Police still searching for Bilpin man missing since January 22 – renewed public appeal
Police have released a very blurry CCTV image as they renew an appeal for public assistance to find Kenneth Bellette – aged 53 – who was last seen at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl at Bells Line of Road, just before 9am on Saturday January 22.
Family and police hold serious concerns for his welfare due to a medical condition requiring treatment.
It’s not the first time Mr Bellette has gone missing – back in May last year police carried out an extensive search and even got PolAir up to look for him in the Bilpin area and he eventually resurfaced. This time he has been missing for much longer, and police are concerned.
Kenneth is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 172cm tall, of medium build, with black hair shaved in a line down the middle of his head. He has a tattoo on his neck, and another faded tattoo on his left arm.
He was last seen wearing a dark-coloured poncho-style jacket, black shorts, black boots and a black beanie.
Anyone with information about Kenneth’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report information via NSW Police social media pages.
