    Doesn't sound good at all. I'm wondering if it was a surfing accident and he never made it back to his room. Very sad for his family, not knowing.

    THE distressed wife of missing Australian surfer Peter Maynard has told of her agony after finding out her husband had mysteriously vanished while on a solo surfing adventure in Bali.

    The disappearance of father-of-three Peter Maynard, 45, from Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, has baffled local police.

    Mr Maynard was due to check out of his Bali hotel last Thursday but when hotel staff searched for him they found an unoccupied room with almost all of his personal possessions – including his phone, wallet and two surfboards – abandoned and untouched.

    Sunshine Coast man in ‘mysterious’ Bali disappearance
    Read more at http://www.9news.com.au/world/2014/0...AtDmIDJdruv.99

    A Queensland man has been reported missing in Bali after he failed to return to his hotel room without checking out or collecting any of his belongings.

    Noosa man Peter Maynard was reported missing by the hotel Nusa Indah Bungalow last week, after he failed to check out on August 28 after a five-night stay.

    Police said they found a significant number of Mr Maynard’s belongings in his hotel room including his surfboard, camera, iPad and passport.

    He was last seen by hotel staff at breakfast on August 26, with local police saying they had no clues as to where the Australian man may have gone.

    “If he had a marine accident, someone around the beach should know. If he went surfing, he would have bought his surf board. If he went diving, he must rent the diving tools in several dive operators here in Lembongan,” police chief Nyoman Suarsika told News Corp.

    A report today says that a lone surfer was seen surfing 10 foot waves around the time that Peter was thought to have gone missing .....

    Mr Capel told News Corporation that one of the surfers paddled away from the main group, to No Man’s Land, where they saw a big set of waves coming in.

    He said the wave was about 10 feet and that he saw the surfer catch a wave and then disappear with the foam. Mr Capel didn’t see him again.

    “It was a big set coming and we could see from far away he managed to catch one wave and after the big set was going, he went with the foam. Everybody thought he was gone back to the shore,” he said.

    Locals have said the swell last week, around the time Mr Maynard disappeared, was massive.

    Staff at the hotel had even asked Maynard if he needed a boat to take him out to the surf breaks but he had told them he would paddle out himself.

    But his wife has revealed that her husband was travelling with three surfboards. One is missing.

    Police chief Nyoman Suarsika said after talking to the family that Mr Maynard had come to Bali from his home in Noosa, Queensland, with three surfboards and two sets of clothing, but that only two boards and one wetsuit were found in his abandoned room at the Nusa Indah bungalows.

    "The last phone call he made was on August 22, calling to his wife in Australia to say he'd arrived in Bali and would stay in Lembongan," Mr Nyoman said.

    However, Mr Nyoman asked why, if it was a surfing accident, the board had not been found.

    "We would have found it. The weather from August 23 to 27 was quiet, there were no strong winds or big waves. The strong winds happened after August 28," he said.

    Mrs Maynard was able to confirm for police that one of his surfboards and a rash vest was missing.

    Mr Maynard’s brother, John .... revealed that his brother had not been seen since the morning of August 27 when he went surfing.
    “What we do know is that Peter had breakfast at his hotel that morning and then went surfing at either Shipwrecks, Lacerations or Playgrounds surfing break. He was wearing a bright blue surf vest and dark-coloured boardshorts and his surfboard is a white Hammo brand”

    Mr Maynard said the family understood that the conditions that day were “relatively benign” although other surfers spoken to by News Corporation have said the swell was big at that time.

    Indonesian police say officers inspected her husband’s room on Wednesday and found his clothes, surfing gear, passport and wallet but no indication of a break in.

    “We’re still searching, asking every other hotel, diving operators, but his name is not listed anywhere,” Nusa Pendida police chief Nyoman Suarsika said on Thursday. “A search was also conducted by sea and by spreading information among people, but so far, no answers.”

    The owner of the Nusa Indah Bungalow, where Mr Maynard was staying, has told the ABC staff quickly began searching for the Australian after finding his things.

    There is a brief video at this link of Peter's brother in Bali, giving his media statement ......


    "The family of Peter Maynard told police there had been no marital problems and that he had gone holidaying on Nusa Lembongan alone only because his wife, Kylie, could not get leave.

    In a statement to reporters on Friday, John Maynard, the brother of the missing man, said Peter had not been seen since the morning of the 27th of August, when he had breakfast and then went surfing."
