Police appeal for man missing since 1966

NSW Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a man missing for the last 56 years.

Ronald Peter Owen (pictured) was last seen at his family home on Norman Street in Wendouree West, Victoria, some time in 1966.

Ronald’s family believe he may have travelled to NSW shortly after; however, he was not reported missing to police at the time of his disappearance.

Earlier this month, a family member of Mr Owen attended a pop-up familial DNA collection program – an initiative of the NSW Police Missing Persons Registry – in Queanbeyan, NSW, to provide a sample of his DNA and report Ronald’s disappearance, in the hope it would assist in locating Ronald.

Officers attached to State Crime Command’s Missing Persons Registry have commenced an investigation into his whereabouts.

At the time of his disappearance, Ronald was 18-years-old and is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of solid build, about 175cm tall, with a fair complexion and brown hair.

Ronald would now be 75-years-old.

Anyone with information into Ronald’s whereabouts is urged to contact police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
