He was wearing stone wash blue jeans, white short sleeve button shirt and sandy coloured Colorado shoes.  Despite door knocks, the best efforts of Police divers and extensive interviewing of family and friends by investigators, no trace of Jason has ever been found. Jason is now twenty-five years old, 175cm tall, medium build, with dark Brown hair, brown eyes with an olive complexion. His top front left tooth is missing.

"My name is Jodie & I am Jason's oldest sister, I am leaving this message in the hope that someone responds as we are at a loss as to where he might be or what happened. He was our only brother of 6 children and has missed out on so much in the 6 years he hasn't been with us, the arrival of two of my three children (he now has 2 neices and a nephew) & my grandfathers passing. Every birthday, christmas & special occasion that he has not been here has been a sad occasion instead of a joyous one.
 Someone at the Casino that night must have seen something and we need you to come forward with any information no matter how small you may think it is, we as a family need closure.
He as a person was a generous, kind and extremely family orientated man which leads us to believe that he just hasn't dissapeared of his own accord.
Please Help us find our Son, Brother, Uncle, and friend - we miss him."


He'd been enjoying a night out with his sister, the last person to see him at the Casino. Security camera footage shows Jason in the foyer with his sister. Jason was living with his mother at Bushy Park but had been staying with his sister at Glenorchy. His family say it was out of character for him to be absent without first notifying them. He was a "family-oriented" person and "not one to get into trouble". Jason was hoping to join the Defence Forces; no reason for his disappearance has been determined. There are concerns for his safety and welfare.
The Police appreciate all reports; there's a Free call number 1800 000 634 or pass it directly to your local Police. There's also Crime stoppers on 1800 005 555 and Tasmania Police Missing Persons Unit on Hobart 6230 2606.



Seeking information about Jason Mazurek

New Norfolk News

AS part of National Missing Persons Week, Tasmania Police is seeking information about the disappearance of Derwent Valley man Jason Mazurek who was last seen at Sandy Bay on September 15, 2002, aged 20.

Jason was last seen around 2am that Saturday morning, walking out the Wrest Point Casino main entrance and onto the marina area at the northern end of Drysdale Ave, Sandy Bay.

He was wearing blue stonewash jeans, a white short-sleeve t-shirt and sandy coloured Colorado shoes. He was carrying a black wallet which was attached to his jeans with a chain.

Jason had recently moved from Bushy Park to Glenorchy. He is described as 175cm tall, medium build, dark brown hair, and brown eyes with an olive complexion. He has a tribal tattoo on his back and a front tooth missing.

Significant police searches were undertaken, including divers searching the waterways near Sandy Bay, but Jason has not been located. In 2008 his disappearance was reported to the Coroner who later determined Jason had died, but his cause of death was undetermined.

Anyone who saw Jason around the time of his disappearance is asked to come forward. Information can be provided to Tasmania Police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers Tasmania anonymously at crimestopperstas.com.au or on 1800 333 000.

‘They expect, deserve answers’: Remembering Tasmania’s missing people

There are seven long-term missing Tasmanians who are being brought back to the public’s attention as part of National Missing Persons Week. SEE THE CASES >>


The Australian Federal Police is highlighting the case of Jason Mazurek who was last seen leaving the Wrest Point Casino at Sandy Bay about 2am on September 15 2002.

One of his sisters, Rebekah Morris said Jason, who would now be 39, was remembered as a doting, thoughtful and protective brother and for “his laugh, his jokes and strong work ethic”.

“I don’t think it gets easier as time goes on, I think in some ways it can actually get harder,” Ms Morris said.

“Now that we’re all a little older and have our own children, the thought of losing a child this way and not having answers as to why is just incomprehensible.

“I can’t imagine what mum has gone through over the years and I think our hearts just break a little more for her as time goes on.”
