Search underway for man who vanished on his regular morning run

Concerns are being held for a young man who failed to return home from his regular morning run and has not yet turned up at work.

Police said that around 4.15am this morning, Rhys Sutton left his house at Jacob King Place for his usual run.

“Mr Sutton usually returns no later than 5.30am as he then heads to work. He failed to return home and has not turned up at his work place,” police said in a statement.


The 26-year-old is an experienced runner and has a good geographical knowledge of the area, so his disappearance is a mystery.

It is believed Rhys usually runs around the residential area of Emu Plains and Leonay.

Police along with SES and members of the local community are currently searching these areas.

Mr Sutton is described as being about 180cm tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing running attire including black shorts.
