    Australia - Sean Sargent, 24, Ferny Hills, Qld, 19 March 1999

    Hi folks. Long time lurker here, looking for some more info from the elite in sleuthers.
    I watched a programme yesterday in the UK, called missing. One of the cases was abut a young man named Sean Sargent. I have tried to find some further info on his case, but to no avail. I was wondering if someone on here would investigate this case, as you are all fantastic at digging around.
    This case is shrouded in mystery and has me absolutely hooked. here are details given by his desperate family on the programme.

    it is approx 8 yrs ago he went missing
    He was a lieutenant in the army and never missed a days work
    He was last seen at a party with friends, walking towards his car to sleep. His car has never been found since he went missing.
    About a month before he vanished he told his girlfriend they had to finish as he had something to do
    About a week before he vanished he amalgamated all his accounts into one

    Since his disappearance, his dad contacted the army to see if he had been officially discharged. They would not say but gave him a date he could be discharged. Seans father contacted the army on this given date, but again they refused to tell him if his son had been discharged.
    His sister is called Nancy Anderson
    Shortly after his disappearance the family received a file marked top secret. They contacted missing, who said to photocopy it and send to them. Sean's dad mentioned this to Seans seargant, who said. dont do that or we will prosecute. The family did not disclose hat the file containd, but did say they hd returned it to the army.
    The army will no longer speak to Seans dad, or return his calls.
    Shortly after Sean's disappearance, the family started receiving strange phone calls. The caller does not speak, but they can be heard breathing. Toms mum speaks to the mystery caller, as if it is her son. The first time she did this the caller hung up. The family have received dozens of these calls and are still receiving them 8 yrs later. They have been traced to Engand, Canada and Ireland.
    That is all the info i jotted down from the programme.
    I am hoping someone will delve into this case to help give the family closure. Maybe even contact the father, who i am sure has much more to tell.
    Having briefly looked on the internet and with my limited knowledge, i can find very little (i dont know how you uys do it). Some articles mention Sean was involvd in an altercation with another man outside a party, but the dad never mentiond this on the programme.

    I live in Australia and in the same state Sean vanished in. However I never heard of the case before.
    I note his car vanished too. I doubt there is much information on this case made known to the public but I will see if I can find anything.
    Maybe it was a freak accident or maybe it is a bit more sinister.

    According to the Australian Federal Police Sean was involved in a fight outside the residence he had been attending a party at.
    Possibly it was a 'get square'.

    Picture of Sean and some brief details of his disappearance - No mention of the Army links - which is hardly surprising, given the nature of military secrecy...

    There appears to be very little to go on here, which is deeply disappointing.

    Sean is also listed on doenetwork Case File 3728DMQLD http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3728dmqld.html

    Seems we all posted at around the same time, guys - Sorry if I've duplicated any links...

    Thanks for picking this up you lovely people. I was hoping someone would contact his father and get him on here.

    The programme was shown in England. The last few in the series were about Australia for some reason.

    I dont have the time or knowledge to dig into this case, but it has me absolutely hooked. I really hope you brilliant people on here will find out much more. As you have already found out there is very little info regarding this case on the net. I think his family are going to give the most info regarding Sean.

    Fingers crossed here that you will find out more to help solve this case.

    Sean visited friends at 1900hrs on 19/3/99 at Orchid Street, St Lucia Brisbane. He became intoxicated and at about 2300hrs he and three friends attended a party at Hawkins Drive, St Lucia. Sean had an altercation with a male person in front of the residence, a fight took place and Sean and friends returned to Orchid Street.

    This post is my opinion only unless supported with a link.

    She has been uncooperative with law enforcement and has seemingly moved on with her life.

    I don't understand why this kid would just leave and never contact his parents again? Did the cops ever interview the guy he had the fight with?

    That's what I was wondering - did they interview the guy he had the altercation with? He should be considered a POI at least - not necessarily a suspect. Hopefully they interviewed the friends as well. People don't just vanish into thin air!

    Hi all. I dont know how to contact his father, i have put all the info i know on here. Also i am not very good at finding people as you guys do. It always amazes me how you do it. [I tried looking up my sister on 192.com and couldnt find her lol]

    As i said the fact Sean was involved in a fight was never mentioned in the programme, so i dont know if he has been questioned as a poi.

    Also i would have thought Seans parents would be his next of kin, so im puzzled why the army wont say if Sean has been discharged or not.

    This case is one of a few on here that has me so intrigued. I do hope someone can take it further

    "Sean Sargent

    Age:25
    Height (cm):179
    Hair Colour:Brown
    Eye Colour:Blue
    Build:Medium
    Date of Disappearance:19/3/1999

    Information

    Sean Sargent was last seen at a party in St. Lucia, Brisbane on March 19th, 1999. He was living in Ferny Hills in Brisbane, QLD at the time of his disappearance. Also missing is his blue Ford Falcon XB registration 746 ENN.

    Police dragged the Brisbane river, but failed to find Sean or his car.

    Tom Sargent believes his son, a former 1st Joint Support Lieutenant at Ennogera Army Base, is still alive.

    "I think he`s still alive - he`s a resilient type of fellow," Mr Sargent said. "If something has happened to him, you would think police would find him or his car. He went to a friend’s party and at midnight he disappeared. He said he wouldn`t drive home, but sleep in his car."

    If you have any information or sightings please contact
    CrimeStoppers 1800 333 000"

    Jilly and other Sleuths - I am in the UK and there's usually some more detailed internet information on that Missing programme which Jilly refers to - however, I looked yesterday and could find nothing - I've googled some other details today, and found the above segment from http://www.crimenet.org/show_missing...53a945ecf1e33c

    This at least gives us Sean's dad's name as Tom - I'm wondering whether any of our Australian colleagues here could check out any connections there, that might enable someone brave enough to contact the family, if that were felt appropriate...?

    Hi there,

    I read with interest the posts on this site after googling Sean. I periodically google and search Sean since his disappearance, still hopeful one day he will turn up.

    I am his cousin from the UK, now living in Canada. I last saw Sean a couple of years prior to his disappearance and can just say what a great person he is and how close he was to his sister and family. I do know that when he went missing, for whatever reason, it devastated his family in Australia and the unknown is a horrid thing to come to terms with and get use to - i dont know if one ever does? It would be great if Sean returned to Uncle Tom and the rest of his family in oz so if you get any information at all which may help it would be amazing.
