Police have issued a fresh public appeal for witnesses in the case of missing Mullumbimby man Gage Wilson.

Mr Wilson’s last known sighting was in Mullumbimby’s town centre on 18 May.

The appeal comes after police stopped actively searching for Mr Wilson nearly a month ago.

A family coordinated search has continued, mostly around the Koonyum Range Road crash site of his partner’s car, which Mr Wilson is said to have been driving before his reported disappearance.

A search planned for Friday 21 June was postponed, with details of searches shared via a family-run Help Find Gage Wilson Facebook page.

Police this morning confirmed they are appealing for all witness who might have been camping or simply at Teales Lookout, Boogarem Falls or Koonyum Range Road in Wilsons Creek on Saturday 18 May, Sunday 19 May or Monday 20 May.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers or Bryon Bay Police station on 02 66859499.
