Police update 2: Search for missing man at Imbil

Coordinators would like to thank the community for their recent support in the thorough ground search which included significant resources such as the State Emergency Service, the Mounted Unit, police motorbikes, all-terrain vehicles, Water Police and Polair.

Police continue to investigate the disappearance of Tarci Carey as coordinators temporarily scale down the ground search to focus efforts on other lines of inquiry to locate him.

Mr Carey was last seen at approximately 4am on Friday August 5, leaving a Meditation Court address in Nambour in a silver Mitsubishi with QLD registration 438CK2 (pictured). He has not made contact with anyone since.

Initial investigations indicate he attended a service station at Forrest Glen at approximately 2.10am that morning, before driving to the Meditation Court address.

Police have released an image of Tarci at the Forrest Glen service station and are appealing to anyone who was in the area who may have seen him or his vehicle on the morning of August 5, or anyone who may have relevant dashcam footage, to urgently contact police.

Tarci’s vehicle was subsequently located on a 4WD track in the Brooloo State Forest area on Monday (August 8), following a report from a member of the public.

An extensive search operation through thick bushland and difficult terrain was launched and continued over the last four days. However, the search has so far failed to locate any sign of Mr Carey.

Anyone with information regarding Tarci’s whereabouts is urged to contact police.
