Search continues for missing Judge

The search for missing Federal Court Judge, Guy Andrew, has entered its fourth day, with police revealing his phone, wallet and shoes had been left behind at his home on the day he disappeared.

Judge Andrew was moved from Townsville to Brisbane last month following concerns regarding his conduct in the courtroom.

A judgement of the Family Court recently ordered a retrial in one of the cases he presided over, finding he had engaged in “bullying, insulting and demeaning” conduct towards court officials.

As a result, Judge Andrew’s sittings were being monitored in Brisbane.

He was last seen at his home in north Brisbane on Sunday morning, with Police believing he then drove toward Mount Coot-tha where he was known to take regular walks.

Yesterday police searched bushland on foot with assistance from officers on dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles. Police are also using an aerial drone in their efforts to find the missing judge.

SES personnel are also at the scene today to assist police search efforts.
