Two months after he vanished, there is still no sign of missing grazier Charles Morton

October 11, 2014

WHEN you call Strathtay Station a man’s voice speaks to you on the answering machine.

The voice says you have reached the home of Charles and Kathleen Morton, and you are asked to leave a message.

The voice is that of a missing grazier, who vanished from his 40,000ha property, 120km north of Hughenden, two months ago.

Mr Morton’s wife Kathleen, who was visiting family in Germany at the time of his disappearance, is not ready to delete the recording of her husband’s voice.

She hasn’t given up hope that he will walk through the homestead’s front door.

The couple married five years ago.

She told the Townsville Bulletin the isolated property has been “too quiet” since Charlie disappeared.

“I have no idea what has happened to him. Right now I am just taking it day by day,” she said.
