Twenty volunteers met on Lawlers Creek Road Dalmeny this morning to resume the search for missing Dalmeny man Ray Speechley.

Mr Speechley, who was suffering dementia, left IRT Dalmeny three years ago and more than 12 searches have failed to find any trace of him.

Volunteers on Saturday, July 6, planned to search the gully closest to where he was last seen near the Bodalla State Forest.

His daughter Nikii Smith said she had determined from police and coroner's records that searchers scouted tracks around the gully, but did not scour it.

"It shouldn't take too long to search the gully with 20 people helping," Ms Smith said.

Before heading out on the search, Ms Smith described what Mr Speechley was wearing when he went missing; she also showed searchers some samples of animal bones that had taken on different colours, depending on where they were found.

"We are also looking for a tin of liniment that we think he may have been carrying when he disappeared," Miss Smith said.
