December 12, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

Nick Eade, a television producer in Sydney, Australia, is still missing, and his family has now come forward to ask the public for help finding him.

Eade, 37, left his home in Dee Why on November 26, and failed to return home after work, according to the NSW Police Force.

Eade texted his wife on the 26th, telling her that he just had an extremely successful work meeting, adding that “it was prob the best one I’ve done to date,” reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

He added that he would be home slightly later than usual because he had a busy rest of the day coming up.

He told his wife, Trish Heagerty, “Love you heaps xx.”

That’s the last Heagerty has heard from him, and she says the disappearance is completely out of character. The family is incredibly worried. “We love him very much and we are very concerned for his health and welfare,” she said.

“It doesn’t make any sense,” she said.

Asked if Eade is hiding, Heagerty said she doesn’t know, but she doesn’t think so. “I just feel like he might be ashamed if he’s been away for too long, but I just want to put out there that we all miss him so much, and we just want him home.”

There have been several leads, including an uncofirmed sighting on November 20 in Mullumbimby, and Eade’s vehicle was found abandoned in Cremorne. His phone was inside.

Johanna Griggs, a colleague at Channel Seven’s Fast Ed show, where Eade works, appealed for help. 

“Please keep a look out 4 our colleague Nick Eade, Missing for 2 weeks now. Thinking of him & his family,” she said via Twitter. “Please pass on. We are hoping our much valued colleague is found soon.”

Eade is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 170cm tall, with a stocky build, shaved head and a large tattoo on his left arm.

Anyone with information should call all Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
