We had a couple of posts on our Facebook page overnight about low flying helicopters returning and Police activity at Mulligans Flat.
It turns out a moutain bike rider has gone missing and there was a search on last night and again today.
The following is a media release from ACT Policing.
Search resumes for missing man
Release Date: Sunday, September 09 2012, 08:39 AM
ACT Policing’s Specialist Response Group, together with ACT Fire and rescue and State Emergency Service volunteers, has resumed searching today (Sunday, September 9) in the Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve area for a 42-year-old man missing since late yesterday afternoon.
The man, Michael Deering, was reported missing around 8.40pm last night after he failed to return to his Forde home. He had left home around 4.15pm yesterday to walk in the reserve.
Mr Deering is described as around 186cm (6’1”) tall, with a slim build, short brown hair, and glasses. He was wearing a puffy black jacket and jeans. Police are keen to speak with anyone who may have been walking or cycling in the Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve area yesterday and may have seen the person described, or could provide further information on 131-444.
A mountain biker was seen emerging from the reserve around 8.15pm and that person is urged to contact Police Operations on 131-444.
