In a statement today, police said his disappearance was now being investigated as a suspected homicide.
Police said they had recently determined that the circusmtances of his disappearance were suspicious, but would not elaborate.
Mr Pollard was close to his family, police said.
Police have called for those with information into Mr Pollard's movements in the lead-up to his disappearance to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
