Sean Walsh

Have you seen Sean?

26-year-old Irish National Sean Walsh, was last seen in the Randwick NSW area on Sunday 10th May 2009.

In 2007, Sean had left his home in Dungarvan, Ireland, on a round the world ticket. He had travelled throughout different countries before arriving in Australia in 2008.

Sean had been residing in a flat in Randwick NSW, which he was sharing with a flatmate. On the morning of the 10th May when Sean had not exited his bedroom his flatmate went to check on him and found his room empty. His clothes and mobile were in the room but no sign of Sean.

At the time of his disappearance, Sean was working as a carpet cleaner, and would often borrow the company van on weekends. Over the weekend Sean was last seen, he had borrowed the vehicle so he could go to book a ticket for an upcoming trip he had planned to visit his family in Ireland. On the Sunday morning, the company owner woke to find the van parked in his driveway unlocked, with the keys still in the ignition, and some of Sean's possessions, including his surfboard, wetsuit, rash vest, paperwork and a T-Shirt. However, there was no evidence to suggest where Sean may have gone.

Sean has not made contact with family or friends since this date, he failed to board the plane on Tuesday the 12th May as planned and has not accessed any of his bank accounts. His family are extremely concerned for his safety and welfare as it is completely out of character for Sean to just disappear.

Although police state there is no evidence to suggest foul play, investigations have failed to locate Sean or his movements after the 10th May.

Sean is described as standing 175cm tall with a thin build, shaved brown hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion. Sean was last seen wearing a Khaki coloured jumper, Khaki boardshorts and things. Sean would now be aged 33 years old.

If you have any information which may assist police please contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or The national Missing Persons Helpline on 1890 442 552.
