Murder suspect seen in Coffs



HAVE you seen this man?

Police believe murder suspect Malcolm John Naden, 32, was last seen in Coffs Harbour six weeks ago.

The State Government is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the Dubbo man.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Naden in relation to the 2005 murder of mother-of-two Kristy Scholes.

Her body was found in a West Dubbo house on June 23, 2005.

Police have a second arrest warrant for Naden over a 2004 offence of indecently assaulting a child.

The reward comes on the two-year anniversary of the disappearance of Dubbo mum Lateesha Nolan.

Ms Nolan, then 24, was last seen on January 4, 2005, at her grandparents' place in West Dubbo.

She had left her four young children there with the promise to return shortly, but she hasn't been seen since.

Police believe she may have met with foul play, and that Naden might have important information about her disappearance.

Naden is described as being Aboriginal in appearance, 177cm tall, 85kg, with a medium build and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Naden's whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Anyone who sees him should not approach him, but phone 000 immediately.
