Desperate search for missing TV presenter as bloody clothes are discovered

Desperate search for missing TV presenter as bloody clothes are discovered

Former TV star Jesse Baird and his boyfriend Luke Davies disappeared on February 19.

A desperate search is underway for a missing TV presenter and his partner after they vanished earlier this week.

Concerns are continuing to grow for Jesse Baird, a former host on the Australian morning show Studio 10, and his boyfriend Luke Davies after police found bloody clothes belonging to them discarded in a skip.

The pair were last seen near Baird's home in Paddington, New South Wales, on Monday (19 February), but have not been seen or heard from since.

Police said the families of the ex-presenter and his flight attendant partner had been 'unable to contact' them, while adding that neither of them had turned up to work.

Cops have now expressed their 'grave concerns' for the couple during a public appeal for information, as they revealed that officers had found bloody items belonging to Baird, 26, and Davies, 29, inside a skip on Wednesday morning.

A statement from the New South Wales Police Force read: "Police will appeal for information as they investigate the suspicious disappearance of a man from Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

Couple Jesse Baird and Luke Davies disappeared on February 19.

"Possessions belonging to 29-year-old Luke Davies and another man were found just after 11am yesterday (21 February), in a skip-bin on Wilbar Avenue, Cronulla," investigators added.

'Unusual items' including a $8000 watch, a phone, keys and credit cards were also reportedly found in a bin near the nightclub 'Club Cronulla', according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

The concerning development comes after officers entered a home in Paddington on Wednesday and 'immediately established a crime scene'.

Police found a 'large amount of blood' and 'signs of a struggle' inside, leading them to believe that at least one of the missing pair had suffered a 'significant injury'.

The authorities statement added: "Police then attended Luke’s home in Waterloo, but he has not been located and his disappearance is being treated as suspicious.

Davies was a former presenter on the Australian morning show Studio 10.

"Investigators are now trying to determine the location of a 26-year-old man, who they believe can assist with inquiries."

Australian publications have reported that friends of Baird have told detectives that he was recently being stalked by another man.

An unnamed pal told the Daily Telegraph: "I'm so scared for his [Baird's] wellbeing. He used the word stalker."

Detective Superintendent Jodi Radmore said of the investigation: "There has been some sort of incident which has more than likely happened at the Paddington address and that has given us grave concerns for one, possibly both.

"Witnesses described it as a verbal argument. It wasn’t reported to police at the time. Their final movements are still under investigation.

"It's very early stages in the investigation. We are still processing the Paddington address. All lines of enquiry are open."

NSW Police have urged anyone with information on either of the men or that could assist the investigation to contact Waverley Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
