The family of a man who disappeared in Outback Australia more than a year ago has revealed his final message.
Peter English, 38, sent his family a picture of himself sitting in front of a ‘Welcome to Mount Isa sign’ on February 11, 2019.
The dad-of-two, from Caboolture in Queensland, wrote ‘tick one off the bucket list’ in the message but has not been seen or heard from since.
His father Gary English believes his son is alive and possibly living off grid somewhere in Australia.
‘It just said “tick one off the bucket list” and that’s the last time we heard from him,’ Gary told The Sunday Mail

Peter was experiencing a breakdown of his marriage and lost his job at Boral Asphalt at the time of his disappearance
His car – a Ford Falcon with registration FPV-849 – was seen not long after near Tennant Creet in the Northern Territory.
While his son hasn’t been seen since Mr English is still hopeful he will be found alive.

The family – including Peter’s son Bryce, 7, and daughter Marli, 4 – are desperate to hear from him.
Mr English said his son loved the outdoors – fishing, shooting, dirt biking riding – and could see him on a property mustering cattle, somewhere off the grid.
‘Just get in contact with us and let us know that you’re all right … Let us know that you’re OK, happy, and that’ll give us satisfaction,’ Mr English told The Sunday Mail.
‘And for the kids to know their dad is OK and they might see him one day that would be great.’
