Grant Hackett has been declared missing by his father, who has urged the public to keep an eye out for the former Olympian.
He had also been arrested at the family home on Wednesday after an alleged disturbance, but was subsequently released without charge.
The three-time gold medallist was last seen leaving the Gold Coast’s Palazzo Versace hotel around 7:30am today. Since then, Hackett’s father says “his doctor can’t find him, he hasn’t kept an appointment with his lawyer.”
“He’s definitely a missing person and he’s mentally disturbed and needs urgent help.
“Grant, let us know where you are, we love you and we want to help you.”
