    Doesn't sound good at all. I'm wondering if it was a surfing accident and he never made it back to his room. Very sad for his family, not knowing. :(

    THE distressed wife of missing Australian surfer Peter Maynard has told of her agony after finding out her husband had mysteriously vanished while on a solo surfing adventure in Bali.

    The disappearance of father-of-three Peter Maynard, 45, from Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, has baffled local police.

    Mr Maynard was due to check out of his Bali hotel last Thursday but when hotel staff searched for him they found an unoccupied room with almost all of his personal possessions – including his phone, wallet and two surfboards – abandoned and untouched.

    Sunshine Coast man in ‘mysterious’ Bali disappearance

    A Queensland man has been reported missing in Bali after he failed to return to his hotel room without checking out or collecting any of his belongings.

    Noosa man Peter Maynard was reported missing by the hotel Nusa Indah Bungalow last week, after he failed to check out on August 28 after a five-night stay.

    Police said they found a significant number of Mr Maynard’s belongings in his hotel room including his surfboard, camera, iPad and passport.

    He was last seen by hotel staff at breakfast on August 26, with local police saying they had no clues as to where the Australian man may have gone.

    “If he had a marine accident, someone around the beach should know. If he went surfing, he would have bought his surf board. If he went diving, he must rent the diving tools in several dive operators here in Lembongan,” police chief Nyoman Suarsika told News Corp.

    Police chief Nyoman Suarsika said after talking to the family that Mr Maynard had come to Bali from his home in Noosa, Queensland, with three surfboards and two sets of clothing, but that only two boards and one wetsuit were found in his abandoned room at the Nusa Indah bungalows.

    "The last phone call he made was on August 22, calling to his wife in Australia to say he'd arrived in Bali and would stay in Lembongan," Mr Nyoman said.

    However, Mr Nyoman asked why, if it was a surfing accident, the board had not been found.

    "We would have found it. The weather from August 23 to 27 was quiet, there were no strong winds or big waves. The strong winds happened after August 28," he said.

    Mrs Maynard was able to confirm for police that one of his surfboards and a rash vest was missing.

    Mr Maynard’s brother, John .... revealed that his brother had not been seen since the morning of August 27 when he went surfing.
    “What we do know is that Peter had breakfast at his hotel that morning and then went surfing at either Shipwrecks, Lacerations or Playgrounds surfing break. He was wearing a bright blue surf vest and dark-coloured boardshorts and his surfboard is a white Hammo brand”

    Mr Maynard said the family understood that the conditions that day were “relatively benign” although other surfers spoken to by News Corporation have said the swell was big at that time.

    A family spokesperson confirmed that Missing Man Peter Maynard had breakfast at his accommodation on August 27, then went for a surf at one of the local breaks known as Shipwrecks, Lacerations or Playgrounds.

    Name: Peter Maynard
    Missing from: Nusa Lembongan, an island just off Bali.
    Nationality: Australian (from- Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast)

    Age: 45
    Wearing: A bright blue surf vest or rashie
    A dark-coloured boardshorts

    Other: Peter Maynard's white Hammo brand surfboard is missing.

    Circumstances:
    Peter Maynard was staying alone at a Hotel on Nusa Lembongan Island, Bali.
    He had breakfast at his accommodation on August 27, then went for a surf at one of the local breaks known as Shipwrecks, Lacerations or Playgrounds.
    The ocean conditions on that day were relatively benign.

    The 45-year-old was due to check out of his bungalow accommodation on August 28.
    When he didn't, staff went to his room and found all of his personal effects still there and no sign of a break-in.
    Hotel staff have reported the missing man looked relaxed and well when they last saw him.
    His family, authorities, Rescue Services and concerned expats and surfers are searching for him.

    Nusa Penida police chief Nyoman Suarsika said he believed if Mr Maynard went missing in the surf, his board would have already been found.
    "We are still searching, but there's no sign at all yet.
    "If it's true he had another board and went surfing, then for sure by now the board would have been found floating."

    Touched down .... Kylie, the wife of missing Noosa man Peter Maynard, has flown into Bali as the search continues. Picture: Facebook

    ANOTHER Australian has died in the surf in Bali, as the search continues for missing Queenslander Peter Maynard on the nearby island of Nusa Lembongan.

    Police say friends of the latest victim - Geoffrey Robert Moase, a surfboard shaper from Tallebudgera Valley on the Gold Coast - found the 54-year-old floating in the surf in Lombok yesterday morning.

    His death comes after 27-year-old Australian Peter Luke died after being hit by a huge wave on a remote beach on the island of Sumbawa last month.

    There is a brief video at this link of Peter's brother in Bali, giving his media statement ......


    "The family of Peter Maynard told police there had been no marital problems and that he had gone holidaying on Nusa Lembongan alone only because his wife, Kylie, could not get leave.

    In a statement to reporters on Friday, John Maynard, the brother of the missing man, said Peter had not been seen since the morning of the 27th of August, when he had breakfast and then went surfing."

    Debris confirmed as missing Aust man's

    September 07, 2014


    THE wife of missing Australian man Peter Maynard has confirmed a chunk of surfboard found off Bali is his.

    MR Maynard's wife Kylie on Sunday identified the top section of a white Hammo brand board, found by a local last week, as her husband's.

    A local man found the surfboard section at a spot called Shipwrecks on August 28, but only on Saturday heard a man was missing and took it to police.

    The section of surfboard found in Bali.

    The officer said police had not given up hope of finding Mr Maynard alive.

    "We continue the search," he said on Sunday morning.
    "Who knows, we might find the victim around the area.
    "Certainly we hope he has survived."

    Nusa Penida police chief Nyoman Suarsika says the focus of the search on Sunday has moved to the area where the surfboard section was found.

    The police hunt extended over land and sea, he said.

    That's good news - that the search continues for Peter Maynard.
    I thought when they found a piece of the board that they may think that Peter would not be found - but its encouraging to hear that they will keep looking for him.
    Hoping for that extraordinary outcome - that they find him.
    Prayers of strength for his family.

    Police say surfing in the area is much safer than diving, and they are baffled by the disappearance of the 45-year-old, who has no known medical conditions and was surfing in relatively calm conditions.

    “The coral rock in Lembongan actually makes it not risky for surfing,” Wirajaya said.

    “For diving, yes, that’s risky because the current is quite strong.

    “In the past five years, there’s never been a surfing fatality (there).”

    A local man handed in the broken top section of the Queenslander’s Hammo surfboard on Saturday, seemingly confirming the family’s fears he went missing in the water.

    Detective Nyoman Wirajaya handed over the piece to the family on Monday, but said police might need it back if the disappearance became a criminal matter.
