    Penno: Part 5 "The Final Chapter"

    In this fifth and final episode of The Missing Files’ series on the disappearance of Jayden Penno-Tompsett, we explore the findings of a Coronial Inquest into Jayden’s disappearance, speak with a world-renowned Private Investigator who is taking on the case, host a round table discussion with all members of The Missing Files team and hear from Jayden’s loved ones including mum, Rachel, Aunty Relle Harwood and good mate Jayson “Hungy” Hungerford. 
    Wrong location for the search?  Mobile data tracking to help?  Which theory is now the most likely outcome?  We explore all of this and more in PENNO: Part 5 “THE FINAL CHAPTER”.

    Penno: Part 4
     In this fourth episode just days prior to the Coronial Inquest into Jayden’s disappearance, we hear from one of the boys in Cairns who breaks his silence and makes two new startling claims.  That Lucas tried to sell his car in Cairns and that Jayden’s and Lucas’s argument could have been a violent one.
     And why have the police not offered a reward for information leading to Jayden’s whereabouts?  We read letters obtained by The Missing Files Podcast with responses from Police and the at time Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton.

    Penno: Part 1
     Jayden Penno-Tompsett vanished from Charters Towers, Queensland after a 20 hour drive from Newcastle, NSW with travel companion Lucas Tattersall on New Year’s Eve 2017.
     What happened to him between the hours of 3am and 11am on the 31st December remains a mystery.
     In this first episode we speak with Jayden’s mum, Rachel, his best mate Jayson “Hungy” Hungerford and discuss the theories from logical to unfathomable.
     Was Jayden the victim of a serial killer on the unforgiving Highway of Death?  Did he perish in the harsh Queensland terrain?  Was he executed for a long running debt to drug dealers?  Or was he responsible for his own actions?

Twinnie ttt ,

Great podcast

I finally had time to listen and very impressed with how thoroughly this is being looked into. I hope there is closure for the family soon and Jayden is found!

Disgraced former Superintendent story idea...

Hey, you guys should do an episode on Operation Errigal and the high-ranking bald, middle-aged pen-pusher who got caught-up with sexy Officer A. Ask Mick about it. I’m enjoying keeping up with Mick’s monthly guest appearances at the Downing Centre. He should get some good material for the podcast in his two years behind bars. You should call your show ‘The Missing Phone’...Mick couldn’t find his for the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission. Seriously, why have you got the most hated bloke in the NSW Police on your podcast? If you think Mick’s giving you credibility you’re sorely mistaken...paper cuts and knifing people in the back are his specialty.

Relle H ,

Really well done guys 👍
