ON the morning of June 11, 2014, Nikolce "Nick" Veljanovski went missing.
Then 28, Mr Veljanovski left a house on Allum Street, Yagoona, about 9am driving his blue Honda Jazz to the Royal National Park at Bundeena, and was last seen on Beachcomber Avenue about 12.15pm. His vehicle was found at the park about 7.45am on Thursday, June 12, 2014, after which police undertook land, air and water searches of the area.
There have been numerous sightings of him over the past four years, which have been investigated. Despite extensive efforts though, he has not been found.
The Coroner has found Mr Veljanovski died either on, or sometime after, June 11, 2014, with the location, manner and cause of death being unknown.
Mr Veljanovski is one of 30 long-term missing people from around the nation being profiled by the Australian Federal Police and NSW Police on social media and outdoor advertising as part of National Missing Persons Week.
"It's important that we raise awareness of this issue, including the reasons why people go missing, the social and financial impacts, and how the community can get involved," AFP Deputy Commissioner Neil Gaughan said.
"This might mean taking an interest and sharing our social media posts, or sharing a photo of an outdoor advertisement. After all, the community is our eyes and ears in these cases, helping police find the many thousands of people who go missing each year."
The Veljanovski family are devastated and desperately want information about their son. The family has posted a large reward for any information which leads to his whereabouts.
If you have information on the disappearance of Mr Veljanovski, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. For further information, visit missingpersons.gov.au.
