Markyia Major, 17, from the Aboriginal coastal town of Yarrabah, near Cairns, was last seen at her home in Westcourt on August 15. The 17-year-old’s mother reported him missing on September 2 after her son failed to contact any member of her family or access her bank account. Markyia’s mother told police that her son had “gone out for a few days” in the past and she was hoping to hear from him. Acting Detective Inspector Chetham said Markyia’s mother “conducted her own inquiries” before approaching police, who then launched an investigation into his disappearance. “It’s really the lack of contact with family and friends that is the red flag for us,” Acting Detective Inspector Chetham told The ABC.
