A NSW Police officer has been made a person of interest following the disappearance of Qantas flight attendant Luke Davies and his boyfriend, Channel 10 reporter Jesse Baird. Neither of the men have been seen since Monday, with police holding “grave concerns” for their safety.

On Wednesday, NSW Police allegedly found “blood soaked clothes” and a credit card belonging to Davies, The Daily Telegraph reports, in a skip-bin on Wilbar Avenue, Cronulla at about 11am.

At 1pm, police went to Baird’s Paddington home in search of Davies, and allegedly found “large amounts of blood”. Baird was not at the residence.

When asked if there was enough blood found for a fatality, a police spokeswoman confirmed there was, per news.com.au. She also reportedly added that there were “signs of a struggle” as furniture had been moved around.

Police “immediately declared a crime scene”, according to a NSW Police statement, and then attended Luke’s home in Waterloo. But they didn’t find him, and now his disappearance is being treated as “suspicious”.

The Daily Telegraph alleged on Thursday evening that detectives are now also searching for a current NSW Police officer who previously dated Baird.

Police reportedly want to speak with the officer as part of their investigation into the disappearance of the two men, but cannot find him as of yet.

Police said they hold “grave concerns” for both Davies’ and Baird’s safety, as stated by Detective Superintendent Jodi Radmore to the press.

“There has been some sort of incident which has more than likely happened at the Paddington address and that has given us grave concerns for one, possibly both,” Radmore said.

She also said that neighbours reported shouts coming from the Paddington location on Monday morning. 

“Both the missing person registry and the homicide squad are assisting that missing persons case,” Assistant Commissioner Michael Fitzgerald said in a press conference on Thursday.

Davies has not been seen since Monday, and his family have been unable to contact him. He is believed to have last been in Paddington on Monday, with his family reportedly contacting police on Tuesday. He has also not been at work, according to NSW Police.

Luke Davies is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 170cm-175cm tall with a medium build, brown hair and brown eyes.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about Luke’s whereabouts – or who may have information relevant to the investigation – to contact Waverley Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
