It is believed Mr Norris left his home on foot with a small food supply, however without personal items such as his phone and wallet.

According to police, Mr Norris is known to leave the house for up to a day at a time, but has never been out of contact for such a long period.

Police on Monday said they were worried for his welfare.

“Police hold grave fears for the welfare of missing Cleve man Darryl Norris, after efforts to locate him have been unsuccessful,” Eyre Western operations inspector Mark Hubbard said.

“Given the passage of time police have real concern for his welfare, given Mr Norris suffers from a medical condition and his family have not heard from him.”

An extensive police search has been carried over a 3.6km radius surrounding Cleve, which included a police helicopter and a drone.


Police don’t believe foul play has played a part in Mr Norris’ disappearance, however Insp Hubbard said the more time passes the worse the situation could be.

“The circumstances surrounding his disappearance are not suspicious, however police keep an open mind in the hope he will be found safe,” Insp Hubbard said.

“We are hopeful that he has found his way to shelter and it is possible that he doesn’t want to be found, however if he is out in the elements and without water for six days, then that would be very bad.”

Mr Norris is described as caucasian, 183cm tall and with a slim build. Anybody with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
