$250k reward for Chardon killer

Police offer $250,000 in a public appeal to find the killer of Gold Coast woman Novy Chardon, including "indemnity for any accomplice".

The reward has been funded by the state government.

Indemnity from prosecution may be offered to any accomplice who offers information, but this will be at the discretion of the Queensland Police Commissioner.

Mrs Chardon was last seen at her Upper Coomera home on February 6, 2013. Her car was found abandoned near the Nerang train station five days later.

Police believe she was murdered and suspect more than one person was involved.


Last week, police spent three days digging up a Gold Coast hinterland backyard in search of a white ute that may be linked with the case.

Investigators eventually found a Ford F100 ute buried at the Mount Nathan home, but are yet to say whether the find has provided any leads.

The male occupant of the house has denied anything to do with Mrs Chardon's disappearance.

Mrs Chardon's husband, John Chardon, has been a person of interest in the case but has denied any involvement.
