– A crime investigation unit has taken over from search parties in Victoria to try to solve the disappearance of missing bushwalker Warren Meyer.
Up to 100 people, including police and SES volunteers, failed to find a trace of Canadian-born Mr Meyer who went missing last Sunday in the Yarra Ranges National Park, east of Melbourne.

Senior Detective Stuart Walls of the Alexandra Crime Investigation Unit said today police now had to look at other avenues of inquiry following the exhaustive search which failed to find the 57-year-old Beaumaris man.

“This man was an experienced bushwalker, he had a mobile phone, GPS, he was in good physical condition – his disappearance is baffling,” Sen Det Walls said.

“Warren had no reason to disappear, he had no money with him and he loved his family dearly.

“To not find anything, even his backpack, seems very strange.”

Senior Constable David Fitzgerald, who helped look for Mr Meyer during the week, said it seemed strange that with all the resources police poured into the search they failed to turn up anything.

“We’re not saying he’s been murdered or kidnapped, but that’s the sort of thing we have to start working on,” Sen Constable Fitzgerald said.

“It seems strange he has disappeared – for all intents and purposes he has disappeared off the face of the earth.”

Detectives say they would like to speak to anyone who may have been camping in the Black Spur, Narbethong or Acheron Way area over the Easter break.

They would especially like to talk to a group of about eight men who were in four or five vehicles and who may have given a man aged in his late 30s a lift to the Warburton area.


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
