Police keen to close the files on mysteries

AS part of Missing Persons Week, detectives from the Richmond Local Area Command are renewing their appeal to find Stacy De Sielvie who disappeared from the Lismore area 14 years ago.

Mr De Sielvie left his home in Victoria in 1994 and moved to Darlinghurst where he kept in contact with family.

On April 20 he made a phone call to his father, and as a result his father deposited some money into Stacy's bank account.

The money was withdrawn periodically over the next three months with the last withdrawal on July 1, 1994, from an ATM in Lismore. This was his last known movement.

Detective Dave Mackie, from the Richmond LAC, said he was hoping some fresh information may come to light during the current Missing Persons Week.

“We believe that Stacy was working as a barman in a licensed premise in the Lismore area at the time of his disappearance,” Det Mackie said.

“Stacy was also known to have used an address managed by the Southern Cross University in Lismore. Although he was not a student at the university he did associate with students, in particular a female student who has since returned to Fiji.”

He was described as of Indian/Pakistani appearance, 160cm tall, and 60kg with brown hair and grey eyes, and an olive complexion. He would now be aged 35.

An inquest will be held into the disappearance of Stacy De Sielvie in the Lismore Coronial Court in three weeks.

“We are hopeful that someone who may hold the key to Stacy's whereabouts will come forward with fresh information that may assist our investigations,” Det Mackie said.

Adults who are reported as missing on our local list include David Austin who went missing on May 7, 1999, Jason Buchan in March last year, Eve Hamar in May 2005, Sarah Hobbs and Andrew Lyttle in 2006, Paul Lubrano in 2001 and Lucy McDonald in April 2002.

If you have information on any of these people, please contact Lismore Detectives on 6626 0607 or free call 1800 000 634.
