Police not letting up in Robert and Chantal's disappearance

WHILE the public may not hear about it in the news every day, solving the murder of Robert Martinez and Chantal Barnett remains at the forefront of a dedicated police team at Rockhampton.

Acting Superintendent Darrin Shadlow, the Regional Crime Co-ordinator, said investigations into the disappearance and murder of the missing Rockhampton pair was ongoing.

"We still have the total commitment from the homicide investigation unit and a number of local detectives dedicated to the case," Acting Supt Shadlow said.

He said the number of detectives delegated to the case depended on the amount of information filtered in from the public.

"There is still some information coming in, although we are still appealing to the public for more and we encourage them to contact Crime Stoppers if they know anything ... we are moving forward with it," he said.

Senior Sergeant Ben Carroll said police believed there were people in the community who were fully aware of what happened.

"We ask them to have the courage and fortitude to talk to police and come forward with information," Snr Sgt Carroll said.

Police have already followed up 1300 lines of inquiry in the eight months since the pair went missing in March.

Last month, police used a human remains detection dog to try to locate the bodies, searching an area of land at Port Curtis as a result of information received from the public.

If you have information about Robert and Chantal's disappearance, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
