    I'm not too sure how to say what I'm thinking...the police behaviour/news releases seem contradictory in a way. It doesn't feel like there is any urgency to find her although they imply that she may be in danger. It's annoying.

    Where are the pictures of the girl? It's no use only describing what is she wearing at 10am this morning when there is a chance she could have been changed out of it.

    Where was the car found? I'm not from Queensland so I have no idea of the size of Toowoomba but I feel that people are more likely to be on the lookout if they have a more specific area.

    How much help can the public truly be when they are given such limited information?

    Thanks Nacho! That's great news she was found!

    From that same link...
