The father of a 44-year-old man who has been missing for over two and half years has pleaded for information on his son's disappearance and suspected homicide.

Dean Anthony Pollard was last seen in late May 2010 in the vicinity of Lloyd Street and Railway Parade in Midland near his father Brian’s then business.

Mr Pollard revealed his son Dean was carrying a large amount of cash on him when they last met. He said he believed Dean was going to use the money to set himself up in Tasmania where he has a daughter from a previous relationship.

Mr Pollard said his son spoke of being “in a rut” and needing to make a fresh start prior to his disappearance.

He also said he had concerns about the company his adult son was keeping, including several people of questionable character he had a bad “gut feeling” about.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg McDonald from the major crime squad said the cash the 44-year-old was carrying when he was last seen has not been recovered.

“We don’t know where it is, obviously that is quite significant in terms of our investigation,” he said.

Detectives are treating Dean Pollard’s disappearance as a homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
