Grave concerns for missing Tas man

AAP logoAAP 13/10/2016

Police suspect foul play is involved in the disappearance of a Tasmanian man who has been missing for almost three months.

Forensic officers have searched the home of Ulverstone man Noel Joseph Ingham who was reported missing last week.

He has not been seen since he visited his doctor on July 22.

Detective Senior Sergeant David Chapman said while it was early in the investigation, police held fears for the missing man.

"Our concerns for him are grave, but there are many scenarios and possibilities we are exploring," Sen Sgt Chapman said.

"There is a possibility Mr Ingham may have become a victim of foul play."

Mr Ingham was a quiet man who had occasional visitors after moving to Tasmania a few years ago, he said.

The 58-year-old has no family on the Apple Isle.

Sen Sgt Chapman declined to comment on what was found in the search of Mr Ingham's home.

Nor would he comment on information provided by neighbours during a doorknock of the area on Thursday.

Police have made inquiries at the airport and Spirit of Tasmania to check if Mr Ingham had left the state.

Mr Ingham's 2002 silver Jeep Grand Cherokee is also missing.
