Possible sighting of missing Gold Coast man at popular flower carnival

There are reports a man, who has been missing from his home at Tamborine Mountain since Saturday, may have been spotted in Toowoomba.

Queensland Police are urging Trevor Wilson to contact them, after they received information that the 62-year-old may have been seen at the popular Carnival of Flowers event in Toowoomba.

“Useful information from members of the public have been provided to Policelink which indicates Mr Wilson may have been at Carnival of Flowers events in Toowoomba over the weekend,” Queensland police said in a statement on Tuesday.


“The number one concern of police and Mr Wilson’s family is his well-being and are urging him to make contact to visit his nearest police to let them know he is okay and so they can finalise their missing person report.”

Mr Wilson was last seen at his Katoomba Crescent home by his wife on Friday evening but was gone when she woke up on Saturday.

His wallet and mobile phone were left at the home.

Search teams have since conducted a large search for the keen bushwalker in the Tamborine area but have not found any trace of Mr Wilson.

His family say his disappearance is completely out of character, with concerns being held for his welfare.

Mr Wilson is described as Caucasian with a proportionate build, around 170 centimetres tall with short grey hair and green eyes.

Anyone who may have seen Mr Wilson or knows of his whereabouts is urged to contact police.
