Mystery when a high-flying businessman disappears from a notorious suicide spot moments after leaving his office, his car found parked on the coast.
- Entrepreneur disappears, car parked on a notorious cliff
- Location near where con artist Melissa Caddick was last seen
A massive search has been launched for a missing businessman who went missing near the notorious clifftop suicide spot where con artist Melissa Caddick was last seen.
Businessman Harish Palagummi, 43, went missing on Tuesday from Christison Park in Vaucluse, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. He has not been seen since.
Daily Mail Australia understands that he left his office in Sydney’s CBD at around 3pm. His car was later found parked in the seaside park perched on sheer cliffs that plunge towards huge waves crashing against the rocks below.
The location is near Caddick’s $7 million Dover Heights mansion, where she was last seen leaving, after her home was raided by corporate watchdog, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, in an investigation of $20 million fraud.
She was never seen alive again, and her foot was washed ashore on a remote beach near Tathra on the south coast of New South Wales three months later in February 2021.

The location is near Melissa Caddick’s $7 million dollar mansion in Dover Heights, where she was last seen running before going missing.
Palagummi, a venture capitalist and CEO of online grocery store Geezy Global, last spoke to a family member around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday before disappearing.
“When he was unable to return home and could not be contacted, officers attached to North Shore Police Area Command were notified and inquiries into his whereabouts began,” the NSW Police Force said in a statement.
Police and the family say they have concerns for his well-being.
He is described as being of subcontinental Indian appearance, about 182 cm tall, with a slim build, with short black hair and a wispy beard.
It is believed that he is wearing a pair of blue jeans and a business shirt, and known to frequent the Linfield and Vaucluse areas.
