National Missing Persons Week: Where is Brett McGillivray?


Brett McGillivray has been missing since April 2006.

“The families and friends of missing people live in limbo – wondering what has happened to their loved one, whether they are okay or not,” said Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Tony Henrys. “The uncertainty never goes away.”

The parents of Brett Rohan McGillivray have requested their son be profiled during the Missing Persons Week.

Brett was last sighted near Hermannsburg on 14 April 2006 before travelling to Alice Springs the following day.

He was driving a white 1990 Toyota Camry Sedan, registration number 8CI766.

On 26 April 2006 Brett's vehicle was located abandoned in a truck bay on the Stuart Highway, approximately 80 kilometres north of Tennant Creek. The keys were still in the ignition and the vehicle still had an ample supply of fuel. All of Brett's personal possessions were still in the vehicle. He may have had a small black backpack with him. An extensive search of the area failed to locate any trace of the missing person.

If you have any information about Brett’s whereabouts, please contact Police on 131 444, or through the Australian Federal Police Force missing persons website at
