What happened to Damian Cauchi?

Posted on 01/08/2019

Damian went missing from Adelaide in 1998, and he’s never been found.
 
The 21-year old left his Mount Gambier home to live in Adelaide in early August 1998.
 
The last reported sighting of him was in August 1998 when he was seen with another male.
 
He was reported missing by his parents in September 1998.
 
Damian was believed to associate with a number of people involved in criminal activities, but it is not known if this played a role in his disappearance.
 
His disappearance is out of character and he has not contacted his parents or accessed his bank accounts.
His disappearance is linked with the disappearance of Russell Bradshaw in 1992 who is also suspected to have been murdered.
 
Since then there have been several unsuccessful searches in the Murray Mallee region for the remains of the two men — whose bodies are believed to have been dumped near to each other, but not in the same exact location.
 
Police believe Damian was probably murdered because he learnt something about Mr Bradshaw’s disappearance.
 
A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to to anyone who either provides information leading to the recovery of his remains or information leading to a conviction in the case.
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
