Detectives from the Robbery and Serious Crime Squad have arrested and charged a 55-year-old Cronulla man with the murder of a man who was allegedly kidnapped in Padstow last week.

Jamie Gao (pronounced ‘Gow’), a 20-year-old student from Hurstville, was last seen getting into a white vehicle on Arab Road, Padstow, around 1.40pm last Tuesday (20 May 2014).

The car, which was parked near a fast food restaurant on the corner of Arab Road and Davies Road, left the scene shortly after Mr Gao got into the vehicle. The 20-year-old has not been seen since.

Detectives from the Robbery and Serious Crime Squad formed Strike Force Album to investigate Mr Gao’s disappearance and yesterday (Sunday 25 May 2014), around 6.30pm, they arrested a man after a vehicle stop in Kyeemagh.

The man – a 55-year-old from Cronulla – was taken to Kogarah Police Station where he was charged with murder and large commercial drug supply.

He was subsequently refused bail to appear in Kogarah Local Court today (Monday 26 May 2014).

Following the man’s arrest, police executed a search warrant at his residence in Cronulla, seizing a blue Ford Falcon XR6 and a number of other items of interest to investigators.

Officers also executed search warrants at a home in Padstow Heights, seizing a silver Ford Falcon motor vehicle, and a storage unit in Caringbah, where they seized a boat.

A third car, a white Ford Falcon, has also been seized from a location in Cronulla. Detectives believe this is the vehicle Mr Gao got into on Arab Road last Tuesday.

The Commander of the Robbery and Serious Crime Squad, Detective Superintendent Luke Moore, said the investigation by Strike Force Album will continue.

“Our inquiries to date have led us to conclude that Mr Gao has been murdered,” Detective Superintendent Moore said.

“While we have charged a man with murder, this investigation will continue and we may make further arrests.

“We still don’t know where Mr Gao’s body is and are strongly encouraging anyone who can help us locate his remains to contact police.” 

Police officer than Rogerson gave the Green light.
