MYSTERY: Dylan Ray Dickie, 19, was last seen on June 23, 2016. A motorbike he was riding as well as a helmet and gloves were found in Corrabare State Forest about 10 days later but Dylan's body has never been recovered.

ALMOST six years after Dylan Dickie left a house at Cessnock on a motorbike and vanished, his family are no closer to finding out what happened to the "loving, kind and mischievous" 19-year-old.
