­stas.com.au
