Missing man's family makes anxious appeal for info


THE family of a missing Goondiwindi man has made an anxious appeal for any information as to his whereabouts after he was last seen more than a week ago.

Kaylah Johnson reported her father, Terry Lloyd, missing with Goondiwindi police on Thursday, November 26.

He has not been seen or made contact with family since, prompting a widespread social media campaign for any information.

"He's in a pretty bad state of mind, I think," Mrs Johnson said, adding her father suffered a medical condition.

"We don't know where he could possibly be, but it's definitely not like him to take off."

Goondiwindi police are working with their NSW counterparts after Mr Lloyd's bank was last accessed at Narrabri last Thursday.

Mr Lloyd is believed to have left Goondiwindi last Thursday and travelled to Toowoomba.

Mrs Johnson believes Mr Lloyd then travelled to Brisbane before heading to Narrabri.

Bank records placed Mr Lloyd in Narrabri, about 225km southwest of Goondiwindi, last week.

Mr Lloyd is believed to have been driving a black 2005 model Toyota RAV4 with Queensland registration 072JQF.

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


Search to resume today near Narrabri for missing Qld man Terry Lloyd



AN EXTENSIVE search of bushland near Narrabri is expected to resume this morning to find a missing Queensland man.

Police and emergency services will return to the co-ordinated search zone near Gwabegar in an effort to find Terry Lloyd, who disappeared in late November.

Concerned family and friends reported him missing from Goondiwindi, Queensland, but police said he was last seen in the Pilliga area on November 25.

On December 2, police were called to reports of a car crashed into a tree in the Pilliga Forest, west of Gwabegar, and found a black Toyota RAV4, owned by Mr Lloyd that had hit a tree.

The Toyota was unoccupied, a search was commenced in the vicinity of the RAV4, but no one was located.

Searches involving local police, trail-bike officers, PolAir, SES crews, the RFS and the National Parks and Wildlife Service were carried out last week and into the weekend, before it was suspended on Sunday.

Yesterday, Barwon police said search zones had been identified and would resume this morning.

Investigators and family have concerns for Mr Lloyd’s welfare and are appealing for anyone who may have seen him in the area or who has information that may assist with locating him, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Family won’t give up searching for their missing father

THE family of missing Goondiwindi man Terry Lloyd refuses to give up hope he will return.

Tomorrow will mark two weeks since Mr Lloyd last made contact with his family.

But despite the lack of contact, and a targeted search of rugged bushland in north-western NSW, the family remains hopeful.

Daughter Kaylah Johnson, who lives in Western Australia, has anxiously waited for any news about her father who was reported missing on November 25.

She said she knew he had been in Narrabri days after he was last seen at his home in Goondiwindi - a fact which had been confirmed by CCTV footage of him accessing his accounts in the small NSW rural town.

His car, a black Toyota RAV4, was found damaged near Gwabegar, a small town about 350km south of Goondiwindi, but the damage to the vehicle was not enough to have claimed his life.

The discovery, late last week, prompted a land and air search for any sign of Mr Lloyd but, despite the extensive amount of time spent looking for any clue as to his whereabouts, Mrs Johnson said she refused to give up hope.

Search crews rested yesterday with the intention of scouring more rugged terrain today in the hope of finding Mr Lloyd.

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


Mystery deepens over missing father

THE search for a missing Goondiwindi man in the Pilliga south of Narrabri re-commences today (Wednesday, December 9).

The NSW State Emergency Service and other volunteers had a rest day yesterday after searching thick scrub for the 51 year-old since Wednesday.

They will be joined by Police with sniffer dogs from Sydney tomorrow.

Concern for the father and grandfather, Terry  Lloyd, grew after his car was found abandoned in the Pilliga Forest.

Terry is a familiar face to many in Goondiwindi.

A former local with many family ties, he also worked  for Care Goondiwindi’s Medico Run before it ceased due to lack of funding, and is a man known for his kindness.  

Now police want your help to return him to his family.

“We are sure that he is fine but at the same time we are very concerned, as it is not like him to do this to his family,” Terry’s daughter Kaylah Johnson said. That was Tuesday of last week.

Terence Lloyd, 51, was reported missing from Goondiwindi, Queensland, and was last seen on Wednesday, November 25, 2015, in the Pilliga area, however he has not been seen or heard from since.

Police responded to reports of a car into a tree in the Pilliga Forest, west of Gwabegar, about 85km north of Coonabarabran, on Wednesday.

Police arrived at the location and found a black Toyota RAV4, owned by Mr Lloyd that had crashed into a tree.

The Toyota was unoccupied, a search was begun in the vicinity of the RAV4, however no-one was found.

Inside the car there was no wallet, no overnight bag or luggage just his glasses. 

Terry didn't take his mobile phone with him when he left, he simply took his wallet and his bank cards.

"We know from his bank account he has been from Goondiwindi to Toowoomba to Brisbane to Narrabri."

Police cannot confirm if Mr Lloyd was driving the car at the time of the accident but also cannot speculate if there was another driver.

However Police have confirmed a sighting of Terry on cctv in Narrabri on November 25. Land and air searching resumed on Thursday and Friday in the area with the help of local police, trail bike officers, PolAir, State Emergency Service (SES), and the National Parks and Wildlife Service. A Facebook Page has been set up by Terry's family, with a video and posts that can be shared through social media and on email:https://www.facebook.com/Helpusfindterry/?fref=ts

If anyone has seen him in the area or have information that may assist with locating him are urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

POLICE sniffer dogs from Sydney’s central command have been brought in to help find any trace of missing Goondiwindi man Terry Lloyd.

By Tara Miko


POLICE sniffer dogs from Sydney's central command have been brought in to help find any trace of missing Goondiwindi man Terry Lloyd.

The search will centre on the rough Pilliga forest area south of Narrabri after police located Mr Lloyd's vehicle in the area last week.

It had crashed into a tree and police said it was slightly damaged but not enough to cause critical injuries.

Mr Lloyd's glasses were found inside the vehicle but it is believed his wallet, overnight bag or luggage were not found in the car.

Mr Lloyd, 51, was reported missing from Goondiwindi more than two weeks ago and CCTV footage from an ATM confirmed he had travelled to Narrabri by November 25.

His family has refused to give up hope the father and grandfather would return, with missing person posters being put up around the region.

The extensive search has involved regional police, trail bike officers, NSW PolAir, SES and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service rangers.

Anyone with information, or who may have seen Mr Lloyd, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.


Search for missing Southern Downs father called off

11th Dec 2015 5:00 AM - Warwick Daily News

TERRY Lloyd's family is making a scrapbook of newspaper clippings and social media comments of support that will be handed over when he returns home.

Though they don't know when that will be, Mr Lloyd's family refuses to think anything negative and hold out hope he hitched a ride with someone driving down the same dirt road on which he crashed his 4WD two weeks ago.

That's the scenario Mr Lloyd's daughter, Kaylah Johnson, has clung to and has been buoyed by stories of other missing persons who have returned home months later.

"It's hard not to think the negative way too often where there is not much leading us to him," Mrs Johnson said.

"But it's just good to know that people have come home after a couple of months.

"We've got nothing. We've been told no-one goes down that road and it's not really used.

"Maybe this was just the one time a person happened to drive past and pick him up."

Authorities called off the search which scoured the 40km radius around where Mr Lloyd's 4WD was found two weeks ago near the Pilliga forest in north-west NSW.

"The lack of any signs or clues as to his whereabouts has been a sort of comfort for the family," Mrs Johnson said.

"We kind of figure that if they haven't found anything already he must not be there."

While the search has been called off, the social media campaign to bring Mr Lloyd will continue.

"We don't really know where to go from here," Mrs Johnson said.

"We'll have to rely on social media, I guess."

She thanked all members of the search party for their help over the past two weeks.

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

No news for families of two missing Goondiwindi men

 | 9th Jan 2016 5:00 AM Warwick Daily News

ONE day he was there, the next he was gone.

It's the situation the families of two Goondiwindi men are grappling with, as they desperately search for their missing loved ones.

The latest is 20-year-old Matthew Woods, who was last seen near the Goondiwindi Showgrounds on Monday.

Mr Woods has severe depression and his family is concerned for his physical and mental welfare.

While the search for Mr Woods begins, another Goondiwindi family holds out hope their beloved father will come home.

For Terry Lloyd's family, it's been 47 painstaking days - 47 days of hoping he will walk through the door.

Daughter Kaylah Johnson said it had very difficult and the family was trying to hang in.

Christmas was different for the family. It was Mr Lloyd's grandson's first Christmas.

"Not having him there had a big impact," Mrs Johnson told the Daily News.

"I'm actually in Western Australia but I'm due home in the first week of February - hopefully he is home then."

In the 47 days since Mr Lloyd's disappearance his family have no leads, no indication of where he is.

All they have is hope and positive thoughts that the father-of-seven is out there somewhere safe and sound.

"What more can we do without a lead?" Mrs Johnson said.

"We're trying to keep the word out there are much as possible.

"As much as it's hard to, we're still staying positive - he's got to be out there somewhere."

Mr Lloyd was last seen in Goondiwindi on November 26.

His black Toyota RAV4 was found damaged near Gwabegar, a small town about 350km south of Goondiwindi.

Despite an extensive land and air search, police found no sign of the 51-year-old.

Family say it was out of character for Mr Lloyd to just take off like he did.

Mrs Johnson said her dad was always there for the family.

"He's a very caring person towards anyone," she said.

"He'd just about help anyone who asks.

"Anyone who does know him, they know how much of a caring person he is."

The family have now turned to social media and posters in the hope somebody has seen Mr Lloyd, somewhere.

A Facebook page - Help us find our dad - Terry Lloyd - has almost 2000 likes.

The page is calling on people to "light the way home for Terry" by leaving their outside lights on until he returns home.

Every few days an update is posted on the page, along with cherished family photos and memories.

Mrs Johnson said the family was also focussing on getting posters to businesses.

"Someone drove from Goondiwindi to Parkes and they didn't see much about dad," she said.

"Obviously people who don't use social media don't know anything about it."

Interested businesses can get in touch with Mrs Johnson by phoning 0497 294 007 or emailing C-K_Johnson@ hotmail.com.

While the official police search for Mr Lloyd has wound down, the search for Mr Woods continues.

Mr Woods' cousin Adam Robinson posted on social media saying family members had tried to call his phone, but nobody answered.

"He has severe depression and we are worried for his physical and mental welfare," he said.

"He walked out of the Goondiwindi Hospital in the morning but has left his medication."

The 20-year-old has no belongings with him.

He is likely to be wearing dark clothing.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen either man or anyone who has any information regarding their whereabouts, to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.


Invisible Friends campaign features missing Pilliga man Terry Lloyd

A new campaign to find missing people using Facebook’s facial recognition technology features Goondiwindi man Terry Lloyd, who disappeared in 2015.

Mr Lloyd’s daughter Kaylah Johnson said she and her siblings had “jumped” at the chance to take part in the groundbreaking project, Invisible Friends.

She has urged Facebook users to add the Invisible Friends profiles of her dad and the other nine featured missing people.

The hope is, through the power of social networking, the photos and videos of up to 1.5 million people will be able to be searched – electronically and automatically – for the faces of the missing people.

“It’s a great idea, and we’re pretty determined to jump at anything we’re given the opportunity to participate in,” Mrs Johnson said.

“If you’d been through what we’re going through, you’d know you would do just about anything to bring your person home.

“We’d give anything to get our dad home.”

The world-first campaign, developed by whiteGREY Australia for Missing Persons Advocacy Network (MPAN), aims to harness Facebook’s facial recognition and auto-tagging technology in the search for missing people.

Even if the missing person appears only in the background of a photo or video, the Facebook algorithm will auto-tag their Invisible Friends profile and notify MPAN.

Mrs Johnson said it could be a long shot, but “you’re never going to know unless you give it a go”.

“Facial recognition on Facebook is a pretty strong thing to go off … so I believe if someone was to post a photo, we’d find him if he was in it,” she said.

Mr Lloyd, then 51, went missing on November 24, 2015, after telling his family he was going to buy some fuel and food.

His vehicle was found a little more than a week later in the Pilliga Forest about 150km south of Narrabri, crashed into a tree.

Despite an extensive search of the area by police, SES volunteers, NSW Fire & Rescue, Mr Lloyd wasn’t found.

He has had no contact with family or friends and hasn’t touched his bank account.

Come home, Poppy

Mrs Johnson said she and her six siblings “deal with it together” but “not a day goes by we’re not trying to do something to help find him”.

Mr Lloyd has several grandchildren, but the youngest few have never met him.

In fact, Mrs Johnson is pregnant with a boy, due in September – it will be her first child and she said she would give anything for his Poppy to be home with them.

“We carry on now with our lives – we have to, he’d want us to,” she said.

“Not a day goes by without him crossing our minds, but he wouldn’t want us to dwell on this to the point we can’t cope with everyday life.

“My sister got married last year, another one is being married in July, and the brothers had to step up and take Dad’s place to walk them down the aisle.

“On days like that, it hits us all pretty badly – when children are brought into the world, when we have exciting news we want to tell him about …

“But I’m sure when he comes home, he’ll be stoked to see how far we’ve come and the families that we’re raising.”

MPAN director Loren O’Keeffe said Invisible Friends was “an ingenious way to put artificial intelligence to work for a good cause, and carry out a task humans simply aren’t capable of”.

“By searching through billions of posts per week, we’re not only raising awareness for the devastated families of these missing people, but also hope to put an end to their ambiguous loss, the most stressful type of grief.”

Family’s heartache as beloved father missing without a trace

When hunters discovered a lone car crashed into a tree deep within a New South Wales forest, the only sign of the driver was a pair of spectacles found on the back seat.
It was the evening of Tuesday, November 24, 2015, when Terry Lloyd, a Queensland father to seven, grabbed the keys to his black Toyota RAV4 and headed out.
Mr Lloyd and one of his daughters had just dropped him back to his home from a doctor’s appointment and he was keen to grab some takeaway food for dinner and petrol for his car.
As he left his Goondiwindi home, the then 51-year-old uttered the words he had regularly showered on his children: “I love you”.
It has been more than three years since Mr Lloyd’s family and friends have heard from him.
The last known sighting of the beloved dad and grandfather was the following day, November 25, when CCTV footage showed him paying for petrol at a service station in Narrabri, NSW - some 227km from his home.
On December 2 that same year, police were called to the scene of a car crash within the Pilliga forest, south of Narrabri. Media reports at the time indicated the damage to the vehicle was slight and not enough to cause life-threatening injuries. Yet, there has still been no sign of Mr Lloyd.
“We have zero idea of why he could have gone there,” Danielle Blanchard, one of Mr Lloyd’s daughters, told nine.com.au, adding the family has no connection to NSW.
“The weird thing was that his glasses were on the back seat.”
Ms Blanchard and her six siblings have spent the past three years searching for their father.
“Usually he would call us every single day, he would go around every day,” she said, the cheery sounds of her young son playing nearby, echoing down the phone line. 
Ms Blanchard said the family first realised something was amiss on November 26, 2015 when Mr Lloyd, who suffered from bipolar and was a fan of a “Dad joke”, failed to contact her twin sisters for their birthday.
“He’s a most caring person. He’s always willing to help anyone out… and is very family oriented,” she said of her father.
“He suffered from bipolar and managed it really well. He’s never gone missing and he’ll go for a drive for a few hours and he’ll never go missing for a couple of days.”
To further illustrate the lengths Mr Lloyd would go for his family, Ms Blanchard said the year before her dad went missing one of his daughters moved to Western Australia and “he phoned her every single day for a year” to help her remain connected to their tight-knit family.
She said her father was also “the first single male to get custody of children that weren’t his in Queensland” following the breakdown of a relationship.
“He’s really family oriented and we’re all really close,” she said, her voice flooded with emotion.
“It’s just really hard. I just had my first baby when he went missing… and I’ve had a second and … we’d love for him to see him.”
In the days and weeks following his Mr Lloyd’s disappearance, NSW Police mapped out a 15km radius of the crash site to search for him both on land and by air.
“The detective in charge, Jason Dickinson, he was excellent,” Ms Blanchard said.
“He went forward and got land and air and helicopters with infrared and they got trackers. Just starting from where his car was found.”
However, as the years have passed, so has the time between searches.
“At the moment it feels like it’s a stop still and we haven’t had an undated on the case,” she said.
“But last we heard it (the case) was sitting with the Queensland coroner”.
Ms Blanchard pauses, her voice slightly faulting – the thought of her father’s missing person’s case being referred to a coroner after just three years is bewildering.
“I don’t know why (it’s with the coroner)… I’m not sure… it’s just the process,” she said.
“Our uncle, he goes down there, (into NSW) every now and then just to check in and we’ve made posters and stuff that we distribute around the area he went missing.”
Despite facing such a daily emotional hurdle, Ms Blanchard is adamant she and her siblings will never give up searching for their father. They have set up a Facebook page to help with the search.

“We just don’t know where to go from here. It’s hard to know where to look,” she said.
