The search for missing Albion man Samuel Thompson has ramped up today, with police set to re-trace his last known movements. 

It's been a week since the 22 year old 'vanished from the face of the earth', after leaving his unit at Albion driving his distinctive orange Mustang. 

Police have declared they suspect foul play. 

A team of 40 - including homicide detectives - is working on the case, piecing together what happened when Sam left his unit at Albion at around 9.20am last Tuesday (March 7) in his Mustang (QLD registration: SAMMO). 

The car was seen driving northbound on Sandgate Road through Nundah between 10am and 11am. The next known sighting is at 1pm in the carpark at Deep Water Bend Reserve at Bald Hills. Police say the car remained there until the following day.


The Mustang was again sighted in Wooyung, Northern New South Wales, around 7.30pm on Wednesday, March 8 before being found abandoned and unlocked on Tweed Coast Road on Thursday. 

Today, police will use a similar orange Mustang to travel from Albion to Deep Water Bend, where they'll interview locals about what they can remember. 

Police are encouraging anyone with info to attend if they would like to speak to a detective in person.
