He intended to work for them for six weeks before travelling on to New Zealand.

On the day of his disappearance – 2 August 1970 – Mr Rogers and had been drinking with a friend, a work colleague and they attended a party in Beachport.

When the friend left the party to take his girlfriend home, he asked another man to take Mr Rogers home.

This other man firstly dropped a woman home, before returning to the party for Mr Rogers.

However, the Canadian traveller was no longer there and has not been seen or heard of since.

He was reported as a missing person at Beachport Police Station at 10.30am on that same day by his friend.
