A two-day police search near Kimba in connection with the disappearance of Adelaide man Scott Redman has concluded without any significant evidence being located.
The search, along a 50m x 5.5 kilometre stretch alongside Middleback Road, was looking for items connected with an associate of Mr Redman.
Mr Redman, 19, from Holden Hill, was reported missing on April 24 by an associate who had been arrested by police.
Both the associate and Mr Redman are believed to have been in a vehicle involved in a short police pursuit in the Kimba area on April 21.
Mr Redman’s associate told police the pair became separated following the pursuit, with the vehicle later found abandoned next to a radio tower on a hill off Middleback Road near Secret Rocks, about 40km east of Kimba.
Extensive enquiries to locate Mr Redman have been ongoing since he was reported missing.
However, the investigation and numerous searches across metropolitan Adelaide, Whyalla, Kimba and the Middleback Range have so far failed to locate Mr Redman and police hold grave concerns for his wellbeing.
This week’s search involved police from STAR Group, State Tactical Response Group, Whyalla, Cowell, Kimba, Major Crime Investigation Branch and members of the State Emergency Service.
SA Police will continue to assess information in connection with the disappearance of Mr Redman. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at www.crimestopperssa.com.au – you can remain anonymous.
Mr Redman (pictured) is about 178cm tall, with a slim build, blonde hair, blue eyes and tattoos on his arms.
