    There are quite a few reports on the above link...the latest report is dated Nov. 6, 2012

    The unconfirmed sighting is the strongest clue Donny’s family has had in weeks, following his disappearance from an Echuca campsite on September 1.

    Now more than two months since the 16-year-old ran off into the darkness, the Lake Boga sighting may hold new hope for a family torn apart by their missing son and brother.

    Donny turns 17 but no party for family of missing teen

    THE family of missing Ballarat teenager Donny Govan should have been telling him to have a happy 17th birthday, but yesterday they grieved his absence instead.

    Nearly six months since his disappearance from a Murray River campsite, Donny’s whereabouts remains a mystery.

    Ballarat region families renew calls for information on missing loved ones

    THE sisters of missing Linton teenager Donald Govan have again appealed for information on the seven month anniversary of his disappearance.

    Rachael O’Keane and Jacinta Jackson particularly urged Ballarat people heading to the Murray River to keep an eye out for the now 17-year-old, who disappeared from an Echuca campsite on September 1 last year.

    Donny Govan TV appeal

    Two national television segments to screen soon will hopefully bring home a loved son and brother to a Ballarat family.

    It has been 10 months since Donald "Donny" Govan, then 16, was last seen running from a campsite into dense bush near Echuca.

    Donny's story will feature on Channel 10's new program Wanted and SBS's Insight in coming weeks, in the hope someone will come forward with information.

    There is a thread on WS for the television show 'Wanted'.

    The family of missing teenager Donny Govan hopes their story, which will air on SBS’s Insight next week, will help to bring their loved one home.

    His story appeared briefly on Channel 7’s Today Tonight last year and is also expected to screen on Channel 10’s new program Wanted in coming weeks.

    ‘‘The more people we get involved and may recognise him, we feel this is the only way we can get him home.

    During filming for Insight, Donny’s family met other families with missing loved ones.

    ‘‘It was good for us to talk to other families going through the same thing, because it lets you know you’re not alone,’’ Ms O’Keane said.

    National Missing Persons Week throws the spotlight on those who haven't returned

    http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/...eturned/?cs=80

    By Eloise Johnstone July 30, 2013, midnight

    YOUTHS account for the majority of the region's missing person's cases and a lot of them are repeat offenders, local sergeants say.

    It's actually really sad these kids are considered run-aways and therefore get no media coverage at all. This segment is 1 year on, when really, it should have been far sooner. I must wonder where Donny is, and sure hope he is still alive out there.

    THE family of missing teen Donny Govan has spent the past year alive, but not living.
    Long-term plans have been put on hold as the Ballarat family waits to hear from their brother and son who went missing one year ago today.

    The polite but mischievous 16-year-old was doted on by his siblings, especially his four older sisters who always looked out him.
