Bodalla State Forest to be searched for clues of missing man Ray Speechley


The family of missing Dalmeny man Ray Speechley will search  bushland in the Bodalla State Forest tomorrow morning, and are asking for help from the community. 

Mr Speechley, who has dementia, was living at the IRT aged care home at Dalmeny when he went missing three years ago, on the 7th of July 2016.  He was 77 years old. 

He was last seen on that day between 4.15pm and 4.30pm, walking north along the Princes Highway, 420 metres north of the Dalmeny turnoff, wearing blue jeans and a grey jacket.  

His family believe he may have been trying to get back to previous family homes at Wollongong. 

Anyone who can help in the search is asked to meet at 9am at Lawlers Creek Road. 


Police and Mr Speechley's family are still trying to locate the driver of a Red Honda Accord Euro who was seen stopped just south of the Narooma sawmill around the time Mr Speechley went missing.
