Appeal For Missing Man

Mackay Detectives are continuing to appeal for information regarding missing 38-year-old man Scott Billingham after he was reported missing from Mackay earlier this month.

Scott was last seen at an address on Andergrove Road, Andergrove around 4pm on Friday, March 8, and has not been in contact with friends or family since.

Officers and partner agencies have been conducting extensive searches of the area around Andergrove for the past few weeks and are continuing subsequent enquiries this week.

Both police and Scott’s family hold serious concerns for his welfare due to him having a medical condition and the length of time he’s been missing, which continues to be considered out of character.

On Wednesday, Mackay Detective Senior Sergeant Chris Eaton appealed to members of the public who may have any information that could assist, whether it be minor or major, in coming forward.

“Police are seeking information from members of the public who may have seen Scott in the Andergrove area at approximately 5:10pm On Friday, the 8th of March.”

“Police are also seeking people who may have been in the Emperor Drive area between 5pm and midnight that may have dashcam footage or any CCTV footage that covers those surrounding streets.”

“We also know that on the following day, the Saturday the 9th, a male person was seen bathing or swimming in the McCreadys Creek area. Police would like to speak to any people who may have seen that particular person or if that person was you, we would ask you to come forward and notify police so we can rule you out of our investigation.”

Scott’s partner Kylie also appealed today to Mackay locals to help them locate the missing man in any way they can.

“I am begging anyone with any information at all to please come forward to help get him home to me,”

“When Scott went missing, he was wearing his work clothes, which were an orange hi-vis shirt, dark blue utility pants with reflector stripes and beige coloured work boots,”

“Scott has tattoos on the left side of his neck, his right forearm, the left torso/rib area, and the back of both legs.”

Scott is described as Caucasian, around 175cm tall, with a proportionate build and a bald head.
