Search for missing Melbourne man continues

·1-min read

A parkland search in Melbourne's southeast has failed to shed any light on the suspicious disappearance of Brendon Farrell.

Victoria Police said nothing of significance was found on Tuesday during their search in Cranbourne.

The 32-year-old was reported missing on June 2 by his family.

He was last seen by a friend on the afternoon of May 31 at his home, at the rear of a building on Kidds Rd in Doveton.

Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper last week said he believed a "significant violent event" took place at the property that day.

Mr Farrell's phone and bank accounts have not been accessed since May 31 and one of his two bicycles remains missing.

Detectives from the missing person squad extended their search for Mr Farrell on Tuesday to include the parkland off Cemetery Rd in Cranbourne.

They were joined by officers from the public order response team and mounted branch, while drones were also used to search the area.

They expect to search the vicinity of the parkland again soon.

Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who has information about an altercation at the Kidds Rd property on May 31 or has knowledge of who was present at the time.

Mr Farrell spent time in jail for a minor crime and had been taking ice for about nine years.

His family is concerned he may have been in danger due to the company he kept while maintaining his drug habit.
