·

Victorian Police are searching a creek on the outskirts of Melbourne for the body of missing Adelaide Hells Angel associate, Kerry Giakoumis, The Advertiser reports.

Detectives have revealed extensive searches of the Jackson Creek in Diggers Rest, northwest of the Melbourne CBD, have been conducted this week after information was received during the inquiry.

So far the body of Mr Giakoumis, 29, has not been recovered but the searches are expected to continue.

Mr Giakoumis was last seen attending the Hells Angels Nomads headquarters in Thomastown on the morning of June 10 last year.

This is just five days after Mr Giakoumis travelled to Victoria from Adelaide with what police believe to be two other Hells Angels associates. 

According to The Advertiser, intensive investigations into Mr Giakoumis’ disappearance indicate he may have been lured to Melbourne, but detectives have so far been unable to establish a motive for murder.

Victorian Police Detective Superintendent, Paul O’Halloran, said a task force comprising specialist detectives skilled in missing persons and homicide cases, as well as outlaw motorcycle gang investigations, had been formed to investigate the murder.

“Police have believed for some time that he has met with foul play and all the information we have received, particularly over the past few months, just confirms that,’’ he told The Advertiser.

“There will be people out there who have information about what happened to Kerry and who is responsible, and again I am appealing for those people to come forward and speak to police. I would also stress that this can be done anonymously.”

Detectives also released an image of a man who was with Mr Giakoumis on the night he was murdered they are attempting to identify as part of the investigation.

Anyone with any information on Mr Giakoumis’ presumed murder is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
