Queensland police are calling for public assistance to locate a man they say is “connected” to the 2019 murder of a nine-month-old baby.

Last week, Natalie Whitehead appeared in Ipswich court charged with the murder of her son Dexter in June 2019, as well as interfering with his corpse and failing to provide the necessities of life.

On Wednesday, Queensland Police issued a public plea for assistance to locate Andrew Campbell, who they say is “wanted in connection” with the death at Riverview.

Mr Campbell, 41, is understood to have been Ms Whitehead’s partner at the time of Dexter’s death.

He has not made contact with police despite numerous appeals for him to come forward.

“While not considered dangerous to members of the community, anyone with information of his whereabouts should contact police immediately,” a statement from Queensland Police said.

Police say anyone with information about Mr Campbell or his whereabouts should immediately contact them.

Last week, detective inspector David Briese said Dexter’s death had occurred after the child was neglected for “several days”.

“We will be alleging the cause of death was a result of neglect,” he said.
