POLICE  have made a fresh appeal for information about the disappearance and suspected murder of Mt Gambier man Gordon Hamm at Nelson in July last year. 

Mr Hamm was last seen on the Nelson bridge about 4am on Wednesday July 17. 

Police believe Mr Hamm was the passenger in a silver Toyota Corolla sedan bearing South Australian registration plates.

The vehicle was being driven by a woman from Mt Gambier and was stopped by two vehicles on the bridge.

One vehicle drove in front of the Corolla and a second parked behind, blocking its path.

Police alleged two men armed with guns got out of the vehicles and approached the Corolla, removing Mr Hamm by force.

Three men have been charged in relation to Mr Hamm’s death, but his remains have not been found. 

Homicide squad detectives returned to Mount Gambier on Monday to follow up a number of leads in the 34-year-old’s disappearance. 

Two men from Mt Gambier, a 29-year-old and 35-year-old, were extradited to Victoria and charged with murder in July last year. 

A 21-year-old Mt Gambier man was extradited to Victoria and was charged with accessory to murder in October last year.
