NO stone was left unturned yesterday after a Mount Isa Police and State Emergency Service volunteers scoured the city and surrounds for any sign of missing teenager Kyle Coleman.
The 17-year-old was reported missing by his family on Sunday morning.
He was last seen on Saturday at 6am when he left a friend’s house in Soldiers Hill with a green swag and a backpack.
Search efforts were focused on the Leichhardt River bed between the Alma Street Crossing and 23rd Avenue yesterday after an RACQ NQ Rescue Helicopter Service patrol of the river bed proved unsuccessful the night before.
Mount Isa Mines divers were brought in to search deeper sections of the river while a number of community members volunteered their time to search the banks and surrounding streets with Mount Isa Police and SES volunteers.
The Junction was also searched on foot and with vehicles to cover any areas Kyle might have visited from the time he went missing.
Mount Isa Police Inspector Trevor Kidd said the search effort would resume this morning to help police piece together where Kyle went after setting out from Soldiers Hill on Saturday morning.
“This is an issue we face, trying to piece together accurate information about what has occurred and that’s why we’re continuing to speak with Kyle’s family and friends,” he said.
“It’s very important to get an idea of what his movements were and where he was planning to go.
“We’re concerned, the family is concerned and that’s why we’re going down this track.”
The Coleman family declined to comment on the search efforts yesterday and asked the public respect their privacy during the search for their son.
At the time of print, investigations into Kyle’s disappearance were ongoing.
Anyone with information regarding Kyle’s disappearance should contact the Mount Isa Police Station on 4744 1140 or CrimeStoppers via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers南京夜网.au.
