Warren Richard LONG

 

DOB: 1972
HAIR: Brown BUILD: Solid EYES: Blue  
5'8" (169cm) tall, quietly spoken. 
Was wearing work clothes...white shirt, black pants, black shoes.
 
CIRCUMSTANCES:
Warren was last seen at Drummoyne, Sydney on 15 March, 1993. He left his place of work and has not been seen or heard from by family or friends since.
This is totally out of character for him and there are grave concerns for his safety and welfare. 
Warren's car and a brief note were found at Watson's Bay by Warren's friends on March 17th.

However, there have  been possible sightings of Warren since that date in Queensland.

Reported missing to: Drummoyne Police Station.

I have had the pleasure of speaking with Warren's Mum Judy and she told me what a wonderful son Warren is, and how dreadfully his family misses him.

Here are some words from Judy - "We look for him everywhere. These kind of situations are extremely hard on all family members....our daughter Kerrie is sad that he is not around to enjoy her children. For myself, I live with hope because no matter how hard I try I just can't see him taking his own life but a very tiny corner of my mind says perhaps he did and that hurts because you think you know your own children."

These are Judy's words:


Warren was working at Drummoyne Sailing Club in Sydney as casual barman whilst at university (we lived in Drummoyne and my husband was a Director of the club). On the night he disappeared he told us that he had booked the auditorium at the club for his 21st which would have been in December 1993 and asked us to keep his dinner hot. We have not heard from our son since that phone call.

We tried to report him missing the next morning 16th March to Drummoyne Police Station and were told we have to wait 24hrs (which is rubbish). On Wednesday 17th March 1993 about 3pm a friend of ours who happened to be Chief Inspector at Rose Bay Police knocked on our door to tell us that Warren's car and a brief note had been found at Watson's Bay by Warren's friends. Nothing else was ever found....no watch, keys, wallet or body.

Pat and I agreed to go on "Australia's Most Wanted" and from that several people contacted Crimestoppers to say they had met him....Gold Coast and Cairns. These people were consequently sent photos and videos and they all say it was definitely our son. We and our daughter Kerrie plus some other family members have travelled to Cairns at different times...shown his photo around...couple of people in Cairns said they had definitely seen &/or met him....so we live with our hope that perhaps one day........

I have had a lot to do with the NSW Missing Persons Unit based at Parramatta especially in the first few years....appearing on several TV programmes especially during Missing Persons Week and also agreed to talk to police who were training as Missing Persons Liaison Officers within normal police stations. There is a lot more I could go on with....like all the phone calls we used to get in Sydney where no one spoke....a letter from Centrelink addressed to Warren and mailed to our address on the NSW Mid North Coast which the police Missing Persons Unit followed up but said was just an error on Centrelink's part...who knows?

We look for him everywhere. These kind of situations are extremely hard on all family members....our daughter Kerrie is sad that he is not around to enjoy her children. For myself, I live with hope because no matter how hard I try I just can't see him taking his own life but a very tiny corner of my mind says perhaps he did and that hurts because you think you know your own children.
Regards
and many, many thanks......Judy and Pat Long
