Bush Advocate, 12 April 1904
... Information was received by Sergeant Cruickshank this morning that a man named George Pawson, a partner in a sawmill in the Weber district, has been missing since yesterday morning. From what we can learn of the circumstances, it appears that, contrary to his custom, Pawson after breakfast yesterday morning, instructed his mate not to yoke the bullocks up, saying that he would take the gun and go and look for some pheasants. He then left camp and has not since been heard of. He was dressed in his ordinary working clothes at the time, and nothing unusual has been noticed in the demeanour of late, but a few days ago he sent in with one of the carters a bag containing some personal trinkets which has given rise to the suspicion that it may be a case of suicide.
