Search continues for missing man in Queenstown

Police are continuing to search for 27-year-old Fabian Dobson who was reported missing yesterday, Monday, September 4.

Fabian was at the Cowboys Bar on Searle Lane, Queenstown, and was last seen on CCTV in Church Street around 2am on Monday morning.

The Dunedin man did not return to his accommodation and has not been in touch with friends or family since.

On the night Fabian went missing he was wearing a white cap with a black logo on the front, cream coloured trousers, and a two toned jacket that was white on the bottom half.

He is approximately 180cm and of slim build.

The search for Fabian has continued today and involves police, Search and Rescue volunteers, the Queenstown Coastguard and members of Fabian’s extended family.

The groups have today searched extensively in the Queenstown Bay area and the search area has also been extended to include the Frankton and five mile walking tracks.

Police are asking people in the Queenstown, Frankton and Sunshine Bay area to check any out buildings on their properties to assist in the search for Fabian.

The Police Dive Squad has arrived in Queenstown this afternoon and intends to search Lake Wakatipu tomorrow morning.

Fabian's friends and family are understandably very concerned that he has not made contact and ask that anyone who has seen or heard from Fabian contact Queenstown Police on 03 441 1600.
