Breakthrough in suspected murder investigation

A MISSING CAR belonging to a suspected murder victim has been found on the Gold Coast.

Shaun Barker was reported missing by his family in January, having last been seen at a service station in the Gold Coast suburb of Broadbeach on December 10.

Forestry workers found a skull off Cooloola Coast Road in Tin Can Bay – about 300km north of the Sunshine Coast – on April 10 and forensic examinations identified it as Mr Barker’s.

Police announced on Saturday they have since made a breakthrough in the case, finding Mr Barker’s missing vehicle.

After a tip-off, it was found during a foot search on a track at Pacific Pines, about 20km from where he was last seen.

Investigations are continuing and police are appealing for information about Mr Barker’s movements around December 10.
