Police have released the name of a man whose bones were discovered near Otford last year in the hope it will trigger someone to come forward with information about his death.

Lynn Tasman Jones was 69 when he was last seen in his home suburb of Waverley about 6.30pm on Wednesday June 10, 2009.

His white 1991 Toyota Camry wagon – with NSW registration AQ-72-UY – was reportedly seen parked on Windmill Street, Millers Point, about 10am the following day.

The vehicle has never been recovered by police.

On October 7 last year, bushwalkers located skeletal remains in the Royal National Park on Lady Wakehurst Drive at Otford and contacted police.



Wollongong police attended the scene and took the bones for analysis.

Following further forensic examination, the remains were identified as those of Lynn Tasman Jones.

Investigations into the circumstances surrounding Mr Jones’s death are continuing and detectives have renewed their appeal for anyone who may have seen his Toyota Camry on June 11, 2009, or has any information that could assist police to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Michael Todd from Eastern Suburbs police command urged anyone who could shed light to contact police immediately.

 “Lynn’s family is devastated by the loss of their loved one and would like some answers so they can finally have closure from this terrible ordeal,’’ he said.

Those with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000.
