Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Byron’s Back

‘Byron’s dead’. That’s the statement that I often hear. Or ‘I never go there anymore it’s lost’ or ‘Byron died years ago’. It always makes me feel a bit sad and defensive. I have such a love for this place, although I curse it when I get stuck in snaking traffic at 8am on a weekday morning or I can’t find a park near where I am going.

Police are appealing for information after a child was approached by a man in a vehicle at Gulmarrad, south of Yamba, last week.

Shortly before 3.30pm on Friday (24 April 2015), a seven-year-old girl was riding her bike along Lorikeet Road on her way home from school, when a vehicle stopped that was travelling in the opposite direction.

Investigators have been told the male driver attempted to speak with the girl before making a U-turn and driving north toward Major Mitchell Drive.

The girl returned home and informed her parents who contacted officers from Coffs Clarence Local Area Command the following day.

Police are continuing their inquiries into the incident and would now like to speak with a man who may be able to assist in the investigation.

The man has only been described as having a tanned complexion, middle-aged, bald with a grey-coloured beard.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
