Missing backpacker found by a mate in Coogee

An Irish tourist missing in Sydney has been found after being missing for almost two days.

25-year-old Craig Lambe was found by a friend in Coogee about 8.30pm on Wednesday.

Police thanked the public for their assistance, having released details of his disappearance on Tuesday in a public appeal for help.

Police said at the time that Lambe was last seen leaving his home on Middle Street, Kingsford, about 12.30pm on Monday, but had not made contact with friends and family or returned home since.

In a statement, his family in Ireland said he had left his apartment without money, keys or a phone.

“Craig informed his friend (who he was travelling with) he was going to retrieve money from a Western Union/Bank Account,” his brother James Lambe said.

“We believe Craig was struggling to access funds mainly due to losing his bank card but had not highlighted major difficulties with family or friends.

“Craig’s friend believed he gained access to money as suggested and went shopping as they had just moved into the apartment.”

James Lambe said his brother had taken a black bag with him, which the family believe contained his passport as well as a black jumper, thongs and a towel.

The 25-year-old, who is 180 centimetres tall with a medium build and brown hair, was wearing denim shorts.

James Lambe said the family just wanted to know that Craig was safe.

“Since Craig’s disappearance there has been a huge online appeal which we appreciate immensely but as of now there have been no confirmed sightings of Craig and he has made no contact,” he said.

“Due to the obvious lack of information about his whereabouts and the circumstances in which Craig left his residence on Monday the 11th we are deeply concerned.

“We urge anyone to come forward with information no matter how small they believe it to be and thank everyone who has supported thus far.” /**/
