Still no an­swers

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS - — Vic­to­ria Nugent, The Townsville Bul­letin

IT’S been eight years since for­mer War­wick po­lice of­fi­cer Mick Isles dis­ap­peared into North Queens­land bush­land without a trace and his fam­ily are still des­per­ately search­ing for an­swers.

Yes­ter­day, the se­nior sergeant’s wife Fiona Isles at­tended Na­tional Po­lice Re­mem­brance Day in Townsville for the first time.

Mrs Isles said she and son Steven Isles had been fol­low­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties for years, hop­ing to “find some­thing, any­thing”.

“It’s one thing to have a per­son die of what­ever cause and have clo­sure. It’s an­other thing never know­ing,” she said.

“Ev­ery time you hear on the ra­dio hu­man re­mains have been found ... you hold your breath won­der­ing be­cause I want some­thing to be found.

“I know it’s not go­ing to be good, after all this time it can’t be but I want some­thing to be found so we can at least lay him to rest with the dig­nity he de­serves.”

The of­fi­cer in charge of the Ayr po­lice sta­tion at the time, Snr Sgt Isles left home on Septem­ber 23, 2009, ap­par­ently to drive to a train­ing course in Townsville but never ar­rived.
