    NSW Police are appealing for public information to locate a man who went missing from Sydney’s north west more than 50 years ago.

    Cyril Levitsky, then aged 37, is believed to have left a facility in North Ryde to visit relatives living in Roseville on Saturday, 28 November, 1970.

    He was later reported missing to police by family members when he failed to arrive.

    Since Mr Levistky’s disappearance, NSW Police have conducted extensive investigations to locate him and are appealing to the public to come forward with any information that may assist detectives with their ongoing inquiries.

    Missing Persons Registry Coordinator, Detective Inspector Glen Browne, said specialist police continue to review all information received that relates to long-term missing persons in an effort to provide answers to loved ones.

    “NSW Police have conducted exhaustive inquiries to locate Cyril and believe his family – who are of a Russian background – migrated to Australia from China in 1950 or 1951,” Det Insp Browne said.

    “It is further believed that family members lived in the Redfern and Rockdale areas until the mid-1980’s.

    “Police are issuing an appeal to the public – particularly those members of the Russian-Australian community – to come forward with any information about Cyril and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance,” Det Insp Browne said.

    At the time of his disappearance, Cyril was described as being about 178cm tall, of a medium build, with a fair complexion, brown hair and hazel eyes.

    He was also known to friends and family as “Kiki”.

    Anyone with information about Cyril’s disappearance is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    DNA from a nephew could bring the case one step forward.

    The nephew was contacted a month ago to give a DNA sample.

    He was told they won't have any results on the sample til after Christmas.

    Seems a body was found about the same period that Cyril disappeared. It was found along a railway track,
