    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    True, even that guy on the motorcycle filmed it, luckily. Very strange what's going down. I watched the footage of the robbers, they were both armed, handgun and a sawed off shotgun, and very well concealed with their clothing. Definitely professionals who mean business.

    He said police were continuing to look into whether Mr Thompson's disappearance was linked to an incident in September, where he was assaulted by masked men during a home invasion and had his vehicle stolen.

    Mr Thompson, an unemployed childcare worker, had recently moved to his apartment in Agnes St, Albion after the robbery.

    On Facebook, he detailed the other items that were stolen, including luxury brand watches, bags, wallets and shoes.

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-...m-thompson-probably-killed-police-say/8349310






    IMO a quick look at finances -----unemployed and just having moved into the apartment in Albion. These apartments are renting for at least $500 per week. The lovely Mustang would have been approx $73,000. The trip to Europe in 2016 and subsequent robbery of luxury brand items....seems like someone was envious of ST lifestyle.

    However, if he is a child care worker, how could he afford to own all those things? They do not earn all that much. How old is he? I just looked it up and he is 22yo and unemployed.

    Could someone have been hiding in the back of his car and he did not notice them or they held a gun at him and forced him to drive somewhere? IMO it is drug-related.

    There's clearly a lot more going on in this young mans life than police have revealed,a low income earning child care worker does not afford to drive a car like that let alone own the rest of the items mentioned. I think its safe to say he might of had a little job on the side unless it's family money?

    Would outwardly appear so .... unless as you said family money was involved...or a substantial bank loan when he was working...

    Police will no doubt venture into checking where finances have come from...

    Going by his FB he is familiar with Deep Water Bend Bald Hills.... pic of him and a jet ski..
