    The “devastated” family of former NRL player Chad Robinson, who was last seen leaving his home in Sydney at the weekend, have launched a public appeal to find him.

    Authorities say Robinson, 36, left his home on Crestville Avenue, Kellyville, about 9.30pm on Saturday.

    His family this afternoon addressed the media in the hopes someone has spotted Robinson’s distinctive silver Subaru Outback, with the plates CME54F and damage to the panels on both passenger doors and a left-side mirror.

    “We dearly miss our brother and really want to see him come home,” Robinson’s sister Monique Brennan said through tears.

    "We love him and we can’t imagine life without him so we just ask if anyone has seen Chad or his car, can you please come forward and assist us.

    "We’re absolutely devastated, because it is so out of character and he’s just a beautiful person that wants to help everybody, and it is sad that we just don’t know what to do to help him.”

    She said she had seen her brother about 11.30am on Saturday and that he had spent the day away from his family home, returning about 5.30pm before leaving again at 9.30pm.

    “There wasn’t a fight or an incident like that. There was absolutely nothing like that,” Ms Brennan said.

    “He’s just got in his car without anything, he hasn’t got any shoes on either, you know… he’s just in his shorts and T-shirt, so we just really want him to come home.”

    Ms Brennan an outpouring of support following an appeal on social media, which has been shared more than 1500 times since yesterday, had helped lift the family’s spirits.

    “He is loved by a lot of people, especially in the football community,” she said.

    Robinson has been described as a nature lover who enjoys bushwalking and has previously been known to frequent bush areas around Windsor and Kurrajong.

    He is described as having a Caucasian appearance, is around 185cm tall with a muscular build, fair complexion and brown eyes and hair.

    Robinson made his NRL debut in 2000 and played 160 games for the Paramatta Eels and the Sydney Roosters.

    He is the elder brother of Cronulla Sharks player Tim Robinson.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    ‘I just want to talk to him to know he’s still here’: Devastated brother of NRL star who vanished eight nights ago opens up on the mystery
    Former NRL player Chad Robinson, 36, disappeared eight nights ago
    His younger brother, Tim Robinson, said he is worried about his safety
    Chad was last seen at his Sydney home in Sydney’s on November 26
    He was driving a silver Subaru Outback with damage to its passenger side
    His family has said his behaviour was ‘totally out of character’

    The younger brother of former NRL star Chad Robinson said he has rarely slept since the 36-year-old disappeared eight nights ago and spends the evenings hoping to hear his voice again.

    Cronulla Sharks player Tim Robinson and his family have been desperately searching for Chad since he vanished from his home in Sydney’s Beaumont Hills on November 26 without his phone or wallet and wearing only shorts and a t-shirt.

    But with no word from the former Parramatta and Sydney Roosters forward, Mr Robinson said his heart continues to ache for his older brother, according to the Courier Mail.

    'I’m lying in bed, I’m trying to get some sleep and all I’m thinking is, “what’s he doing right now, where is he, where did he go?”, ’ Mr Robinson said.

    ‘Just to talk to him, hear his voice. Just to know that … he’s still here.’

    Mr Robinson said Chad, who has three children, maintains his brother’s disappearance is completely out of character and nothing the family saw coming.

    Chad had a hard time adjusting from the professional football world after he retired but he had never feared for the 36-year-old’s welfare, calling him ‘a smart guy who always lands on his feet,’ he said.

    Chad’s sister, Monique Brennan, who fought back tears during a press conference last week, said the family is ‘extremely concerned’ for his safety and well being.

    ‘We are desperately seeking assistance from the community,’ Ms Brennan said.

    ‘We dearly miss our brother and really want to see him come home.’

    Flanked by family members Ms Brennan sad she had absolutely no idea where her brother may have went but told awaiting media that he did enjoy the outdoors and liked finding waterfalls.

    She also said that he has never before left home without returning or telling someone where he was going.

    ‘As you know he doesn’t have a phone or any money which is a grave concern, he hasn’t got any shoes on either,’ she said.

    Inspector Matt Harris said at the press conference that he held ‘grave concerns’ for the father of three and urged anybody that had information about the disappearance to come forward.

    His family has also pleaded for help on social media.

    Ms Brennan said via Facebook Chad was last seen in Beaumont Hills driving his silver Subaru Outback, registration CME54F, with damage to its passenger side.


    Chad played six seasons for the Parramatta Eels (pictured) and three for the Sydney Roosters in 2000-08, including in the 2003 and 2004 NRL Grand Finals

    ‘If anyone comes across him or the car, could you please contact any of the family or the police. As you can imagine we are very concerned for his welfare,’ she wrote.

    He is 185 centimetres tall with dark, receding hair.

    Chad played six seasons for the Parramatta Eels and three for the Sydney Roosters in 2000-08, including in the 2003 and 2004 NRL Grand Finals.

    In 2009 he moved to London to play for the Harlequins but was released after one season because of a persistent knee injury.

    He retired and became an asset finance broker for United Financial Services, Brightside Money and KJ Cooper Financial Solutions in Sydney.

    Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers.

  • The longer this drags you get that awful feeling .

    A Father of 3 kids to just disappear with no trace , has no phone or Money can’t be good and his Accounts not touched.

    Can only hope somehow this ends well.



  • His poor family, not a situation you would wish on anyone. Fingers crossed that this somehow has a happy ending. Not knowing what has happened to a loved family member or friend would absolutely rip your soul out. Hope his 3 kids are coping as good as you could hope for in a situation like this.



  • I’m guessing he hasn’t been on social media (assuming he uses it). That could give you an idea of his welfare. Terrible situation for his family.
