Police scour Hawkesbury bush for missing party-goer

A search will take place this morning for a man believed to be missing in bushland in the Hawkesbury area.

About 8.10pm on Sunday police were notified that Tumucin Caglar, aged in his early 20s, failed to return from a music/camping party being held near Wheelbarrow Ridge Road track in Lower Portland.

This camp location is close to the intersection with Greens Road and adjoins rugged bushland.

Further investigations suggest he walked into surrounding bushland sometime between 6.30am and 9am, but did not return.

The search will involve police from Hawkesbury Local Area Command, Police Rescue, and PolAir.


Tumucin Caglar is described as having a shaved head with pale skin, dark brown eyes with a small moustache. He is about 170cm tall, with a medium build. At the time he went missing he was wearing a brown chequered button-up shirt, blue jeans, black Adidas sneakers, a red scarf and a black leather jacket.

Police have concerns for his welfare as he does not have any supplies and reportedly suffers from a medical condition.
