Friends of a 40-year-old Fremantle real estate agent who is missing close to where a raging bushfire started in Margaret River say they are worried about his health and have asked him to contact police urgently. The plea comes as WA Police refuse to comment on whether officers wanted to speak to Jordan Marshall in relation to the out-of-control bushfire’s ignition near Contos and Redgate, where it is understood White Gum Valley resident was last seen. Police issued an “urgent welfare concern” alert at 5.47pm on Wednesday after he was last seen in the area that morning. A close friend of Mr Marshall told the Augusta Margaret River Times the realtor and separated father of three was “spiralling down” and friends and family were holding hopes he would get in touch. Mr Marshall no longer has a phone or a vehicle. “I’d very much like to hear from him,” the friend said. “I know he’s not well. He’s not been taking drugs. He’s got a mental health condition.’ The friend had not spoken with Mr Marshall since Sunday when the keen surfer and fisherman was headed to Margaret River. Mr Marshall’s father Ross declined to comment on his son’s whereabouts or reports he attended Mammoth Cave on Wednesday morning after crashing his four-wheel drive in a distressed state. The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, which is managing the fire, did not immediately respond to questions from The West Australian. Mr Marshall made news in June when he and fellow realtor Paul Marriott had a close encounter off Rottnest with a 4m great white. The encounter was filmed by Mr Marshall who told 9News “it was quite daunting actually”. Mr Marshall was described as having a solid build with short brown hair and brown eyes. He is about 170cm tall. Police have asked anyone with information of the whereabouts of Mr Marshall to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at crimestopperswa.com.au.
