Police have grave concerns for a 17-year-old boy who went missing over a month ago in Far North Queensland

Markyia Major, 17,  who is from the coastal town in the Aboriginal Shire of Yarrabah, near Cairns, was last seen at his home in Westcourt on August 15. 

The 17-year-old’s mum reported him missing on September 2 after after her son did not contact any of his family or access his bank account

Markyia’s mother told police her son had ‘gone out for a few days’ in the past and expected to hear from him.    

Acting Detective Inspector Chetham said the Markyia’s mother ‘conducted her own inquires’ before approaching police, who then launched an investigation into his disappearance.

Markyia Major, 17, was last at his home in the suburb of Westcourt, Cairns on August 15. His mother said the teen has not had contact with his family or has accessed his bank account since he disappeared 

Acting Detective Inspector Chetham  (pictured) said Markyia’s disappearance was ‘unusual’ and the lack of contact with family and friends has raised ‘red flags’ for investigators

‘It’s really the lack of contact with family and friends that is the red flag for us,’ Acting Detective Inspector Chetham told The ABC

‘His mum tells us that she would have certainly expected contact well before now. Markyia has gone out for a few days at a time in the past, but nothing like this, so it is very unusual.’

Inspector Chetham said Markyia’s behaviour was ‘quite normal’ in the lead up to his disappearance. 

He added the teenager did not talk about leaving the area and did not have any confrontations with his family or friends. 

Police said they were ‘keeping an open mind’ after being asked if they suspected ‘foul play’ in his disappearance. 

Inspector Chetham said police are questioning Markyia’s broad group of friends and associates. 

‘No-one at this point in time has been able to come forward and pinpoint what his movements were,’ Mr Chetham said.  

‘We just don’t know … we are investigating it as a missing person’s report.’ 

Markyia is described as 150cm tall, with a slim build and having shoulder-length curly black hair. 

Anyone with information about Markyia’s whereabouts or has seen the teenager is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
