MISSING man Keith Foggin may have picked up a hitchhiker before he went missing on his way to live with his daughter in Queensland.

The nice natured Mr Foggin, who had hitchhiked extensively himself, has not been seen since September 24.

His brother, Bruce, and daughter, Cassie, hold grave concerns for him.

Mr Foggin had picked up his unregistered station wagon from Bacchus Marsh before disappearing.

His bank account and phone have not been used.

His XD Falcon is also missing.

Bruce said his brother was looking forward to starting a new job as a truck driver.

“He was looking forward to moving and changing jobs,” he said.

But he said picking up hitchhikers was in his nature.

“Maybe (he did). He has hitched a lot in his life,” he said.

He said his brother enjoyed Jim Beam and was trusting.

His daughter Cassie said her father would call her most days.

Police confirmed they would look at hitchhiking as an avenue of inquiry and the route Mr Fogggin had taken.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.


Brother begs missing man Keith Foggin to 'please come home'

A distinctive grey car may help find a man missing for two weeks.

Keith Foggin​, 46, was last seen in Millbank Street, Bacchus Marsh, about 10.30am on Thursday, September 24.

An emotional Bruce Foggin urged his brother to "please come home."

Detective Sergeant Emma Lobb from the missing persons squad, said he had been due to pick up his car, which had been worked on, from there.

He had planned to leave the next day to drive to live with his daughter, Cassie, in Scarborough, Queensland.

He had recently worked at the Royal Melbourne Show and had found a new job as a truck driver.

There has been no contact since an 8am phone call with Cassie on September 24. Cassie and her uncle, Bruce Foggin, reported him missing on October 1.

Detective Sergeant Lobb said Keith had not used his phone or bank accounts since September 24.

Mr Foggin was described as Caucasian, 170cm tall, of medium build, with short dark hair, grey beard and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a grey hooded zip-up jacket, dark grey pants and thongs. 

Detective Sergeant Lobb said police had received information that Mr Foggin had collected his 1979 Ford Falcon XD station wagon, which is a distinctive grey undercoat colour, and has no registration plates.

Bruce Foggin called on Keith to "please contact police or Cassie .... we just want you to come home." He said his brother was trusting and "too nice".

Cassie Foggin said her father was happy and "talks to anyone" but he was also a "very private person".

She wasn't aware of any issues her father faced. The maximum father and daughter would go without speaking was three days, so the disappearance was out of character.

Detective Sergeant Lobb said anyone with information could call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
