Police say ‘dangerous’ Leon King, who they’ve been searching for over the last week on the North Coast, continues to evade them and they are re-appealing for public assistance to help locate him.

He is wanted over an alleged domestic violence incident.

Police issued a similar a public appeal for a 23-year-old woman police who held concerns for – and who it was believed may have been kidnapped by Mr King last week.

She was subsequently located on Tuesday (June 5).

But Mr King himself has not been seen since he was last spotted on Tuesday May 8 in South Lismore.

He is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Island appearance, about 190cm tall, of a large build with black hair, a black beard and moustache.

Police have information he may still be in the Northern Rivers region.

Officers are urging anyone that sights Leon King not to approach him, but to instead contact Triple Zero (000) immediately.

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/

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.”
