Police update 4: Search continues for missing man in Daintree

The mother of a 29-year-old Victorian man reported missing in the Daintree last month has made a public appeal for information as police continue searching for the man.

Milan Lemic (pictured) was last seen next to his bogged utility at Bairds Crossing on the afternoon of Sunday, December 22.

He is described as being Caucasian, approximately 191cm tall, with a proportionate build, longer collar length brown hair and unkempt facial hair.

Extensive searches of the Daintree area involving police and SES personnel have failed to locate the man.

Following a review of information provided about a possible sighting of the man carrying a sports bag on December 26, police and SES volunteers searched an area surrounding Pioneers Park in Daintree Village again thismorning.

There were no signs of the man within today’s search zone.

Milan’s mother, Yana Lemic, who travelled from Victoria in the days following his disappearance, recorded a public appeal for information which was released by police today.

“We care deeply about our son and simply wish to know that he’s ok,” Ms Lemic said.

“We urge anyone who has seen Milan or who has any in

formation about where he might be to please come forward.

“We are so incredibly thankful for everyone who has helped in the search for Milan.”
