MAJOR Crime Squad officers are now treating the investigation into the disappearance of 53-year-old Rockingham man Rigby Mark Fielding as a suspected homicide.
Mr Fielding was reported missing on September 18 by concerned family members.
He last made contact with his family on August 15, and was last seen visiting an associate at a residence in Goderich Street in East Perth in the early afternoon of the same date.
Police and his family have concerns for his welfare as it is out of character for Mr Fielding not to have made contact with his family for this time. He has not used his bank accounts, and has not attended important medical appointments.
Mr Fielding is described as being fair skinned, about 185cm tall, with a slim build, blue eyes and greying hair. He may have last been seen wearing blue stonewash jeans and a grey jacket.
Anyone who can assist with this investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or can make a report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au
