The investigation dates back to 2016 when Peta Butler – now aged 27 and who has given the Queensland Police Service permission to identify her – attended the Wynnum police station to report the historic case.

As a 15-year-old, Ms Butler’s mother took her on a trip from their home in Brisbane to Toowoomba.

Ms Butler’s mother has since been convicted of arranging for a man to rape her there.

Ms Butler’s mother was arrested in October 2016 and in January of this year, pled guilty to procuring a youth for carnal knowledge in the Ipswich District Court and is now serving a jail sentence.

Detectives are now working with Ms Butler to find the man who raped her in 2005.

The man is described as being in his mid-to-late 40s at the time, extremely obese, around 175 centimetres tall with a shaved head, stubble and distinctive bulging blue eyes.

He was wearing an expensive suit and drove a car with cream coloured leather seats.

He is known only as ‘Thommo’ and would now be aged in his 50s.

It is believed the man also used an email address similar to thommo_thommo_thommo@hotmail.com.

Anyone who may recognise him, has knowledge of his movements or knows anything that may help identify him is urged to contact Policelink, Crime Stoppers or their local police station.

Police also believe it is likely the man has hurt other girls and women.

Anyone who believes they have been hurt by this man is urged to visit their local police station and speak with investigators.
