South Sydney's greatest try-scorer, Nathan Merritt, has been a notable absentee from the club's premiership celebrations and officials are unsure of his whereabouts.
Merritt was a no-show at Sunday's grand final.
Club officials had expected the now-retired winger to be on hand with the rest of the playing squad at Redfern Oval on Monday to be introduced to the Rabbitohs' faithful, but again Merritt was absent.
The entire squad – including the likes of Luke Burgess, Joel Reddy,Bryson Goodwin and Ben Lowe – were on stage with the NRL trophy, despite not playing in the grand final.
Merritt was also invited by the NRL to take part in the retiring players tribute before Sunday's game.
Merritt has not been seen at Redfern since Wednesday but has remained active on his Instagram account.
He posted a picture of himself after playing at the annual Koori knockout at Raymond Terrace on Sunday.
He later posted a photo of the Rabbitohs logo writing "best wishes to the brothers tonight. Go get that premiership lads."
It is understood Merritt is yet to make contact with club officials.
Merritt announced his retirement last month after 13 seasons and 237 games.
Merritt broke Benny Wearing's long-standing Rabbitohs' all-time try-scoring record with his 145th first-grade try in round six against Penrith, but has not played in the top grade since round 17.
