An air and ground search has been launched today for Malcolm Bohmeyer after he went missing in Langwarrin yesterday. Police on off-road motorbikes, the Air Wing, Mounted Branch and uniform members are being supported by the SES in searching Langwarrin and surrounding reserve areas for the 71-year-old.
Mr Bohmeyer left his Cranbourne Rd home about 1.30pm yesterday to go for a bike ride. He usually rides his black mountain bike near the Cranbourne Rd/Peninsula Link bike path and was expected home mid-afternoon. However, when he did not return, his family became worried and now hold serious concerns for his welfare because of his medical condition and because he has now missed his regular medication.
Mr Bohmeyer is described as Caucasian in appearance, 160cm, with a medium build and short grey hair. He was wearing a blue helmet, a black long-sleeve T-shirt and grey track pants.
Anyone who sees Mr Bohmeyer is urged to contact Carrum Downs police station on 8770 4100.
