Posted on 03/12/2019

Peteris (Peter) Timmermanis, aged 31 years, was reported missing by his sister on 7 August 1991 after he had not made any contact with his family or friends for two weeks. Shortly before his disappearance, Mr Timmermanis is believed to have hired a Ford truck in Adelaide for the purpose of transporting a large amount of cannabis. Mr Timmermanis was last seen with this truck at Yorketown on the Yorke Peninsula around 18 July 1991. Mr Timmermanis was also believed to be in possession of a large amount of cash at this time. The Ford truck still containing Mr Timmermanis’ personal effects was located in Yorketown on 19 July 1991, but there were no signs of Mr Timmermanis.
