ROBERT JAMES ATKINS
MISSING PRESUMED MURDERED
On Saturday 2 January 2021, Robert James Atkins, aged 29 years was reported as a missing person to police by his mother. She last saw him in November 2020 when he attended her home address asking for money.
Atkins was a known drug user and street level drug dealer in the southern suburbs and it is believed his drug debts played a role in his disappearance.
Atkins was unlawfully detained at a residential address in Christie Downs between approximately 9 and 15 November 2020 and assaulted by numerous different people during this time.
There has not been any recorded contact with Atkins nor has there been any activity on his phone or bank accounts since 12 November 2020.
Atkins was last sighted on CCTV footage at Harvey Norman, Gepps Cross at about 4.00 pm on 15 November 2021 in company with a male known to police. Police believe Atkins was then taken north of Port Pirie, where he is suspected to have been murdered. His remains are yet to be located.
