Tweed Council to sponsor community events

With disasters like fires, floods and pandemics, still smouldering in our recent memory, Tweed Shire Council wants to know if you have an event that will help the Tweed community reconnect and celebrate after tough times?

 

A police investigation is continuing into the disappearance of a man, believed to have gone missing from his vehicle at Repentance Creek during the January floods.

On Thursday 31 January 2013, police from the Tweed Byron Local Area Command were informed that a Queensland-registered Ford Falcon had been left on a flooded causeway at Byrangery Creek.

Police attended the location and found the vehicle to be unlocked and the contents wet, indicating that recent floodwaters had entered the car.

Investigators believe that the driver of the vehicle may have attempted to cross the causeway and the vehicle’s motor stalled.

Several inquiries have been made to locate the owner of the vehicle, 29-year-old Charl Viviers, in NSW and Queensland without success.

Police do have concerns for his welfare as he requires regular medication and many of his belongings remain in the vehicle.

Charl is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion and slim build.

He also has short dark hair and a beard.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact Byron Bay Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 immediately.
