    Lorrin has five children. The family is desperate for answers.

    Please find my mum

    "The second youngest sister looks at me and says: 'Mum will come home won't she?', and all I can say is: 'How much does Mum love you and how much does she tell you she loves you every day'," Amelia said.

    "She doesn't have to come home, all she has to do is call and tell us she is OK."

    Ms Whitehead disappeared without a trace on Friday, February 8, without her car, purse, phone or diabetes medication.
    She was last seen near an ATM in Bannockburn.

    It is understood Ms Whitehead also suspended her mail delivery for a week before she disappeared.
    Good post here.

    POLICE may have suspended her mother's missing persons case, but Amelia Kaiser will never stop searching.

    The 20-year-old Bannockburn nurse's mother, Lorrin Jane Whitehead, was last seen at the Bannockburn Safeway on February 8. As the six-month anniversary approaches, Ms Kaiser said the search had become desperate.

    Ms Whitehead is a Type One diabetic, but has not used her Medicare card or any credit or debit cards to buy vital medications.

    I'm intrigued. Surely this is not a coincidence?

    Thanks for the link, SWMNBN!

    I agree. I'm very intrigued by the family's gut feeling. Lorrin has certainly missed a lot since she's been gone. Surely it's foul okay. Very sad!

    The link to the claremont murders is absolutely chilling. Here's some posts from a newsgroup at the time of the murders https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...me/Mz6NxHT2reg

    In one article it suggests there are additional missing people from the school, has anyone else researched that?

    I saw Lorrin's details on a promotional mat at the chemist this past weekend and she just stood out to me. I hadn't heard of her before. Not to be rude or dismissive because I care about everyone on those posters, but difficult lives show on people's faces and some people do go missing of their own accord, or have lifestyles that put them at risk, but Lorrin looks like so unlikely a victim.

    I watched Crime Investigation Australia on the Claremont murders this morning. It almost feels pointless to speculate as to an Iona College link it seems like the police investigation was very thorough. The CCTV of Jane Rimmer greeting "Mystery Man", if I had to make a guess, I'd say she looks like she both recognises him and is somewhat surprised in a good way to see him. It made me think about how a young friendly woman would react if she saw a previous teacher in a context where they are now peers. A previous school teacher would gain their trust easily and also know students from a spread of year levels.

    Have you guys seen this? I'm not sure how old it is, her daughter says they received a blank greeting card not long after her disappearance. Lorrin's version of a suicide note?

    It says in the article that Lorrin had been missing for three months at the time the story ran, so I think it's from May 2013. I had never heard the greeting card details though. I wonder if the family don't publicise that detail as it does make it seem like a suicide/intentional disappearance.
