Police Urgent appeal for public assistance: Missing man, Cairns City

Police are asking for public assistance to locate 63-year-old man missing since yesterday morning, Tuesday March 14.

He’s believed to have left an address along the Esplanade just after 11.30am on foot and has not been heard from since.

Police and family have concerns for his welfare as he has a medical condition which causes disorientation and lack of awareness for his safety, especially around roads.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution in and around the area.

John is described as Aboriginal, 178cm tall with a proportionate build, white bushy hair and a white and grey bushy beard.

He may be wearing a green hospital gown.

Residents nearby are asked to check under their houses, in sheds and carports for signs of John.

Anyone with information on John’s whereabouts is urged to contact police; particularly motorists travelling along Mulgrave Road or Sheridan Street, who may have seen John or given him a lift.

The man has been located.
