According to Victoria Police, this morning's search of the Lipton Drive club house followed new information they were given in their investigation into Mr Giakoumis' disappearance.

The club house is the last place where the 29-year-old, who police believe was not a patched member of the Hells Angels OMCG, was known to have been seen, back in the early hours of Wednesday, 10 June 2020.

Mr Giakoumis had arrived in Melbourne from Adelaide on 5 June, 2020 with two people who police believe are members of the OMCG.

He had told his family that he was planning to do concreting work in Melbourne.

Mr Giakoumis regularly spoke with his family after he arrived in Melbourne.

But he stopped contacting them on Wednesday, 10 June 2020, when he didn't board his flight home to Adelaide.

A taskforce has been established to investigate Kerry’s disappearance and suspected murder.

Police believe it is likely a dispute occurred on 10 June 2020, which may be connected to members or associates of the Hells Angels OMCG.

Detectives searched several properties, including the Thomastown clubhouse, in June last year.

Several public appeals have also been made since Mr Giakoumis' disappearance and investigators are again asking for anyone with information to come forward.

Detectives are particularly keen to speak to anyone who has information about what happened at the clubhouse or any other location in the early hours of 10 June.

They would also like to hear from anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the Jackson’s Creek area around the time Mr Giakoumis went missing.

Police have released a new image of a man they are trying to identify as part of this appeal.

This man was seen in a group of men who were in company with Mr Giakoumis on the night of his disappearance.

Anyone with information about Mr Giakoumis' disappearance is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
