Very sad, what is our country coming to when you can't walk home from the 'pub' in a nice neighborhood safely
My thoughts are with her family

This kind of thing is terrifying to me. That in this day and age a woman can just vanish like that in a busy area. I do worry for my daughter, although statistically that is probably irrational, I just wish people had the freedom to walk safely wherever, whenever.

This story is so upsetting. Oh how I hope for her to be suddenly found alive and safe. My thoughts are with her distraught family.

It is very sad. It reminds me of our (W.A.) claremont girls that went missing almost 15 years ago. That was unsolved (even though a couple of their bodies were found) even though I did not know them or their family it still shakes me to the core even today. The fact that someone can go missing in a busy area yet no one saw anything.

Before this I'd never heard of the abduction attempts that had been happening around there a lot, had anyone else?

It seems like someone she knows. Her handbag was planted or only found, a few days later in an area the police had already searched?...
It usually does end up being someone the person knows especially in a busy area!

There was a conversation this morning, and one of my friends said she thought they said on the news that she was also seen in the area at 3am....did anyone else hear that?
I thought the last she was seen was around 1.30am. I saw her mum on the news too, and just felt so sad for her.

yes, i did hear the warnings. We have moved our regular Wednesday dinner from my friend's place to mine this week because i don't actually live in Brunswick, and there is plenty of parking right outside my place.
I'm taking the near miss reports with a grain of salt, though- i think in these situations there are some terrible attention seekers around, and also general hysteria. Two of the women allegedly (I haven't seen the FB page) had people follow/watch them from cars, and one had a hearsay story of her cousin (?? I think) who someone tried to drag into a car. I heard on the radio this morning that none of these situations was reported to police, surely if someone tried to drag you into a car you'd tell the police about it?
