– A former Sydney detective has been charged with the murder of 20-year-old Jamie Gao, who disappeared almost a week ago, and police are searching for another former officer, Roger Rogerson.

Meanwhile, a body has been recovered from waters off Cronulla but it’s not been confirmed whether it’s that of the missing student.
Police now believe Mr Gao was taking part in a deal involving a “substantial quantity” of drugs when he was last seen getting into a white car with two men in Padstow.
They say they’ve seized several kilos of methamphetamine.
Former Kings Cross detective Glen McNamara, 55, has been charged with the young man’s murder as well as commercial drug supply.
Angela Lavoipierre, covering the case for ABC News, told 1233 ABC Newcastle’s Jill Emberson that McNamara was once a whistle-blower on police corruption.
And she says police also want to speak to disgraced former detective Roger Rogerson, 73, who’s believed to be in Queensland.
“Jamie was last seen getting into a car, speaking with two men in Padstow in Sydney’s southwest,” Angela says.
“Police found his car nearby with his keys, his wallet, his phone and his friends say this disappearance is really out of character.
“We know that he had planned to meet these two men and he was excited to meet these two men.”
Detectives yesterday made a public appeal for information, saying they believed the missing student had been not only kidnapped but killed.
“Yesterday evening they did arrest Glen McNamara , who is a former State detective and in fact a corruption whistle-blower himself,” Angela says.
She explains McNamara was stationed at Kings Cross during the 1980s and 90s.
“Which of course was a pretty shady business at the time and was the subject of many corruption inquiries, ” she says.
“He actually turned whistle-blower on some of those detectives.”
Police are also keen to speak to Rogerson, who served time in jail for conspiracy and lying to the Police Integrity Commission.
They’ve said they could be making further arrests over the kidnapping and murder of Jamie Gao.
Police have confirmed Mr Gao’s mother is returning to Australia from Hong Kong.
Glen McNamara briefly appeared in a Sydney court this morning, where his lawyer asked that he be placed in protective custody.

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.
