The family of the missing man, Tennant Creek man Andrick Ross, have made an emotional request for information to help find him.
- Andrick Ross planned to travel to Alpurrurulam via Urandangi Station
- His car was found parked near Headingly Station, 35 km from the NT-Queensland border
- His sister says the family is extremely worried and asks everyone with information to come forward
In a statement, the family said the 35-year-old left the Northern Territory city and traveled via Camooweal to Mount Isa in Queensland with four relatives on September 21st.
The family said he was in Mount Isa until at least September 28th.
His sister, Regina Elkedra, said the family was very worried about him.
“He’s been gone for three or four weeks now,” she said.
“We really miss him, me and my sister and the whole family.
‘Not a naughty person’
The family said, after leaving Mount Isa, that Mr Ross was planning to travel to Alpurrurulam, also known as Lake Nash, via Urandangi station.
His vehicle was found parked near Headingly Station, about 35 miles outside the Northern Territory-Queensland border.
The family said he was a healthy, kind person.
“He’s not a naughty person, he’s a kind-hearted young man,” Elkedra said.
Mr. Ross is also a well-known artist in the region and has worked with Barkly Arts for many years.
Mrs Elkedra said she was very concerned that he should disappear in such a remote area.
The police search is underway
NT police have conducted investigations on the NT side of the border and are urging anyone who may have information or have seen Mr Ross to contact them.
His family also asked everyone with information to help find him.
“If they can find him anywhere, see him anywhere, I want them to call the police right away,” Elkedra said.
She also asked Mr Ross to come back to her family.
