Clark's family pleads for closure

FAMILY members of a Maryborough man believed to have been murdered are pleading for anyone with any information to come forward to police.

Noel Allan Clark has not been seen since May 25 at the old Maryborough Centrelink office on Ellena Street.

Maryborough's Iaian Cronk, an uncle of the missing man, said his family was desperate for closure and hoped people with information would come forward.

He described his 33-year-old nephew as a “free spirit” and “happy-go-lucky”.

“We just want anyone with information to come forward. We are very worried,” he said.

“It has been a lot of strain and stress on his mother, Bernadette, not knowing where he is.

“She wants her son back but if not she just wants to put him somewhere restful, where she knows where he is.”

Detectives have been investigating Mr Clark's disappearance since he was reported missing in July. They now believe Clark was the victim of a homicide shortly after he was last seen at Centrelink.

North Coast Regional Crime Co-ordinator Acting Superintendant David Drinnen said Mr Clark's bank accounts had not been accessed since his disappearance.

He said the two-month delay in altering authorities to his disappearance had hampered the investigations.

“When you are able to get these investigations when they are hot and fresh, obviously that does make things a lot easier.”

Mr Cronk said family members started to become suspicious when Mr Clark stopped visiting his two young children who live on the Fraser Coast.

“It was very out of character for him to not see his kids,” he said.

Police would also like to hear from anyone who might have seen Mr Clark's blue 1994 Ford Fairmont sedan with Queensland registration 952-LFQ.

He is described as 165cm tall with dark brown hair, medium build and fair complexion.
