Missing since February 27, 1987 from Thumb Creek, New South Wales, Australia
Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Ian Braund was last seen in the Nambucca Heads area in 1987.
Several investigations have been made into the disappearance of Ian Braund, who was last seen on a farm at Thumb Creek, about 30km from Taylors Arm.
Mr Braund had left a Newcastle health facility in February 1987 and was living with his brother on an 8ha-farm on Taylors Arm Road.

Police were told Mr Braund went for a walk on the property with one of his dogs on 27 February 1987 and has not been seen since. His dog returned to the farm house a few days later with an injured paw.

Heavy rain and flooding hit the region for about 10 days after Mr Braund went missing, hampering searchers.
All of Mr Braund’s possessions were left behind at the farm house and his personal bank accounts were not accessed.
