Missing father of five could be on the Northern Rivers

A FATHER of five who went missing from Colo Heights in 2012 could be on the Northern Rivers, police have said.

In a statement released yesterday, NSW Police said Quinn Martin's disappearance was out of character and detectives investigating the case believe there is a possibility he may have "met with foul play."

Mr Martin, 35, was last seen working at the rear of a property on Putty Road, Colo Heights, north east of Sydney, at about 10.30pm on Friday December 7, 2012.

His partner and two of his five children were at the farm house, however Mr Martin never returned and has not been seen since.

Officers from the Hawkesbury Local Area Command have been searching for Mr Martin since his disappearance, however the man's whereabouts has remained a mystery.

Strike Force Vowel was established to continue the search and investigations of Mr Martin's disappearance.

With the assistance of Mr Martin's partner, Jana, Strike Force Vowel detectives have reappealed for public assistance to help locate him.

Quinn Martin was well-known in the South Windsor area, having lived there for 15 years and it is likely someone in the area may have seen him since his disappearance.

It's believed Quinn could have travelled to a number of areas, including the Far North Coast of NSW, Coffs Harbour, Corindi, Grafton, Maroochydore, or Hervey Bay.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 180-190cm tall, of solid build, with short blond hair and blue eyes.

Quinn was last seen wearing light-grey cargo shorts, work boots and a flannelette shirt.

Police are urging anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/ Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
