$250,000 reward offered to solve mystery of NSW man found in Qld sewage tank

A $250,000 reward to help solve the death of the NSW man whose lifeless body was found in a sewage tank on Brisbane’s bayside will be offered, more than one year after his father made an emotional plea to the public.

Barry Guise travelled from southern New South Wales to Brisbane to address the media in June 2019 about his son, Jason Guise, who was reported missing on May 4, 2019.

Barry Guise makes an appeal for information at Queensland police headquarters.

Jason was last seen on Charlotte Street at Wynnum on April 24 when he visited a food truck about 7pm.

Following the missing persons appeal, the 45-year-old’s body was found in the sewage tank more than two weeks later on May 8.

Investigators suspected the body was in the tank at the Wynnum pump plant for days before it was found by council maintenance workers about 12.30pm at the Granada Street facility.

Jason, who was born in Parkes in NSW, left behind a family including three sisters and three children behind.

In 2019, Barry said the news of his son’s death was in “circumstances no parent wants to be advised to”.

He said the last time he spoke to his son, who moved to Brisbane for a change, was on his birthday on April 20.

“He rang me and wished my happy birthday, and he sounded great,” he said.

“He said I’ll ring you back at 9.30pm, he rang me at 4.30pm in the afternoon (and I) never heard from him again.”

The Queensland Police Service will hold a press conference announcing the reward on Wednesday.
