Two men have been charged with murder after a body was found in an abandoned quarry. 

Malahki Gray, 25, was found dead at the quarry near Mt Ngungun, north of Brisbane, on Tuesday, bringing to end a two-week search.

Mr Gray, who is from Morayfield, was reported missing on June 4 and was believed to have last been seen alive at a Rupert Crescent address on May 28. 

Queensland Police will allege a 19-year-old man and 22-year-old man lured Mr Gray to a property at Glass House Mountains before stabbing him to death.  

Both have been charged with one count of murder, and misconduct with corpse by interfering, and will appear at Caboolture Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Police say a third man was also taken into custody, however he was released without charge.

Police believe the two men charged over the death were known to Mr Gray. 

Mr Gray’s family told the Courier Mail earlier this week his disappearance was ‘out of character’. 

‘(Malahki) always kept in touch with family… he was on a disability pension, under NDIS care,’ Mr Gray’s father said. 

He said a missing-person report was lodged by Mr Gray’s NDIS carer on June 4 and a second report was lodged by the family on June 5. 

Mr Gray was also known as Malahki Davidson and Jai Gray. His family released a statement confirming his death.

‘We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who shared, helped search and supported our family over the past 14 days during Jai/Malahki’s disappearance,’ they said.

‘It is with deep sadness that we inform you there is no longer a need to continue looking for Jai.

‘We apologise to friends and family who we couldn’t reach directly, given how widely Jai’s missing posts have been shared.

‘Please take this moment to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.

‘Hug them tighter, listen a little longer, be present, say ‘I love you’, take countless pictures together and cherish every second.

‘We kindly ask for privacy during this incredibly difficult time as we grieve and try to heal.’

Queensland Police are continuing investigations and anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stopper on 1800 333 000.
