Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate a man from Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs who has gone missing near Mullumbimby.

Twenty-two-year-old Zachary Webb and a friend of the same age were on their way from Sydney to Pottsville when they decided to take a dip at a popular waterhole near Huonbrook Road, Huonbrook after driving overnight.

The men fell asleep in the car between around noon and shortly after his friend woke up to find Mr Webb was not in the car.

After searching the area, he went to Mullumbimby Police Station to report Mr Webb missing.

Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, with the assistance of Volunteer Rescue Association, conducted an extensive search of the area but he was not located.

Inspector Greg Jago told ABC radio this morning that the area around the waterhole is very densely wooded and police believe he may have got disoriented. He said the search has recommenced this morning.

Mr Webb is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 175cm tall, of medium build and with sandy-blonde hair. He was last seen wearing a t-shirt, shorts and no shoes.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the man should immediately contact Byron Bay Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
