    Today marks 1 year that Sandrine has been missing. Prayers that her family find the answers they are searching for, 1 year is too long for her children to not know where their mum is. Someone MUST know something, I hope this anniversary prompts someone to come forward.

    A year already...

    Queensland has 'lost' a lot of women over the past couple of years. Sandrine reminds me of Novy Chardon - a good mother who'd never leave her kids.

    While I do suspect Novy's ex husband in her case, the parallels are there. And their areas are about equally distant from Brisbane, only in opposite directions..

    Sandrine, I hope you're alive and well somewhere, and that you'll come home soon to your kids.

    (I don't got a good feeling about this, however, WS..)

    Detectives investigating the disappearance of 38-year-old Sandrine Jourdan continue to hold grave concerns for her safety and are renewing their appeal for public assistance with today marking one year since she disappeared.Sandrine image

    Ms Jourdan was last seen around 3pm on Friday July 13, 2012 on Tomlinson Road at Caboolture.

    Police continue to appeal for information from motorists driving near Tomlinson Road or on any of the major arterial roads in the area, such as the D’Aguilar Highway, Old Gympie Road and Beerburrum Road, to contact Crime Stoppers if they recall seeing a woman hitch-hiking in the area that afternoon.

    “One phone call could be all it takes to find out where Jourdan is. Crime Stoppers is anonymous. No one needs to know who you are, but making that call is the right thing to do.

    What might seem small or insignificant to you could in fact hold vital information for police. If you haven’t previously contacted us, I urge you to do so now,” Detective Senior Constable Steve Watts, Moreton District Criminal Investigation Branch said.

    Police conducted extensive searches in the Caboolture area last year, including bushland areas in and around Tomlinson Road. Despite the searches, which included large numbers of SES personnel, the whereabouts of Ms Jourdan remains unknown.

    She is described as Caucasian, 164cms tall with a proportionate build, long brown hair and brown eyes.Sandrine with jumper (Small)

    At the time of her disappearance, Ms Jourdan was wearing a light mauve long sleeve jumper (as shown in picture 2) and dark dress pants.

    Ms Jourdan has been known to frequent camping grounds in the Caboolture, Kilcoy, MoretonIsland, Kenilworth and SunshineCoast areas.

    Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.

    For all non-urgent police reporting or general police inquiries contact Policelink on 131 444 or Policelink.qld.gov.au 24hrs a day.

    Sandrine is 38 years old. I thought from the MSM pictures she was a lot younger.

    IMO this is because Allison and family were well off and from an affluentual suburb in Brisbane. Sandrine is a single mother from the low socioeconomic suburb of caboolture. I live nearby from where she went missing and unfortunately it's always the same story out here. Sandrine is not the first to go missing from this suburb and yet nobody seems to be investigating further. I hope she is found or at the very least what happened to her is discovered, her poor children.

    Two years on Sandrine Jourdan still missing. Can you assist?

    July 13, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    Detectives continue to investigate the disappearance of 38-year-old Caboolture woman, Sandrine Jourdan with today marking two years since she disappeared. Police continue to hold grave concerns for her safety and are renewing their appeal for public assistance.

    Ms Jourdan was last seen around 5pm on Friday July 13, 2012 on Tomlinson Road at Caboolture.

    Police are appealing for anyone with any information particularly motorists who were driving near Tomlinson Road or on any of the major arterial roads in the area, such as the D’Aguilar Highway, Old Gympie Road and Beerburrum Road, around the time of her disappearance to contact Crime Stoppers if they recall seeing a woman hitch-hiking in the area.

    Detective Sergeant Gary Beddoes, Moreton District Criminal Investigation Branch said that just one phone call with one piece of information could be all it would take to find Sandrine Jourdan.

    “Crime Stoppers is anonymous. No one needs to know who you are, but making that call is the right thing to do,” Detective Seargeant Beddoes said.

    “What might seem small or insignificant to you could in fact hold vital information for police. If you haven’t previously contacted us, I urge you to do so now.”

    I can't believe it's been 2 years, and still nothing. I saw a story about Sandrine on the news the other night, there wasn't any new information, just the same about her going missing from a male friends house and her kids missing her terribly. It really breaks my heart. Her mother believes that Sandrine is no longer with us, and sadly I agree. There's no way this mum would have abandoned her children like this. I just hope that someone knows something that will help bring this case to a close. Her family deserves to know what happened that day.

    Sandrine Jourdan missing two years and still no answers

    Two years ago, Sandrine Jourdan walked up a friend’s Sunshine Coast driveway and simply disappeared. The Caboolture woman has not accessed her bank accounts, used her phone or wished any of her three children a happy birthday since then. She vanished – and her family just wants to know what happened to her.

    For Sandrine’s sister Christine Day it has been two long years of waiting, wishing and hoping with not a single clue as to her fate.

    “I honestly don’t know, as far as I know, she’s dead, there is no way she would not contact us,” Ms Day said. “She did have a few issues before she went missing, she was saying she was afraid before she went missing and we sometimes get reports of people saying, ‘I just saw her’ but so far there has been nothing concrete.”

    Sandrine had broken up with her partner the month before she disappeared and was staying with friends and family. She had just secured a new place to live when she vanished. Ms Day said after two years the police investigation had gone cold.

    A coroner will now rule on Sandrine’s fate. Ms Day said her fears for her sister were heightened when the body of Tia Landers, also a Caboolture woman, was found dumped near the Glass House Mountains last week.

    A man and woman have been charged with her murder. “My sister’s case is being classed as a walk off or suicide but for Tia’s body to be found where my sister went missing, it has raised a lot of alarm bells for me,” she said.

    Ms Day said that as a concerned sister she was frustrated the police investigation yielded no clues. “Because it’s been two years they say, ‘we have investigated and done everything now we’re leaving it to the coroner’.

    “They have told us she’s a runaway or a suicide, hopefully she’ll just show up one day but after two years, it’s one of those things.

    “We don’t want to give up, we need to know the answers. My main objective is not to stop until I do have answers and I don’t care whose toes I step on.”

    Family of missing Australian mother Sandrine Jourdan vows to crack case

    Lots of information about this case on the link, I feel for the family being left in the dark much of the time.

    http://www.news.com.au/national/quee...7432415f0428d2

    WHOEVER made Queensland mother-of-three Sandrine Jourdan disappear seriously underestimated her family’s determination to get her back.
    The beautiful landscaper was 37 when she was last seen at the Caboolture home of her friend John Boegheim, an heir to the multi-million dollar Hema Maps family dynasty, on the afternoon of July 13, 2012.
    Mr Boegheim, also a landscaper by trade, is one of three men Sandrine’s family believe may know more about her last movements than they have said.
    The second man is an amateur actor and musician who cannot legally be named, on whose birthday Sandrine vanished. According to friends and family, the pair were in contact that morning and planned to set off to a Buddhist retreat that day.
    The third is her ex-boyfriend Ian Cannard. The pair split about two months before Sandrine went missing and she had been staying with relatives and friends while organising a new place for herself.

    And from same article

    After chatting to Mr Boegheim’s former neighbours, Ms Millar realised the property adjacent to Mr Boegheim’s former home had not in fact been searched. Neither had some of the other neighbouring properties.
    Six months ago, with the permission of the current owners, Ms Millar went with Sandrine’s niece and her boyfriend to look for clues. They concentrated on the tree line at the foot of the five acre block at the back of the paddock where the owner recalled once having seen Mr Boegheim struggling to retrieve plants that had washed across during flooding.
    “We took maybe 15 steps on to the back of (name withheld)’s property and we’ve seen some shredded purple material caught on a (fallen) tree with some sort of frame structure surrounding it,” Ms Millar told news.com.au.
    “We kept going, kept digging and we got down around a foot deep and found more of the purpley-mauve material, a bra, something green and deteriorated that looked like a little hippy bag, which she was carrying. Sandrine was last seen wearing a mauve top and black dress pants. “The stuff was all wrapped in sort of a black plastic sheet and a massive roll of carpet. After digging approximately a foot, we found the black dress pants (and Sandrine’s) niece just started shaking. She had this look on her face. We just thought, Jesus, if we keep going are we going to find her body?
    “As soon as we found the dress pants we called the police. We did keep going and we found a heap of stuff, some beer cans, a screwdriver and a beautiful shell. We were wearing gloves and all the stuff we found we had bagged. I ended up calling over the woman who owned the property and she didn’t know anything about the clothes,” she said.
    That night officers confiscated the items the group had found and gave them a receipt listing everything before ordering them to leave the property.

    Informative Blog Posts

    I have found two informative blog posts by a friend of Sandrine's, who Sandrine had been living with shortly before she disappeared.


    "On the evening of Wednesday the 11th of July I had another phone call from Sandrine, she was concerned about the POI, as apparently he had threatened to kill himself. She told me that he wasn’t answering her calls and she asked me to call him, which I did, but there was no answer until the next day, the 12th of July. By the 13th of July, 2012, the day of Sandrine’s disappearance, which is also the day of the POI’s birthday, the POI was very clearly still furious with her, and demanded to know what she had told me. I told him that Sandrine was concerned about him and he proceeded to blame Sandrine for his problems, the last message he wrote to me on the day of Sandrine’s disappearance is this, a direct copy and paste: Facebook User 7/13, 8:34am Facebook User: I am gonna talk to Sandrine now and find out the WHOLE story once and for all."

    Read more of part one: https://pietamorgan.wordpress.com/20...drine-jourdan/


    Part two includes video interviews done by A Current Affair with three persons of interest, and suggests that another person of interest (Sandrine's ex, Ian Cannard) may also have known something or been involved. Sandrine's friend doesn't seem suspicious of the third person of interest, John Boegheim. She discusses why the police have failed so thoroughly to investigate Sandrine's disappearance properly, and suggests a possible motive. I think incompetence or something akin to laziness or nonchalance (because Sandrine was a single mum without much money) probably accounts for it and there isn't a cover up going on, but hey, who knows.


    "The Sandrine Jourdan ‘missing person’ case has recently been raised again, not by the police, but by some of Sandrine’s tenacious family members and friends, and with a lot help from the media.

    It has been 4 years since Sandrine’s disappearance and there has been a lot of confusion about the circumstances, but more and more information that had been previously given to police as evidence, once ignored and forgotten, is coming out in public eye. The trouble is, not all of it is correct."

    Read more of part two: https://pietamorgan.wordpress.com/20...urdan-part-ii/


    Here is a link to the A Current Affair video http://www.aonproductions.com.au/fil...ne-Jourdan.mp4

    While I find some of Borgheim's responses in the interview suspicious - this could well be because it is a painful subject to discuss and he has gone over it many times. When he is asked "can you think of anyone who would want to hurt Sandrine?" and he replies "again, there's different possibilities there, but I can't prove anything" I think that is a genuine response - he seems suspicious of other people, but he is unable to prove it. Cannard, on the other hand, blames her "troubled mind" and Ainsworth shoots his mouth off about how "all of this @#$%! has devastated me." So he seems a lot more concerned about how her disappearance has affected him than about her disappearance itself, to me.


    For anyone who is interested, after a curiosity google, I have also had a look at Bradley Ainsworth's youtube account, which you can find here https://www.youtube.com/user/TheMajicmirra/videos . I haven't really watched many of the videos - there are a LOT - but he was posting a lot of videos 6-7 years ago (2010-2011ish) about something called Majic Mirra, seems to just be a video question system to record biographical details but also has weird "fortune telling" clips, something called "Kult - How Close We Came to Extinction", and a bunch of stuff about UFO sightings. Then he posts nothing until 10 months ago, when he starts uploading a lot of his songs. To me, a lot of the song titles are creepy. One album is called "Busking with the Devil." But really nothing on his youtube channel suggests anything other than he is a bit out of the 'ordinary' - having known many people who don't live a typical 9 to 5 life, there doesn't seem to be anything here that is so far out there as to be truly concerning. But I have linked for those who are curious, as I was.

    Whoops, there is a part three

    "Brad Ainsworth has no alibi on the day Sandrine went missing.

    I spoke personally with the ‘officer’ assigned to Sandrine’s case, Steve Watts. Steve Watts told me, when he came to take a ‘statement’, 94 weeks after Sandrine went missing, that Brad had an alibi and was at his mother’s house the afternoon Sandrine went missing. But, according to Brad’s own words, this is simply not true.


    I quote Bradley Ainsworth, and, as previously, have copied this message word for word:


    “And I was at Mums all morning the day she went missing, At Dazs place all arvo and at Kilcoy all weekend after.”


    Brad is referring to a drum retreat attendee nicknamed ‘Daz’, who at the time lived in Kalangur, just half an hour away from Caboolture where Sandrine went missing, at 5:30pm, that same day.


    So what time did Brad leave Daz’s house? Below is a direct quote from Daz himself:


    “i do know this… on the 13th of july 2012, the accused [Bradley Ainsworth] was at my house from between about midday until about 4:30-5pm…”


    So, as Bradley Ainsworth himself says, he left Daz’s house in the afternoon, and Daz confirms that Brad left at between 4:30-5pm on the day Sandrine went missing. Brad has stated however that after Daz’s house he was at Kilcoy.. but there seems to be a rather large time gap (of more than 6 hours) in Brad’s alibi, because Brad didn’t turn up to Kilcoy for the retreat until five minutes to midnight. The Kilcoy retreat is one hours drive away from where Sandrine went missing.


    In short, Bradley Ainsworth was half an hour’s drive away from Sandrine on the day she went missing, had time to drive to meet Sandrine and had no alibi at the time Sandrine went missing at 5:30 pm, the 13th of July, 2012."
