NSW Police believe he may be able to assist with their inquiries into the disappearance of a man from the Grafton area.

On Friday, 27 May, 2016, Patrick Raymond Kear, aged 51, was reported missing to police after concerns were raised due to Mr Kear not returning to his Parker Road, Lanitza home for some time.

The last confirmed sighting of Mr Kear reported to police was in late January 2016. However, he is known to frequent the Armidale area and may also be in Queensland. Concerns are held for Mr Kear's welfare as he suffers a medical condition.

Strike Force Noorinan was established to investigate Kear's disappearance. Following investigations, detectives released the CCTV image of a man who may be able to assist with their inquiries, and are re-appealing for public assistance as they continue to search for the missing man.

The man shown is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of medium stocky build, and with short dark hair. He is shown wearing a navy blue shirt, blue shorts, and thongs.
