Fears grow for missing dad
Fears grow for missing dad

Friends of missing Wanneroo father David Blenkinsopp held grave fears for the 30-year-old roofer yesterday as police searched his street for clues to his disappearance.

Mr Blenkinsopp was last seen about 1.45am on March 4 when he kissed his wife goodnight before walking a female friend to her home on Taywood Drive. He told his wife Dianna he would be 15 minutes.

Rosalita Marshall, who once shared a home with Mr Blenkinsopp, said it was out of character for him not to contact family and friends and she feared he was a victim of foul play.

Ms Marshall said the friend Mr Blenkinsopp walked home was her cousin but another woman approached them and Mr Blenkinsopp walked off with that woman.

A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said Mr Blenkinsopp was always willing to help people.

Police searched bushes, drains and gardens and used a metal detector near Mr Blenkinsopp's home.

Mr Blenkinsopp is 183cm, of medium height, muscular build, with fair skin, shaved head, blue eyes and a reddish-brown moustache and goatee.
