Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a man last seen leaving a Northern Rivers town two weeks ago.

Scott Payne, 34, left a home at Coutts Crossing, 20km south of Grafton, on Wednesday, November 29. Police believe Mr Payne could have been walking in the area.

His 4WD and personal items were found at Dalmorton, 60km west of Coutts Crossing, two days later (Friday, December 1), but there have been no sightings of Mr Payne since.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 180cm to 185cm tall, with a thin build, brown hair and hazel eyes. Mr Payne has a full beard and moustache.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident should call Grafton Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
