Man missing more than two weeks

Tweed Byron police are asking the public for help finding a man reported missing for more than two weeks.

One man has been charged but police are searching for a second man after an elderly woman had her handbag snatched at Banora Point recently.

Police said the 78-year-old woman had returned to her Banora Point home after being at a bank at a Tweed Heads shopping centre on Friday, 24 October.

As she was sitting in her garage, a man got in and sat in the passenger’s seat of her car.

Police allege the man spoke briefly with the woman before taking her handbag and getting out of the car.

He then got in another car that was waiting out the front.

The woman contacted police who conducted patrols of the area but they were unable to locate the car.

Following inquiries, however, police arrested a 40-year-old man at a caravan park in Hastings Point last Thursday and charged him with aggravated entering a dwelling with intent, stealing from a dwelling and possessing a prohibited drug.

Meanwhile, police are still searching for the second person involved in the incident and have appealed for anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or their nearest police station.
