Jesse Baird, Luke Davies missing: Bombshell as a man, 28, hands himself into NSW Police at Bondi after white van manhunt and phone twist


The cop at the centre of a manhunt for two missing men has given himself up to detectives and been arrested after Daily Mail Australia revealed his phone had been switched on again. 

Constable Beau Lamarre-Condon, 28, was wanted for questioning by police after his ex-boyfriend, former Channel 10 presenter Jesse Baird, 26, and Baird’s new partner Luke Davies, 29, vanished from Paddington, in Sydney’s east, on Monday night.

Police hold grave concerns for the couple’s safety after a significant amount of blood was discovered in Baird’s Paddington townhouse. Their belongings were found dumped in a skip bin in Cronulla just after 11am on Wednesday.

Lamarre-Condon vanished in the wake of the two men disappearing after telling his bosses he was going on sick leave and turning his phone off.

On Friday morning, Daily Mail Australia revealed Lamarre-Condon’s phone had shown signs of life after having been switched off for hours.

Police revealed the constable had presented himself to police at Bondi Police Station shortly after 10.30am on Friday.

A spokesman added: ‘The man will be transferred to Waverley Police station where investigations will continue.’ 

Police later confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that he had been arrested but the hunt continues for a missing white van seen outside Mr Baird’s home. 

Detectives have issued an urgent appeal for anyone spotting the white Toyota HiAce with NSW registration CW82PM to contact them immediately.
