being of Caucasian appearance, with a thin build, red hair and blue eyes.
‘‘We’ve been searching ourselves but we’re at a
total loss,’’ said his mother Sylvia.

that can be investigated further.

if he was there to meet someone.’’

welfare and are asking anyone who has seen him, or has information about his
whereabouts, to come forward.

The mother of a Bankstown man
missing for more than a month has expanded her search to the Illawarra,
desperately pleading with locals to keep an eye out for her son.
Nick Veljanovski, 28, of
Bankstown, was last seen last in Allus Street, Yagoona, about 8am on
Wednesday, June 11.
His girlfriend’s car, which was
being driven by Mr Valjanovski, was found the following day at Bundeena in
the Royal National Park.
His mother, Sylvia, said it was
possible her son had travelled on to the Illawarra because he needed ‘‘some
time to think’’.
‘‘There are so many unanswered
questions - it was so out of character as well,’’ she said.
‘‘We have no idea what he was
doing there - as a family we have only gone to the National Park for
‘‘The only thing I can think of
was he meetings someone there.’’
Mr Veljanovski, an accountant,
is described as being of Caucasian appearance, with a thin build, red hair
and blue eyes.
Ms Veljanovski urged anyone with
information about her son’s whereabouts to contact police.
She said her son was a smoker,
and asked for people who sold cigarettes to be on the lookout for him.
‘‘We just need to find him,’’
she said. ‘‘It’s devastating for everyone, the not knowing.’’
Ms Veljanovski said she wanted
to send a message to her son directly, in the event he happened to read this
‘‘We’re worried sick about
you,’’ she said.
‘‘Please give us a call and let
us know you’re okay.
‘‘We love you.’’
