It is believed he was at home early in the morning, but when his partner returned at 11am, he was gone.

It’s thought Troy drove off in his car, a white 1999 Ford Falcon, and may be staying in hostels in Melbourne to remain unnoticed.

Police Sen-Constable Kristen Hill spoke to Melbourne’s Herald Sun paper and revealed: “He’s got his mobile phone, his personal belongings.

“[On Wednesday morning] he contacted his partner, saying an appointment had been cancelled and that was the last she heard from him.”

The police and his family are concerned for his well-being because Mr Beckwith has an undisclosed medical condition.

Victoria police released a photo of him alongside a statement revealing he’s about 180cm tall with brown hair and brown eyes.
