AS part of National Missing Persons Week, Tasmania Police is seeking information about the disappearance of Derwent Valley man Jason Mazurek who was last seen at Sandy Bay on September 15, 2002, aged 20.
Jason was last seen around 2am that Saturday morning, walking out the Wrest Point Casino main entrance and onto the marina area at the northern end of Drysdale Ave, Sandy Bay.
He was wearing blue stonewash jeans, a white short-sleeve t-shirt and sandy coloured Colorado shoes. He was carrying a black wallet which was attached to his jeans with a chain.
Jason had recently moved from Bushy Park to Glenorchy. He is described as 175cm tall, medium build, dark brown hair, and brown eyes with an olive complexion. He has a tribal tattoo on his back and a front tooth missing.
Significant police searches were undertaken, including divers searching the waterways near Sandy Bay, but Jason has not been located. In 2008 his disappearance was reported to the Coroner who later determined Jason had died, but his cause of death was undetermined.
Anyone who saw Jason around the time of his disappearance is asked to come forward. Information can be provided to Tasmania Police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers Tasmania anonymously at crimestopperstas.com.au or on 1800 333 000.
