    'Karl, we love you – please come home': mother's appeal to missing son
    The Sydney Morning Herald

    September 5 2016

    'The mother of missing Maroubra man Karl Melo-Richards has appealed for anyone who may have seen her son to come forward, as his disappearance stretched into a fourth day.

    Mr Melo-Richards, 25, was last seen around 1.30pm on Friday afternoon when his family left the house on Broome Street. When they returned later that afternoon, there was no sign of him.

    "The doors to the house were all open – the back and front door – and he's left his wallet and keys and his car," the man's mother told Fairfax Media. "And when we rang his phone, it was not available, switched off, and has been switched off ever since.

    "Karl, we love you. Please come home or at least contact us so we know you're safe."'

    Mother of missing Maroubra man “wants to know he’s safe”
    Melissa Seiler

    'The mother of a Maroubra man now missing for six days has pleaded with him to come home, saying her son’s disappearance is “not normal” behaviour for him.'

    'Eastern Beaches Police have conducted several searches of the local area without success.

    Mr Melo-Richards’ mother Vanessa Richards her son was “having a long-term battle with depression” at the time of his disappearance, and had never gone off without telling her before.'

    'Karl’s mother is hopeful the day was the only rainy one recently would jog someone’s memory.

    “We don’t know whether Karl left the house on foot, or was perhaps picked up by someone in a car.”'

    'Karl’s mother asked that anyone who saw him between 2pm and 5pm that Friday, particularly in the South Maroubra area, near Broome St or the surf club, please call Maroubra Police on 93499299.'

    Sorry about that, Donjeta. Posted it using my mobile on a bumpy bus ride home from a long day shift. Have alerted a Mod. Thanks for letting me know.

    So little publicity for Karl, compared to recent higher profile MPs in Oz.
