Police say possessions belonging to 29-year-old Luke Davies were found just after 11am on Wednesday in a skip-bin on Wilbar Avenue, Cronulla.

Following inquiries, officers attached to Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command attended Baird’s home in Brown Street, Paddington, about 1pm yesterday. After entering the property, officers immediately established a crime scene. Police then attended Luke’s home in Waterloo.

The disappearance of both men is being treated as suspicious. Investigators are now trying to determine the whereabouts of 26-year-old Baird, and 29-year-old Davies.

Information indicates Luke was in Paddington on Monday. He has not been seen since, his family have been unable to contact him, and he has not been at work. Luke is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 170cm-175cm tall with a medium build, brown hair and brown eyes. It’s not known what he was wearing at the time.

Jesse is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 180cm to 185cm tall with a muscular build, brown hair and brown eyes. It’s not known what he was wearing at the time.

At a media conference this afternoon Eastern Suburbs Commander Detective Superintendent Jodi Radmore said they were treating it a suspicious disappearance, and at this stage were not ruling out any lines of inquiries to what may have occurred leading up to the pair’s disappearance.

“We do believe from the crime scene at Paddington and from property that was located at Cronulla, that there has more than likely be some sort of incidence that has more than likely occurred at the Paddington address. That has given us grave concerns for one, possibly both their safety.” she said.

Police confirmed blood had been found at both the Paddington address and the Cronulla location, and witnesses near the Paddington address reported hearing some shouting at the vicinity of the address early on Monday morning.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about Luke or Jesse’s whereabouts – or who may have information relevant to the investigation – to contact Waverley Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Initial reporting on this story focused on Davies as police were legally unable to release Baird’s name until they had located his next of kin. Baird worked as a reporter at Chanel Ten initially on the children’s show Totally Wild, and later as an entertainment reporter on Studio 10.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available. 22-02-24 1:45pm Information updated following police media conference.
