Bankstown Police are renewing appeals for information, as part of Missing Persons Week, to help find Nikolce Veljanovski (Nick Veljanovski) who went missing from Sydney’s south-west more than two years ago.
Nikolce Veljanovski had been in contact with family during the day; however, was reported missing about 11pm to Bankstown Local Area Command.
Initial investigations indicate he drove his vehicle, a blue Honda Jazz, to the Royal National Park at Bundeena, and was last seen on Beachcomber Avenue about 12.15pm.
His vehicle was located at the park about 7.45am on Thursday 12 June 2014, after which Bankstown and Sutherland Police, with assistance from PolAir, Police Divers, Police Rescue Squad and the Public Order and Riot Squad, conducted land, air and water searches of the area.
Despite the extensive search efforts, Nikolce Veljanovski was not located.
While there were unconfirmed sightings of Nikolce Veljanovski near Rutherford and Hexham in the six months following his disappearance; he remains missing, and has not contacted family members or friends.

Nikolce Veljanovski is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 170-180cm tall, of a slim build, with red hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue spray jacket, black pants and white slip-on runners.

Missing Persons Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons and runs between Sunday 31 July and Saturday 6 August 2016.
The theme of this year’s campaign is urging people to ‘Stay Connected’ and to remember that ‘Missing Persons Leave Frayed Edges.’
The campaign aims to remind members of the public of the importance of staying connected with family and friends and to ultimately enhance personal and communal support networks that assist those most at risk of going missing.
NSW Police Force would like to thank the Outdoor Media Association (OMA) for their assistance with Missing Persons Week 2016, donating advertising sites worth almost $235,000 across NSW.
