Australind police acting officer-in-charge Sen. Sgt Chris Clelland said the bicycle was now a focus and anyone with information needed to contact police.

“The bike is important for us now, if anyone has picked it up we need to know,” Sen. Sgt Clelland said.

“If someone just thought it was an abandoned bike and picked it up, we just need to know if it has been found or where it was last seen.”
