Jayden Penno-Tompsett disappearance: police conduct aerial search for missing Newcastle man in Charters Towers

POLICE on Wednesday used helicopters to scour an area in the outskirts of Charters Towers as the desperate search for missing Newcastle man Jayden Penno-Tompsett drags on.

The search came after detectives received new information that put the 22-year-old’s last known location at a property only described as having a bull skull on a post near a set of yards with silver-coloured fencing.

Police also received information that the property was on an unsealed road with a red steel fence.

According to local media, police were able to pinpoint the property to Stockroute Road, about 20 minutes north-east of the Charters Towers central business district.

Police door-knocked several properties in the area and used helicopters to conduct an aerial search.

However, police were no closer to finding Mr Penno-Tompsett. The Birmingham Gardens man has been missing since New Year’s Eve.

His mother, Rachel Penno, has launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise money for a separate search.
