Police investigating the disappearance of Brisbane man Samuel Thompson believe they have found a body in a pine forest at Caboolture, north of Brisbane.

Early this afternoon, police confirmed they had established a crime scene following the discovery of “possible human remains” at the location this morning.

“At this stage, it is too early to confirm further details about the discovery,” police said in a statement.

Mr Thompson, 22, was last seen alive almost a month ago.

Last week, anti-Islamic State fighter Ashley Dyball, 25, was one of two men charged with Mr Thompson’s murder and interfering with a corpse.

Dyball was remanded in custody after a brief court appearance on Saturday.

A 23-year-old Bald Hills man appeared in court on the same charges on Friday.

Mr Thompson, 22, was last seen driving in Brisbane’s northern suburbs after leaving his apartment in Albion on March 7.

Two days later, his distinctive car, a Ford Mustang with the licence plate SAMMO, was found abandoned near Byron Bay in northern New South Wales.
