Warren Meyer

A reward of up to $200,000 is being offered by the Meyer family for the discovery of the remains of Warren Meyer.

Warren has been missing since Easter Sunday, 23 rd March 2008, after intending to walk 3 hours or so from the Dom Dom Saddle car park in the Yarra Ranges, which is a 15 minute drive north of Healesville. His intended 5 km in and 5 km out' walk commenced before 8.00am.

Warren was a tall, 57 years old. His facial characteristics included a moustache and rimless glasses. He was wearing a blue baseball cap, khaki shorts, the same colour t-shirt and wearing a light black jacket. He carried with him a black back pack and bright yellow GPS. His white Subaru Forester was found in the high end of the Dom Dom Saddle car park, just a short distance from the Black Spur Road. He spoke with a Canadian accent.

Even though there were 3 official searches in 2008, and the family/friends extensive searches over 2 years, nothing belonging to Warren has ever been found. In his back pack he carried food, water, metal thermos and cup, a fully charged phone, at least one map, a whistle, matches, a small book, batteries and other sundry items including a second pair of prescription sunglasses- all the ingredients to ensure a safe and uncomplicated hike. An entrenched habit of preparing like this extended back over more than 30 years of regular hiking. The family knew Warren to be conservative in the way he approached even the simplest of hikes, this one with wide roads/tracks with firebreaks throughout was simpler than most hikes undertaken by him. The weather was warm and sunny. All indications are that everything about Easter Sunday was favourable for an enjoyable morning's hike.

The family believes that other(s) are responsible for Warren's demise. Being Easter it was very busy in the general area of Dom Dom Saddle and there could have been unusual behaviour observed by others on that Easter Sunday, occurrences taking place that may not have registered as being important either then or now. In particular, the family is keen to speak to any campers, trail bike riders, and hikers etc. who may have witnessed/heard illegal and excessive levels of shooting taking place in or near the water catchment area. In addition the family is keen for a trail bike rider to come forward who spoke to a disorientated man in his mid 30's who was asking for help in the general area.

The family struggles to cope with the loss of a loving husband and father who has disappeared in the most tragic of circumstances. Through public assistance we are hoping that some resolution may ultimately come, that Warren's remains will be found, and with this answers also forthcoming.

The $200,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of Warren's remains will be withdrawn permanently on Easter Sunday 2018.
