Police investigating the disappearance of Jeremiah “Jayo” Rivers in outback Queensland are searching for the occupants of a white car alleged to have been involved in several fuel drive-offs on the day the Warmun man was last seen.

Mr Rivers went missing under suspicious circumstances while camping with a group in south-west Queensland near Wippo Creek, about 20km south of Noccundra, on the morning of October 18.

Homicide detectives were brought in to investigate his disappearance early this month, and today released footage of a white Ford Focus believed to have fled from a service station about 900km from where the 27-year-old was last seen on the evening of October 18.

The same vehicle was seen leaving a service station 130km from Noccundra in Thargomindah late the following morning, and has since been seized from the Gold Coast.

Police have called for public assistance to help them identify the vehicle’s occupants or anyone who may have observed a Ford Focus travelling around south western Queensland bearing Queensland registration plates 600SZJ.

They’re also attempting to identify all persons who were in the area around Wippo Creek or Noccundra or travelled through western New South Wales and Queensland to Noccundra from October 16 to October 19.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
