A body has been found in a barrel on the back of a ute amid a widescale search for a missing teenage girl in south-east Queensland.

The manhunt began yesterday after police were called to a property in Buccan, south of Brisbane, over the disappearance of Larissa Beilby, reports 9 news.

The 16-year-old was reported missing from Sandgate almost two weeks ago, and has not contacted her family since June 18.

A suspected murderer is on the run after the body was found stuffed inside a barrel on the back of a ute south of Brisbane.

Police are hunting for a man who fled from a property at Buccan in Logan when they went to investigate a missing person on Wednesday afternoon.

He escaped in a black ute with a barrel loaded onto the tray. Police were able to track it to a mobile home park at Stapylton, 20 minutes away, where officers found the badly decomposed body inside the barrel.

The man was able to get away once again, and police believe he’s now driving a silver Holden Commodore with the registration 966WKB.

The body has not been formally identified.

Detective Superintendent Mark White said an investigation centre had been set up at Logan and a number of detectives from Logan, the Gold Coast and the Homicide Investigation Unit were conducting enquiries.

“As you can appreciate, there’s a fairly intensive forensic examination that is occurring as we speak and will continue to occur possibly for the next 24-48 hours, depending on how things go,” he said.

Detectives investigating the homicide of a person in Logan have released the identity of a 34-year-old man they believe may able to assist with their active inquiries into the case.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is urged not to approach him but to contact police immediately.
