[EDIT] Samuel has now been found. Thanks for your help in locating him.


MISSING | *Please Share* | URGENT: Samuel Hitch,

a 16-year-old student in Senior 9 of the Mudgeeraba Special School, left his Mudgeeraba home during the night after his family put him to bed at around 10.30pm. He has not been seen or heard from since.
He was officially reported as missing at 7.30am on Saturday. We released our missing report at 12.30pm this afternoon. Police have just released a missing persons report to the media at 3.24pm.

He was wearing a Quiksilver shirt, blue microfible school tracksuit pants and reportedly took a jumper that was too small for him. The only possessions he appears to have taken is his wallet and sunglasses.

He is 180cm tall and of slight build with sandy blonde hair and green eyes. He is communicative and you could reassure him that we are all here to help.

His mother’s name is Megan which is what he refers her as rather than ‘Mum’.

The police are involved and the family have requested that all direct calls are referred to Colleen Hope at the Mudgeeraba Special School on 0457514724. The family hopes this will help to bring him home safe and sound.

Anyone who has seen Samuel is asked to contact police: 1800 333 000.
