Missing Persons Week - Coledale's Robert Neville


As part of this year’s Missing Persons Week, police are renewing their appeal to locate a man who went missing from the Illawarra region more than 11 years ago. 

Robert Neville, also known as Bobby, was 30 years old when he returned to his family home in Coledale on 29 September 2008 after a visit to Western Australia. The following morning (30 September 2008), he left the house to go for a walk but never returned. There have been unconfirmed sightings of Bobby around the country, but investigators from Wollongong Police District have received no further leads as to his whereabouts.

Bobby, who would now be 41, is described as having a tan complexion, about 183cm tall, and slim build. At the time of his disappearance he had dark, short wavy hair and suffered from a medical condition. Anyone who has seen Mr Neville, or has information as to his whereabouts, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
