    At the time of his disappearance, Ewen resided in the north of Tasmania in the suburb of East Launceston with his mother, father and two older sisters. In August of 1993, Craig and his immediate family arranged to spend the September school holidays in Conningham (south Tasmania). Ewen was last seen by his mother mid-morning on September 3, 1993. All searches of the area and enquiries to date have failed to locate any trace of Craig. There are serious concerns for his safety and welfare.

    Coroner finds missing boy Craig Ewen Taylor’s death 21 years ago is a mystery

    A CORONER has been unable to determine exactly what happened to a little boy who vanished during a visit to his family’s holiday shack 21 years ago.

    Craig Ewen Taylor, 9, disappeared at Coningham in 1993. Coroner Stephen Carey concluded that Craig had most probably drowned but there was still a possibility he had been abducted.

    His report said the East Launceston Primary School pupil had a history of running away from home, had developmental challenges and did not know how to swim. The boy, who had been adopted by his uncle and aunt, travelled to the Coningham shack for the school holidays in September 1993.

    Police told the Coroner the family had alerted them twice in the month before Craig’s disappearance that he had run away from the family home.

    He disappeared from the shack on September 3. He was not immediately found and a full-scale search was mounted.

    The search continued for weeks around the Coningham area and in the water between Snug and Oyster Cove. A witness told police she had seen an object under the water at Coningham the day Craig disappeared.

    Nearby residents said their kayak, minus its paddle, had been taken from their front yard on the same afternoon. The kayak was found with its front quarter section in the water at Howden Fire Station. The bottom of the craft had been scratched.

    Another theory surfaced when a woman gave police credible evidence that she had seen a young boy in clothes matching the ones Craig was wearing hitchhiking towards Hobart about the same time.

    She saw a car pull up but did not see if the child got in. Coroner Carey said he was satisfied that detailed searches had been conducted and the most probable explanation for Craig’s disappearance was that he took the kayak and entered the water.

    “It is probable the kayak overturned and Craig either drowned or subsequently perished due to hyperthermia,” the Coroner said. But the possibility he got into a car and has not been seen since remained open.

    Mr Carey said it was unlikely that Craig could “run away and establish himself somewhere else” and was satisfied that Craig had died soon after his disappearance. The exact cause of Craig’s death could not be determined.

    Prior to his disappearance, Craig lived with his family in Launceston and had two older sisters, Susan aged 14 years and Margaret aged 12 years. The Taylor family often spent school holidays at a shack belonging to Mrs Taylor’s parents located in Coningham. The family had visited on numerous occasions and Craig would have known the local beach, main road and local area well.
    Mrs Taylor and the children arrived at the shack on Thursday 2 September 1993 intending to stay until 9 September. At about 9.30am the next day Craig spoke to his mother, made her toast and had his own breakfast. Later Mrs Taylor asked him to get dressed as she intended to take him with her while she travelled to Kingston to do some shopping.
    However, when she was preparing to leave she found that he was not in the house and calls for him in the close vicinity were unsuccessful. Mrs Taylor went to Kingston at about 11.30am leaving her daughters at the shack. She returned about 1pm, and Craig had still not returned.
    Craig has not been seen since.
    If you have information that may assist police to locate Craig, please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
