Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate a 22-year-old man reported missing from Albion in Queensland.
Samuel Thompson, 22, was last seen in Albion last Tuesday morning, (March 7), and has not made contact with family or friends since.
Samuel is described as Caucasian, 180cm tall with a slim build, brown hair and brown eyes.
He drives a 2016 Ford Mustang that is burnt orange in colour and bears Queensland registration SAMMO. The vehicle was found at Wooyung on Thursday morning, March 9.
The vehicle was spotted in the car park of the Deep Water Bend Reserve at Bald Hills just after midnight on Wednesday, and was seen again at Wooyung about 7.30pm that night.
Police found it abandoned at the same spot on Thursday.
Officers leading the search for Mr Thompson have released security camera footage of his last known movements, hoping it might prompt anyone with information to come forwards.
Their priority is piecing together his movements, and those of his car, in the lead up to its discovery on Thursday.
Mr Thompson’s parents reported him missing last week, and his social media accounts have not been used since his last contact with family on Tuesday.
A team of 20 officers is on the case.
Mr Thompson was the victim of an unsolved robbery in Brisbane last September, in which his car was stolen. Police are investigating whether his disappearance might be linked to that crime.
Anyone with information about the movements of Mr Thompson is urged to contact police.
