    Gary Tweddle mystery remains unsolved
    More than 1,000 people gave more than 10,000 hours over 12 days but, in the end, no one could find Gary Tweddle.
    With no sign of the 23-year-old who disappeared from the Fairmont Resort on July 16, his grieving parents reluctantly left Leura last Friday to return to their homes, the fate of their son still a mystery.

    Have you seen Gary Tweddle Facebook Page
    Questions answered
    Gary has the ‘Find my Phone’ app – however since the phone has no battery, this was not able to give a location. Police have contacted Apple and Google in the UK and US to determine whether they have any information that could be used to locate Gary.

    A SALESMAN who disappeared during a Blue Mountains conference told a witness he was going to buy drugs, an inquest will be told.
