Russell Bradshaw, then aged 35 years, was last seen by his wife leaving their Salisbury Heights home in January 1992. Russell left without taking any of his personal possessions and without telling anyone where he was going.

Russell was believed to be involved in the local drug scene, but it is not known if this played a role in his disappearance. The manner of Russell's disappearance is not consistent with his usual behaviour as he always maintained contact with his friends and family including his children.

Police suspect Russell has been murdered and his murder is believed to be linked with the disappearance of Damian Cauchi in 1998 who is also suspected to have been murdered.

If you have information that may assist police in the disappearance of Russell please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
