Do you know what happened to Craig Leonard?

Posted on 11/01/2020

Craig Leonard lived at Douglas Road, Salisbury East with his wife and daughter.

The 41-year old was last seen at this address at about 10am on Monday 11 January 2010.

He was in the process of finding alternative accommodation because of strains on his family relationships.

He was last seen by his wife and daughter before they went out.

When they returned later, they thought he may be asleep in a bedroom but later discovered he had left.

He was not fit enough to walk long distances and left with only some clothing and some food items – including cold sausages and some junk food.

In the days after his disappearance, a family member used his credit card to withdraw cash from an ATM.

He was reported missing by his wife and has not been seen since that time.

Mr Leonard suffered from a number of medical conditions, was on medication and was unable to walk any substantial distance.

Police suspect he has been murdered.

Searches for Mr Leonard have proved fruitless. The first involved excavating sections of the backyard of the family home and the second by police divers in the River Murray at Walker’s Flat, where the family used to holiday.

A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to a conviction for the suspected murder or the recovery of his remains.
