Police are appealing for public help to locate a man with a mental age of a child, who has been missing from his north-western Sydney home for three days.

Phillip Theakston was last seen outside his Baulkham Hills home late on the afternoon of Wednesday 29 October.

The 24-year-old failed to arrive at his St Marys workplace the following morning.

Family reported Phillip missing at Castle Hill Police Station about 8.30pm on Thursday 30 October but, despite an extensive search, he has not yet been located.

Phillip is described as being of white/European appearance, about 157cm tall, with a large build and weighing about 126kg. He has fair hair and blue/grey eyes.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing brown bike shorts underneath blue basketball shorts, which had white and navy blue stripes down the side. He was also wearing a green singlet and blue shirt with yellow stripes.

His family have told police he suffers from a number of medical conditions which require ongoing medication and that he has the mental age of a nine or 10-year-old. For these reasons, police and family hold concerns for Phillip’s welfare.

Phillip is known to frequent railway stations and railway lines; his description has been circulated to NSW Police Force Commuter Crime Units and rail staff.

Any members of the public who have seen Phillip or who know his whereabouts are urged to contact Castle Hill Police Station on 02 9680 5399 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
