$100K reward offered for information about missing NSW man

Police are renewing their appeal for information into a man who has been missing from Armidale since New Years Eve 1993, after a reward relating to his disappearance was increased to $100,000.

William “Bill” Roach, who was aged 25 at the time, was last seen on Grafton Road Armidale, on Friday 31 December 1993.

Investigations into the circumstances surround his disappearance have been ongoing ever since.


A reward increase of $100,000 for information leading to the location of William Roach has been approved, with police hoping the reward will help to solve the case.

“Mr Roach’s family deserve to know what happened to him. They have waited long enough for answers about his disappearance,” Minister for Police Toy Grant said.

“We hope that this increase in the reward will encourage anyone with information to come forward and help bring a resolution to this investigation”.

Detectives have been following a number of lines of inquiry and executed a crime scene warrant at a property on the outskirts of Armidale in late February.

Anyone with any information can contact Armidale Detectives on 02 6771 0699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
