POLICE have sent teams of searchers hunting for clues in relation to the murder of a 62-year-old Burnett Heads man in April.

The search, which started yesterday near a rest area on the Isis Highway, got under way as police released the pictures of two people they believe have information relating to the slaying of Robin Behrendorff.

About 20 SES volunteers patrolled bushland in a long line from about 9am, searching for information in relation to the murder.

Bundaberg police Detective Senior Sergeant Joe Hildred said the hunt was on along the route from Burnett Heads to Toowoomba.

“Similar searches at various locations have been conducted between Burnett Heads and Toowoomba,” he said.

“No stone is being left unturned.”

Mr Behrendorff was found dead in his home in Baldry St, Burnett Heads, on Good Friday, April 22.

For the first time since then, police confirmed yesterday that they were now investigating a murder.

A post mortem revealed Mr Behrendorff died from a severe trauma.

A crime scene was created at a Toowoomba home the day after Mr Behrendorff's body was found.

Police also hope the public can help them locate two people they believe will be able to assist their investigation.

The man and woman were caught on CCTV at a service station on Moore St, Goomeri, about 6am on Good Friday.

They were driving a gold or bronze-coloured 1994 Nissan Pulsar sedan.

Police are asking anyone with any information on the pair, or on Mr Behrendorff's death, to call Bundaberg Police on 41539111 or Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
