Written by

Western Australian police have announced a $500,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the disappearance of Nicola La Falce, who was 37 years old when he was last seen in 1994.

Around. At 8.44pm on Wednesday 12 January 1994, Mr La Falce was in a pizza shop in Wembley when he received a phone call from someone the police believe to be known to him.

Shortly after, he left the store in his blue Ford Courier utility vehicle.

That was the last time Mr. La Falce was ever seen.

At 2.37pm the following afternoon, Ansett Airlines received a telephone call order in Mr La Falce’s name from Perth to Adelaide on 14 January 1994.

On the 14th, Mr La Falce’s car was found in Perth Airport’s long-term car park and at 7.15am the flight from Perth to Adelaide departed with a person in Mr La Falce’s seat.

However, the police now believe that he was not on the plane.

Western Australia State Crime Assistant Commissioner Tony Longhorn said despite how many years have passed, WA Police remain committed to finding whoever is responsible for Mr La Falce’s disappearance.

“He was a much loved father, brother and son, both to family here in Perth and Italy. We believe someone in our community knows what happened to him,” Commissioner Longhorn said.

“We hope this substantial reward will give our detectives new opportunities to help solve this case and would encourage anyone with information to report it to the police.”
