Police say some locals ‘know what happened’ before body found in bush

Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper, from the missing persons squad, said police were confident they were closing in on those responsible for Mr Lovison’s suspicious death.

“We have returned to the area a number of times as part of this investigation and will continue to return each time we receive new information,” he said.

“There absolutely are people in this community who know what happened to Jarrad.”

Detective Inspector Stamper said investigators had also followed up on a number of other leads, including the sighting of Jarrad’s green bike which was seen propped against a tree on Becks Bridge Road just north of Adam View Court about 2.30pm on April 18.

He urged anyone with information regarding its current whereabouts, as well as what happened to Mr Lovison and who is responsible, to speak to police.

“We know a white wagon stopped in Becks Bridge Road about 4.30pm on April 18 and took Jarrad’s bike, which is still yet to be recovered,” he said.

Mr Lovison was found dead near Moondarra, a remote area about 27 kilometres north of Moe, following public pleas for information.

He had left home without his dog, which his family said was unusual.


He was in a good mood on the day he disappeared and was chopping wood which he intended to sell, his family said.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au.
