Mum's Plea For Lost Son Leads To Search
Queensland police will search a property near Toowoomba after a tip-off about the suspected murder of Brisbane man Sam Purcell-Price.
The new information follows an appeal by his mother Leoni Price last month on the third anniversary of her 25-year-old son's disappearance.
Investigators, scientific officers and SES volunteers will search a private property at Leyburn, southwest of Toowoomba, from Wednesday with the search expected to continue for days.
Mr Price-Purcell was last seen in the Brisbane suburb of Mitchelton on February 16, 2015 as he got into a bright yellow 2010 Holden Commodore SS sedan.
It's believed he then travelled to the Toowoomba area where he was murdered.
Last month, his mother Leoni Price told reporters she'd gradually accepted she would never see him again.
"We need to know what happened so that we can have some peace," she said.
"The emptiness that I feel, his loss has just left a massive hole in our hearts."
Police revealed at the time that they had identified a group of people they believed may have been involved.
"This will not go away," Detective Inspector Damien Hansen said, warning they had a limited amount of time to come forward.
