NSW Police have announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the body of missing Sydney gay man Matthew Leveson.

Leveson, then 20, disappeared on September 23 2007. He was last seen leaving Sydney’s ARQ nightclub with partner Michael Atkins.

He was reported missing two days later when he did not turn up for work and remained uncontactable.

Police later found his Toyota Seca abandoned in Waratah Park, Sutherland, at the sight of a known beat.

Atkins was charged by police in 2008 after they found a receipt from a hardware store for tape and a mattock, purchased within nine hours of Leveson’s disappearance, in the boot of the Toyota Seca. A NSW Supreme Court jury found Atkins not guilty of murder or of the alternative charge of manslaughter.

Leveson was a blond male of Caucasian appearance, around 175cms tall with a trim athletic build, and was last seen wearing light brown cargo shorts, a black singlet and white leather shoes.

Anyone with information should contact Miranda Police Station on 02 9541 3899 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
