FOR the parents of missing Rosanna man Paul Wright, the past nine years have been hell.
There hasn’t been a day since the 35-year-old went missing from his home that the couple have not tortured themselves with thoughts like what they could have done.
“I’m not a person to say ‘yes, it’s society’s fault’, as a parent it’s my fault to a large degree,” father Nick Wright said.
“It’s the sense of not knowing, the sense of not being able to contact him, not being able to help him.”
Reopening the case last week, Doncaster police detective Sgt Vasilios Chrisant appealed to the public to help the Camberwell couple find some answers.
“Just one piece of information could be enough to solve this case,” Sgt Chrisant said.
Mr Wright was last seen at his Rosanna Rd rental home on Tuesday, September 30, 2003.
He wasn’t an angel, his father was the first to admit that.
It was after some trouble with the police that Paul disappeared.
But whatever else he was, he was a son and brother, and those who loved him just wanted to know where he was, Mr Wright said.
“He (Paul) was not unaccustomed to being in a bit of trouble but to go missing was out of the ordinary,” Mr Wright said.
“He was a hard young man at 15 or 16, but as an adult, I was starting to enjoy his company, having a red with him and enjoy life with him.
“Just to know what happened would completely change our lives.”
