‘Grave fears’ for missing Doveton man

Brendon Farrell was last seen by a friend at his Kidds Road, Doveton home on 31 May.


Police hold “grave fears” for Doveton man Brendon Farrell, who has been missing for more than a month.

The 32-year-old was last seen by a friend about 12.30pm on Monday 31 May at home on Kidds Road in Doveton.

Mr Farrell lived in a rear bungalow behind the main building.

Victoria Police’s Missing Persons Squad detectives were told that there may have been an altercation at the address.

Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper said police held “grave fears” for Mr Farrell after his “very much out-of-character” disappearance.

“Investigators are keen to know more about the altercation that has taken place at the Kidds Road property on the day he was last seen, particularly who was present at the time.

“This will provide some further avenues of enquiry for us.”

Police had made a “significant number of enquiries” to find Mr Farrell since family members reported him missing on 2 June.

His bank account and phone have not been used since 31 May.

Mr Farrell’s preferred transport was his bicycle, which has yet to be located.

He is described as about 168 centimetres with a slim to medium build and shaved reddish hair.

It’s believed he was wearing a black tracksuit at the time.

“We’re appealing for anyone who does have information, whether that is about this altercation or where Brendon may currently be, to come forward and contact police,” Det Insp Stamper said.

“Brendon’s family are desperate for answers and we’re hoping that someone will do the right thing and provide them.”
