Whiticker, Mullins and Hayes

Alan Whiticker and Stuart Mullins have known each other since they were seventeen. They both attended the same teacher’s college at Penrith at the close of the 1970s.Nepean College of Advanced Education now the University of Western Sydney.


In the 1990s Mullins & Whiticker could not be accused of being fashionable.

 Years later Alan teamed up with Stuart to produce Searching for the Beaumont Children 2006 which became a best-seller

Why they teamed up? Mullins was born in Glenelg in the late 1950s. He grew up in Seacombe Gardens which is not more than a few suburbs south from where the Beaumont children lived at Somerton Park. Mullins cousin Mostyn Matters was the Glenelg Detective in January 1966 that initially spoke to Mr Beaumont regarding his missing children. 

With new information, Mullins hired Bill Hayes in 2008 arguably South Australia’s best private detective. Relentlessly they have pursued Phipps and the truth. With Hayes valuable assistance Phipps is now regarded as the No 1 suspect in relation to this case 



The wolf in the disappearance of the Beaumont children has never been too far from the door.
