Perth man Rigby Fielding still missing one year later

151030 Rigby Mark FIELDING WCOn August 12th it will be one year since concern was raised about the welfare of local community member Rigby Fielding.

Fielding was last seen in East Perth on Friday 14th August 2015 and has not made contact with family or friends since. His disappearance has been described as out of character.

Fielding was last seen when he visited a house in Goderich Street East Perth in the early afternoon of August 14th 2015. Police believe Mr Fielding may have been wearing washed out jeans and a grey jumper.

The 53 year old retired chef was living with his sister and mother in Rockingham but regularly spent time with friends in the city area.

Police have been treating his disappearance as a potential homicide since December last year.

Fielding’s sister Stephanie has renewed the call for people to come forward if they have any information about her brother’s disappearance.

“Someone knows what happened to Rig and we are pleading with them  to come forward so that we can have closure and say goodbye to him.

“With it nearly a year since he went missing and with no evidence to go on, it all feels a bit hopeless that we will ever know what happened.” Stephanie Fielding told OUTinPerth.

This week is National Missing Person’s week. More than one hundred Australians are reported missing every day, and while most are found quickly, many remain missing long term.

Research shows at least 12 people are directly impacted when someone goes missing – emotionally, psychologically, financially – almost half a million Australians every year.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
