    Zac Barnes - missing since 13 November 2016

    http://www.theherald.com.au/story/43...p-us-find-zac/

    THE worried mother of missing Metford teenager Zac Barnes has pleaded for any information which may lead them to the 18-year-old.

    Zac has not been seen since getting out of a car and running away from friends whilst in a distressed state on the night of November 13 ? a Sunday.

    The apprentice bricklayer had appeared fine earlier in the day before something triggered him to want to leave a friend?s house to get a train at Thornton railway station.

    But on the way, Zac has asked his friend to stop the car before he got out and ran off near the intersection of Haussman Drive and Tripp Close.

    He has not been seen since, has not been on social media, has no money or phone and has failed to return to work.

    Police searched the area and canvassed residents last week.

    They have returned on Monday and, along with State Emergency Service volunteers, are searching the area where he was last seen.

    A police helicopter will also search from the air.

    ?None of the residents in the area have seen him, he hasn?t hitchhiked, he hasn't gotten on a train, he is only wearing a singlet and shorts and work boots,?? mum Karen Gudelj said.

    ?We don?t know where he could be and we really don?t know why or what kind of mental state he was in.

    ?We need him to know that if he is thinking he might be in trouble, that there is absolutely nothing he could have done that would cause us not to want to help and support him.

    ?And we need his friends to know that nobody is going to get into any trouble for this. That we just want to know he is okay, that he is safe.

    ?Please come forward if you know anything, anything at all.??

    Ms Gudelj said Zac could be identified by a tattoo of a VB logo on his right calf, and asked anyone who may see him to contact police instead of approaching him.

    He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, between 180cm to 185cm tall, of thin build, with brown hair and brown eyes.

    Zac was last seen wearing a faded blue singlet, dark blue board shorts and work boots.

    Anyone who has information on his whereabouts is urged to contact Maitland police on 4934 0200 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    How odd for him to just get out of the car and run when his friend was taking him where he wanted to go. Wonder if the friend is being honest....

    If he is still alive, I am wondering if something happened with his friends and they are covering up with that story. It's either gotta be that, or this poor guy really went mental and took off, not thinking right.

    I work a stones throw away form where this lad went missing. I grew up in the area and have spent a lot of time in the bush around there.

    There aren't really any places to hide in that bush but there is one way i know of to leave the area without being seen by anyone. One such path would be to follow the rail line that serves four mile coal mine and crosses over the new england highway, from there it opens up into a much larger area of bushland.

    There also are not many inherent dangers with the general area apart form the old brickworks where there is an un-fenced and dis-used quarry that is about half full of water at the moment. I used to swim there as a teenager.
    Is it possible that he fell down into it in the dark? There is a very steep "cliff" on one side of it that is about 20-25 high.

    Maybe he hopped a coal train and ended up god knows where, they slow down in that area and i have even hopped them at this kids exact age. That was 18 years ago.

    Apart from that quarry there really isn't anywhere to hide. It really perplexes me as to where he is, it's not an isolated area by any means. You think someone would have seen him.

    Anyway sorry for the rant. Any questions about the area free free to ask.

    Thanks for the info, Novacastrian. I think him falling into the quarry sounds like a good possibility.

    Welcome, homie from my homie. One thing though, I'm sure you're as stoked as I on '97 and '00, but we are called NovOcastrians

    There's a few of us now on here!

    I honestly don't think he left the car and ran randomly. I think something went down.

    Going to lurk today - bunch of mutuals too.

    'He was definitely afraid of someone': Search for teenager, 18, with VB tattoo who hasn't been seen for six weeks - as it's revealed he 'owed people money' before he disappeared into bushland

    When Zac Barnes ran into bushland six weeks ago - the last time he was seen - he owed people money, it has been claimed.

    The 18-year-old bricklayer from Thornton, New South Wales, who has a distinctive Victoria Bitter beer tattoo on his leg, hasn't been seen since Sunday, November 13 when he fled from friends.

    His debts and the manner of his disappearance - running from a car into bush - and that he was 'definitely afraid of someone' were revealed in a Facebook post on a page dedicated to finding him.

    he message read: 'It just doesn't make sense he would leave the surroundings and family he loved. Zac had realised his foolish mistakes and wanted to make positive changes to his life.

    'He drank too much VB, he played the pokies and he tried to make some easy money, which only ended up in owing money. His life seemed out of his control but he asked for help and we were more than happy to provide it.'

    It went on to describe how the Friday before he disappeared, Zac had believed he'd lost his job.

    He wasn't ready tell his family so he stayed with a friend for the weekend.

    It was common for family to not see him until Sunday afternoons, but that day, he didn't show up.

    So his family got a friend to look for him - not knowing the friend was connected to the person he was alleged to have owed money to.

    Zac was found quickly but he was stressed that they had found him - not knowing it was family who'd asked them to do so.

    Friends gave him a ride in their vehicle but at some point on Haussmann Drive at Thornton he asked them to stop and he fled, according to the post.

    He was last seen wearing a faded tie die blue singlet, dark blue board shorts and work boots.

    Zac had no phone, identification or money when he disappeared and has not contacted friends or his siblings, according to the post.

    On November 19, police issued a statement appealing for information about Barnes' whereabouts.

    Police had concerns for his welfare.

    Daily Mail Australia has contacted New South Wales Police and the admin of 'Help find Zac Barnes' for further comment.

    What does VB and pokies mean? The only thing I could come up with pokies was poker.


    If he actually got into the car with a "friend" I bet the friend drove him to a set-up.

    Vb is Victoria bitter which is a cheap Australian beer. Pokies is short for poker machines which is what we call slot machines

    Still missing :( Still no one talking. I think he owed some $$, to the wrong people, and they've fucked him over. Just what I've gleamed so far. I initially thought maybe he did run and then took his own life, but that makes 0 sense.

    Someone who wasn't family wouldn't give family access and went rogue, I believe?
