    Australia - Jill Meagher, 29, Melbourne, 22 Sep 2012 #1

    Off Topic. I hope this beautiful young woman is found alive and well. I hope this isn't a case of 'here we go again'.

    AN Irish woman who works for ABC radio in Melbourne has vanished while walking home from a Brunswick bar.
    Jill Meagher, 29, was seen leaving The Brunswick Green bar on Sydney Rd at about midnight, before walking to Bar Etiquette where she was last seen between 1.30am and 2am on Saturday.

    Snipped:

    A WOMAN who mysteriously disappeared after a night out with work friends insisted she wanted to walk home alone, a friend has revealed.
    Police have launched a major investigation into the disappearance of Jill Meagher.
    Her distraught husband, Thomas, now fears the worst.
    The 29- year-old has not been seen since she left Brunswick's Bar Etiquette about 1.30am on Saturday.
    Det Acting Sgt Steve Bull said police were treating the disappearance of Ms Meagher, who works for ABC radio, very seriously.
    "We have concerns for her safety. This is totally out of character for Jill and we just haven't been able to find her," he said.
    ABC radio colleague Tom Wright told the Herald Sun he was the last person to see Ms Meagher. Mr Wright offered to walk her home,but she declined.

    concerned

    This is not good.

    Women just don't disappear here in Melbourne. Hoping for some sort of miracle, but just can't think of any scenario where that will occur.

    Really hope she is found safe.

    No your right they just don't disappear, it's so scary and so close to home. All we can is pray and hope the police find something in the surveillance footage they are looking through or her phone pings fingers crossed.

    It's a very urban area with a dense population:

    A lot for LE to sort out. Hoping for the best.

    Bless her heart! I hate to say it but the FB page appears to contain lots of photos of Jill drinking. Maybe that is the norm, not sure. But I wonder if she was intoxicated that night? Is there water nearby?

    She does seem like a lady that like a drink (she is Irish, move to Australia 3 years ago I think the papers said)and I have no doubt she had been drinking that night.

    no water nearby, not from memory anyway, brunswick is an inner city suburb and yes it's a very densly populated area - Melbourne has population of 3.5 million and that part of the city is all urban area, no parks or waterways. Sydney Rd area has a lot of traffic, even at 1,30am - it's a main road, but if she's walking home, brunswick side streets might be quiet - haven't been there awhile so I can't remember fully what it's like.

    Hi Makara

    I just logged on with this case in mind. I'm assuming that it rang bells for you too. The video of the hubby is very very interesting. Some text book eye movements to his right. Also, he is well set up with evidence of his concern for his wife's welfare - lots of calls to a mobile and already a web page to help find her - but no mention of searching on foot. Let's hope she's fine and well, and my interpretations are incorrect.

    Congratulations on your great contributions!

    It was reported in the above article that she lived 5a 5 minute walk away and walked home. And yes she had been drinking. She has lived in Australia for 3 years and is from Ireland.

    Have you ever had one of those TV cameras in your face? Very hard to look at. Having now experienced one I feel a bit more compassion for people who are faced with one.
