Cabbie who mysteriously vanished 30 years ago may have moved states
A Sydney taxi driver who mysteriously vanished 30 years ago may have travelled to Adelaide, according to authorities.
NSW Police have today issued a renewed appeal for information about the possible whereabouts of Melcom Arthur Cross, who was last seen on August 3, 1988 – then aged 40.
Mr Cross had been driving a taxi in the inner-city suburb of Woolloomooloo after completing a fare from Cheltenham before the cab was found abandoned on McElhone Street.
Despite police launching an investigation into his disappearance after a family member called authorities, Mr Cross has not been seen or contacted any relatives since.
Initial inquiries also found that a credit card issued to the then-40-year-old had been used shortly after he vanished in Adelaide.
At the time of his disappearance, Mr Cross was known to be an avid golfer and sports fans who was involved in multiple NSW sporting clubs and it is believed he may still have ties to those communities.
He has been described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 172cm tall with a medium build, black hair, brown eyes and a possibly hunched posture.
Police have also issued a composite image of Mr Cross’ appearance in 1988 and what he may look like today.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mr Cross should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
