Police on hunt for silver Ford Falcon sedan following unsuccessful pursuits in Gurley and Moree

Police from NSW and Queensland are appealing for information from the public regarding a silver Ford Falcon sedan, after the driver escaped two pursuits on Thursday afternoon.

At about 5.30pm on Thursday, January 9, police attempted to stop the silver Ford Falcon sedan travelling north along the Newell Highway near Gurley, after receiving a driving complaint.

Soon after attempting to stop the vehicle, highway patrol police attached to Moree engaged the driver in a short pursuit, which was terminated due to safety reasons.

At 5.43pm, the same vehicle was identified entering the Moree township.


Moree police attempted to stop the vehicle and set up a road spike along the bypass.

The spikes were unsuccessful in stopping the vehicle and the driver continued travelling north on the Newell Highway, towards Boggabilla.

Police engaged in another pursuit, which was again terminated due to the unsafe speed of the driver.

Boggabilla and Goondiwindi police were notified to keep a look-out for the vehicle. It was seen entering the Goondiwindi township and was last seen heading north out of Goondiwindi towards Toowoomba.

Police are now calling for information from the public in relation to the vehicle, which was bearing ACT number plates YBJ-16N.

Police believe those plates do not belong to the vehicle. It was also displaying a green P-plate.

"We're after any information from truck drivers or cars with in-car cameras that might help us identify the occupants of the vehicle," Moree Police officer-in-charge Inspector Martin Burke said.

Inspector Burke said the occupants of the vehicle are believed to be a male driver and female passenger.

If you have any information in relation to this vehicle or its occupants, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
