DETECTIVES are continuing to probe new leads in the cold-case mystery of Armidale man Bill Roach, but investigators believe someone knows something about what happened.
A $100,000 reward was announced in late-July for information that leads to the remains of the 25-year-old who disappeared from Armidale in December 1993.
Strike Force Annan is trying to trace what happened to Mr Roach and police believe he might have met with foul play.
In the midst of missing persons week, investigators are hoping the reward might encourage others to come forward with the missing piece of the puzzle.
"The primary focus is finding out what happened to Bill Roach and providing that closure for his family," New England Detective Inspector Ann Joy said.
"Despite the passage of time, that strike force is continuing to probe a number of leads.”
Several reports to Crime Stoppers have sparked new avenues of investigation, along with the search of a property on the outskirts of Armidale, which had never been combed by police in previous investigations.
“That is still the subject of further investigation, and we are constantly reviewing new pieces of information that come in,” Detective Inspector Joy said.
“We want people in the community to be aware this investigation is still current, and we are working on it with some intensity.
“We believe there are still other people out there who might provide new pieces of evidence who the investigators would be keen to hear from.”
