    All hope is gone as police reveal Kiesha is dead

    IT IS the conclusion police hoped they would never have to reach.
    Six months after six-year-old Kiesha Abrahams disappeared, officers will tell the coroner the missing western Sydney schoolgirl is dead.
    Police had refused to rule out the possibility Kiesha was abducted from her Mt Druitt home during the night, or that she wandered into the hands of the wrong person.
    Now homicide detectives said they were treating her disappearance as a murder.

    Police plead for new Kiesha Abrahams information
    SIX months may have passed, but the search for missing Mt Druitt girl Kiesha Abrahams continues in earnest.
    Speaking to the Mt Druitt St Marys Standard this week, the officer in charge of the investigation, Det-Insp Russell Oxford, said homicide squad detectives are still based at Mt Druitt police station and are ``hitting the streets’’ every day in an effort to either locate the missing six-year-old or determine her fate.
    He said investigators are still treating a number of people as suspects but added that police were still hopeful that somebody would offer up some new information on the young girl’s whereabouts.

    Detectives don't believe Kiesha was kidnapped
    Six months after she was reported missing, police have all but ruled out family claims that Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams was kidnapped from her home.
    The six-year-old's mother and step-father reported the disappearance on August 1, but police found no-one outside the immediate family had seen the girl for three weeks.
    Kiesha Abrahams' mother said the girl had been abducted from her bedroom in Mt Druitt in Sydney's west.
    The head of the investigation, Detective Inspector Russell Oxford, has told the ABC that blood matching Kiesha Abrahams' DNA has been found in the home, but the samples are too small to prove she fell victim to violence.
    He says forensic investigators have failed to find any trace of an intruder.

    Jogging memories on Kiesha Abrahams through film
    SAAD Adam remembers the day Kiesha Abrahams went missing and said like many others he thought the ordeal would be over within a few hours.

    ``I thought she’d be returned to her family and that would be the end of it,’’ he said.

    But almost eight months later, the whereabouts of the six-year-old remains a mystery. Like the Lindy Chamberlain case 30 years ago, many people have come forward with strong accusations of what they think happened to Kiesha.

    Some hold hopes that the little girl is still alive.

    Should a rose garden replace Kiesha Abraham's toy memorial?
    A SEA of colourful toys, candles and flowers once covered the front of missing Mt Druitt girl Kiesha Abrahams’ home on Woodstock Ave.
    But, eight months since her disappearance, most of the tributes have been cleared and the remaining items are only a fragment of the grand community shrine that once existed.
    Ahead of Kiesha’s seventh birthday on April 22, some residents want to install a living memorial in the form of a flower garden in place of weathering teddy bears and letters.

    On her birthday all hope is lost
    IN THE cool, pre-dawn haze, only the sound of dogs barking and a flickering police torch light through the trees hinted at the chaos that was to descend on Sydney's west.

    After more than eight months of investigation, public speculation and heart-rending hope, the couple allegedly responsible for killing little Kiesha Abrahams were laid bare.

    In a short, dark laneway behind a quiet suburban street in Shalvey, near Mount Druitt, her parents were arrested about 1am yesterday. The clock had just ticked over into what would have been Kiesha's seventh birthday.

    Love for Kiesha beats flames
    NOT even a devastating fire can stop the outpouring of grief for murdered six-year-old Kiesha Abrahams.
    Just hours after a teddy bear tumbled on to a candle, sending Kiesha's memorial wall up in flames, mourners had begun to rebuild the display.
    The blackened fence outside Kiesha's former home on Woodstock Ave, Mt Druitt, was decorated with fresh flowers, toys and cards soon after firefighters left yesterday.

    Tears in the lonely bush for Kiesha Abrahams
    The wider tracks give way to smaller tracks until, eventually, there is no track left at all and you find walking through scrub with twigs and leaves underneath until, in this case, you come to an opening of freshly scraped earth.
    For four hours on Sunday Alison Anderson walked the trails trying to find this place.
    It was necessary because this is the place police believe was the final resting place of Kiesha Abrahams, the girl reported missing by her mother, Kristi Abrahams, and stepfather, Rob Smith, in August. On Friday they were charged with her murder.

    Kristi Abrahams appeared at Penrith Local Court via video link, with her hair tied back and dressed in a green prison tracksuit.

    Her co-accused, Kiesha's step-father Robert Smith, was not required to appear.
