A man and woman have been charged in relation to the alleged disappearance of a 36-year-old man, who was last seen at a Northern Territory pub almost a year ago.

Tony Rowe went missing on May 28 last year after he and a friend visited a licensed venue in Darwin’s northern suburbs.

Police charged a 29-year-old man with one count of dangerous act cause death after extraditing him from Queensland earlier in the month.

A 21-year-old woman was charged with making false statements and destruction of evidence after police extradited her from Western Australia.

Both were remanded in custody to appear in the NT Local Court in Darwin on July 12.

Acting Deputy Commissioner Michael White said detectives were one step closer to providing closure to Mr Rowe’s family.

“Missing person’s investigations do not end until the exact circumstances of the disappearance are known and police still have a long way to go before this investigation concludes,” he said.
