Police renew calls for public assistance to locate missing man Nathan Booth

ACT Policing is renewing its call for public assistance to locate missing 40-year-old man Nathan Booth.

Nathan has not been seen or heard from since June 2019, with his last confirmed location being in the area of The Canberra Hospital.

He is described as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander in appearance, about 179cm (5’10”) tall, with a medium build, short dark brown hair, and dark brown eyes.

Detective Acting Station Sergeant Mark Rowswell said police hold serious concerns for Nathan’s welfare.

“Nathan was reported missing in September, and while he does not always make regular contact with his family and friends, they usually know through the grapevine that he is safe,” Detective Acting Station Sergeant Rowswell said.

“By modern standards, Nathan leaves a very small digital footprint, which has presented challenges for police in locating him.

“As such, police are relying heavily on information from the public to determine Nathan’s whereabouts.

“Police are also concerned about some misinformation in the community that Nathan has been found. This is not the case, and police are continuing enquiries to locate him.

“Our message for Nathan is to please let your family know you are safe, or to contact police.”

Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to call 0457 844 917; or contact ACT Policing operations on 131 444; or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6434580. Information can be provided anonymously.
