    Oh my, I wonder if he was ambushed on the way or met up with someone voluntarily who was up to no good.
    The footage of Sam driving on Sandgate Rd between 10 am -11am on 7 Mar, these next sightings are of his vehicle (from your link). I wonder if it was already out of his hands by then, he was held hostage or?
    There are just so many scenarios at this stage.

    His vehicle was then sighted in the carpark of the Deep Water Bend Reserve at Bald Hills around 1pm on Tuesday and remained there until the following day.

    The Mustang was again sighted in Wooyung, Northern New South Wales, around 7.30pm on Wednesday, March 8 before being located abandoned by police at the same location on Tweed Coast Road Thursday, March 9.

    This is a shot from the video linked above. The driver does appear to have a beard, but I'm not sure if it's Sam. What do you think?

    I think the footage is of him. You can make out the beard and also a beige top he was wearing when he left the apartment.

    Do they normally say 'foul play' and elude to murder unless they know something? For example in KR case it was treated as a missing persons case initially?

    This is cctv footage of Sam walking to the garage in his apartment building on 7 Mar. His beard is quite full and long compared to the other pics supplied to MSM, which are from 2016 and 2014.

    I wonder where he went after he left the apartment. It certainly wouldn't take him an hour and a half to drive from Albion to Nundah. That's about 5km.

    I was surprised too. There's mention of his vehicle being stolen in Sept. last year, maybe it has something to do with his disappearance.

    Mr Thompson was the victim of an unsolved robbery in Brisbane last September, in which his car was stolen. Police are investigating whether his disappearance might be linked to that crime.

    Queensland Detective Inspector Tim Tresize said around 40 detectives were now working on the case, with several leads being pursued, including the possibility Mr Thompson — or friends of his — had “unsavoury connections” who may have had something to do with his disappearance.

    After Sam's car was returned, he posted on fb that a Louis Vuitton bag, limited edition and a pair of Gucci loafers were still missing. Very pricey stuff.

    That T-shirt is quite loose about the arms whereas I can't see that in the car. I wondered whether the driver was wearing any top at all. If he is, it seems to be very close-fitting.

    I can see a man with a beard and at first I thought, shirtless, but maybe the beige tee.
