Search for missing man Ron McMaster comes to sad end

The search for missing 95-year-old Ronald McMaster has come to a sad end.

The Toorak resident was found dead at Moornapa, near Dargo, on Thursday.

He’d been missing for 11 days.

Police were called to Freestone Creek Road shortly after 9am after passers-by spotted a vehicle down an embankment.

An elderly man was found dead near the vehicle.

At this stage, the body is believed to be that of Ronald McMaster.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Ronald had been on his way to Bermagui, New South Wales, where he was due to arrive on May 5.

The alarm was raised by family members after he failed to arrive.

He was last seen at a service station on the Princes Highway near Nar Nar Goon re-fueling his cream/grey 1965 Vanden Plas (registration plates 987-84H).
