Eric Lynch, aged 44 years, of Willimott Street, Ethelton, was reported missing on 16 February 2004 by his housemate. Mr Lynch was last seen in the mid afternoon of 10 February 2004, after visiting an associate in Port Lincoln. He was last seen driving a white Holden Commodore sedan SA VUY-720.  This vehicle was later located  with a large amount of blood in it. In the early evening on the same day the vehicle left a house at Kapinnie and was known to be at Tumby Bay in company with a green Jeep Cherokee WA 1AY1032. A second vehicle of interest that may be connected with the investigation is a white 1989 Ford Station Wagon SA VAC-414.

Mr Lynch‰’s bank accounts have not been accessed and he has not been in contact with any family or friends. Of particular note is that he has had no contact with his family which is highly unusual.

Police arrested two people charging them with his murder. The charges were later withdrawn.
