There are still no answers about what happened to a tourist who was travelling in Tasmanian bushland before he vanished.
Peter Henrich was visiting the state from his home in Western Australia when he was last seen on October 2 last year at the Conara rest area in the Northern Midlands.
Three months later, his van was found on a bush track at Poatina, but the 58-year-old was nowhere to be seen.
It was believed he was planning to camp in the area and the van had been driven to Poatina in early November, but was reported abandoned the next month.
Following the reports, police scoured nearby bushland for days, but he was not found.
Now, a year later and Mr Henrich is still missing.
Tasmania Police Inspector Scott Flude said officers were continuing to look into the case.
“The matter remains an ongoing investigation,” he said.
“Families always deserve answers to what happened to their loved ones and police will not close a missing person case until the answers are found.”
Mr Henrich was travelling alone when he vanished.
He was originally from Germany, but had lived in Australia for about six years.
He was driving a 2012 white Suzuki van, registration N10992.
In Tasmania, about 125 people are reported missing each year, but nearly 99 per cent are found – most within 48 hours.
Mr Henrich is one of 163 current missing people in the state, with some cases dating back as far as the 1950s.
His case was highlighted by police in August as part of National Missing Persons Week, along with six other local investigations.
Anyone with information about Mr Henrich’s disappearance, or about any other missing person case, should contact police on 131444 or report anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
