Police seek relatives as part of review of 1969 disappearance of John Boyle

Tasmania Police is reviewing the disappearance of John Boyle who was last seen in Tasmania’s Southwest National Park in 1969.

In October 1969 Mr Boyle, who some months earlier moved from Sydney to Hobart, was part of a group exploring Mt Anne.

During the exploration, Mr Boyle became separated from the other group and sadly, despite an extensive search, he was not located, and no trace of him has been located since.

At the time he went missing, Mr Boyle was 26-years-old.

As part of the review, Tasmania Police would like to speak with relatives of Mr Boyle.

He was the son of Edward Boyle and brother of Ken Boyle who at the time were living at Fairfield in New South Wales.

“Given the passage of time since Mr Boyle’s disappearance a report is being prepared for the Coroner and, as such, we’re reaching out across Australia with the aim of finding a sibling, a cousin or any other relative,” said Sergeant John Delpero

Relatives of Mr Boyle are asked to contact Tasmania Police on (03) 6173 2426 during business hours.
