THE search for a missing Goondiwindi man in the Pilliga south of Narrabri re-commences today (Wednesday, December 9).

The NSW State Emergency Service and other volunteers had a rest day yesterday after searching thick scrub for the 51 year-old since Wednesday.

They will be joined by Police with sniffer dogs from Sydney tomorrow.

Concern for the father and grandfather, Terry  Lloyd, grew after his car was found abandoned in the Pilliga Forest.

Terry is a familiar face to many in Goondiwindi.

A former local with many family ties, he also worked  for Care Goondiwindi’s Medico Run before it ceased due to lack of funding, and is a man known for his kindness.  

Now police want your help to return him to his family.

“We are sure that he is fine but at the same time we are very concerned, as it is not like him to do this to his family,” Terry’s daughter Kaylah Johnson said. That was Tuesday of last week.

Terence Lloyd, 51, was reported missing from Goondiwindi, Queensland, and was last seen on Wednesday, November 25, 2015, in the Pilliga area, however he has not been seen or heard from since.

Police responded to reports of a car into a tree in the Pilliga Forest, west of Gwabegar, about 85km north of Coonabarabran, on Wednesday.

Police arrived at the location and found a black Toyota RAV4, owned by Mr Lloyd that had crashed into a tree.

The Toyota was unoccupied, a search was begun in the vicinity of the RAV4, however no-one was found.

Inside the car there was no wallet, no overnight bag or luggage just his glasses. 

Terry didn't take his mobile phone with him when he left, he simply took his wallet and his bank cards.

"We know from his bank account he has been from Goondiwindi to Toowoomba to Brisbane to Narrabri."

Police cannot confirm if Mr Lloyd was driving the car at the time of the accident but also cannot speculate if there was another driver.

However Police have confirmed a sighting of Terry on cctv in Narrabri on November 25. Land and air searching resumed on Thursday and Friday in the area with the help of local police, trail bike officers, PolAir, State Emergency Service (SES), and the National Parks and Wildlife Service. A Facebook Page has been set up by Terry's family, with a video and posts that can be shared through social media and on email:https://www.facebook.com/Helpusfindterry/?fref=ts

If anyone has seen him in the area or have information that may assist with locating him are urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
