Picture: Cindy Baker THE daughter of missing man Paul Anthony Baker, has made a heartfelt plea to the public for information into his whereabouts. Mr Baker, 60, was last seen on Edith Farms Rd, 30km north of Katherine on August 6. NT Police first called publicly for information on August 18. A later release stated it was believed Mr Baker might have attempted to hitchhike from a shopping centre in Katherine back to his property at Edith Farms Rd via the Stuart Hwy. Cindy Baker, who described her father as her best friend, appealed to the pub lic for any bit of information. We are desperate to find him as he is a much-loved member of our family and we are extremely worried about him, she said. He has not contacted any family or friends since this time, which is out of character. He often travelled to remote areas of the NT and WA and is an experienced bushman. He may have travelled to a remote location in the NT, WA or SA. Ms Baker said that at the time, her fathers mental health was not in an ideal place. On August 28, NT Police began an air, road and land search for Mr Baker around Edith Farms Rd and the sur rounding area. Two days later the search, which included help from the Territory Response Group, local aircraft resources, Katherine police and NT Emergency Service volunteers, was suspended. Mr Baker is described as 160cm tall with a fair complexion and mousy brown/ greyish hair. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeved cobalt blue shirt with Kimberley Revegetation Seeds embroidered above the left pocket. The shirt was ripped along the front and upper sleeve. He also wore a faded, dark blue baseball cap and dark pants. NT Police Superintendent Craig Garland said the efforts of authorities had revealed no signs of Mr Baker. Northern Territory Police have conducted an extensive air and land search for Mr Baker, he said. Ground crews and helicopters have searched Mr Bakers property, and a significant amount of bushland that surrounds his property, with no signs of him. Katherine detectives have conducted an extensive investigation into Mr Bakers whereabouts but have had no success. Anyone with information is urged to report it to 131 444 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers on 1300 333 000. Please quote reference number 9757216.

Consider playing all the same tunes that give you the feels and your plants could reap the benefits, he said. Claims that plants can be encouraged to grow quicker, stronger or more abundantly if theyre exposed to certain types of music or sound are not new. Prince Charles has long advocated talking to plants. But according to Brett Summerell, chief botanist with Sydneys Botanic Gardens and Centennial Parklands, most studies into the link between music and plant growth have not been particularly robust. A large proportion of it is hokey, with a little skerrick of science, he said. TV HOST Jamie Durie wants to help your plants grow by playing them his personal selection of feel-good acoustic hits. The celebrity landscaper has teamed up with Spotify to produce a plant-friendly playlist of uplifting tunes including Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles and Count On Me by Bruno Mars.
