Search For Bathurst Man Continues

Police have continued their investigations into the alleged murder of a local man four years ago by searching an abandoned mine shaft near Bathurst last week.

 Senior Constable Sue Thompson has the details:

“Investigators from Chifley Local Area Command formed Strike Force Renshaw to investigate the suspicious disappearance of Bathurst man, Andrew Russell.

The then 23-year-old was last seen about 8pm on the 2nd of June 2009, on Slim Street, Bathurst.

Two men – aged 25 and 26 – were charged with his murder in January this year.

Both men are currently before the courts.

Police Divers joined Strike Force investigators last Friday to search for evidence in an abandoned mine shaft near Sofala.

Previous searches for evidence have been conducted at a waste management site and a property at Sofala, as well as properties between the Bathurst and Mudgee areas without success”.
