    Unfortunately Owen's case in the hands of Moreland CIU and the officer in charge of the case has made a submission to the coroner to declare Owen deceased and close the case

    Oh no! :tears:

    We aren't as quick to do that in the USA. I think the family has to make the request, under most circumstances.

    This is most likely the procedure that the police have to follow. I will get some advice on this

    Hi Dylan, I am so sorry for you and your family that Owen disappeared from your lives. I can only guess how that feels. One of the administrators asked me to comment as I am an Australian lawyer. I see from your find Owen Facebook page that the coroner has declared Owen deceased. As upsetting as this is to you, it's just a legality, it doesn't change anything in actuality. Either Owen is still alive or he is not but its no different to the day before the Coroners decision. It stops any active investigation by police but if new evidence turns up they should investigate. And you can keep looking for him.
    I wish you the best and I hope you find out what happened to Owen. Take care of yourself first as your life and happiness is just as important as Owen's.

    Thank you. I realise that the coroner's ruling might not be an accurate reflection of reality and is merely based on the evidence at hand.

    However it does feel as though someone has taken to my heart with steal capped boots (mispelling intentional).....however the one thing no-one should ever tell me is that I cannot do something or it is over....while there is still hope (i.e. There is no physical evidence)

    I will try harder and sacrifice more....to find out what has happened!

    True...you can't even guess how it feels....and I hope you never have to

    Information from Owen's Facebook page:

    The Walk for Owen starts again on November 1st - I am walking 300,000 steps over 30 days for my missing brother Owen to try and get his story out to more people in the hope that someone might know what has happened to Owen.

    Please share this page/post and join me in walking for a missing person...have a look at http://www.missingpersons.gov.au/missing-perso…/profiles/vic

    contact your local media and tell them who you are walking for...raise awareness for missing persons cases

    Thanks for letting us know about the walk Dylan!

    Righto I'll be in it as from Monday. A treadmill will make it easier....lol.

    It is disappointing about that tv show deciding not to take on Owen's story.

    I always remember this quote from another missing person case....

    People can’t just vanish. He’s somewhere.
