    Police said Mr Roper had a number of distinctive tattoos, including a flame design on his upper right arm and the numerals 2035 on his back.

    He was last seen wearing a light coloured T-shirt, dark brown shorts and thongs.

    Police say there are suspicious circumstances surrounding his disappearance.

    Mr Roper left his mobile phone, car and other belongings behind at his property in Prince Street, Randwick, about 7pm (AEDT) on January 26, leading police to suspect that he may have come to harm.

    ‘‘We know that his phone is still at home, we know that his car is still at home and he hasn’t taken anything,’’Superintendent Gavin Dengate told reporters on Wednesday.

    ‘‘That in itself is suspicious, by his character.

    In recent times, Ms Pippen said her son had reported receiving some taunting text messages from an unknown person. It was unclear whether they were linked to his disappearance.

    Inspector Leonard James says police have “grave fears” about Mr Roper’s safety.

    “We do feel that he may not be well at the moment,” he says. “From what I understand, he was in a steady relationship. He appears to be a well-liked person who does his job well and that this is very much out of the ordinary for him.”

    A Facebook page called Help Us Find Benny was created yesterday, aiming to spread information as the search for Roper continues.

    I hope they find him safe. It doesn't sound good.

    This is not sounding like a good thing. Vibrant personality with ties to B.B's (see MSM links posted above), combined with this latest media release. Prior to seeing this story regarding specific threats, I had done a google search on 'Ben Roper', 'Virgin Australia' and 'facebook'. I found a facebook link that should have been this Ben's facebook page, only to find it is an expired link. Not a good sign with the current allegations of some threatening messages.

    Let's hope he took these 'messages' personally and has just gone to ground.

    MISSING Sydney flight attendant Ben Roper had been frightened and deeply upset by a series of threatening homophobic messages he received last month, his friends and family said yesterday.

    A comment posted on a Facebook page set up to help find the popular man who disappeared on January 26, revealed Ben posted a message on December 10 "about someone sending him abusive homophobic voicemails from a blocked number".

    Some friends on Help Us Find Benny are saying that they can still see his personal FB page, while others can't ... may be set to be ultra-private.

    Interesting reading about the 2035 tattoo/Bra Boys association at the Wiki link. Seems BB allegedly used flight catering for some activities several years ago.
