Police appeal for help in search for missing man

VIDEO: Police divers search for clues into missing Bay man

POLICE divers have found a shoe and a hat during a two day search for clues into the whereabouts of missing Hervey Bay man Anthony Dixon.

The Queensland Police Service dive squad have been scouring the water and mangroves in the Pulgul Creek area for clues about Mr Dixon's disappearance in March this year.

Mr Dixon was last seen getting into a taxi at the Kondari Hotel, Urangan on March 31.

He has not been in contact with friends or family since.

Hervey Bay police plain clothes Senior Constable Tim Visentin said the shoe and hat would be sent for forensic testing but it was not believed the items were linked to Mr Dixon's appearance.

"The search is being done to canvass all the areas near where he lived," Snr Const Visentin said.

"We are still hoping he is alive."

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Mr Dixon should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Police Link on 131 444.
