    Australia - Shannon Leah Fraser, 30, Golden Hole/Bartle Frere, Nth Qld, 21 Sept 2014

    Missing woman – ‘Golden Hole’ near Josephine Falls

    September 23, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    Police continue their search for a 30-year-old Innisfail woman, Shannon Leah Fraser, reported missing from ‘Golden Hole’, Biggs Road at Bartle Frere near Josephine Falls around 3pm on Sunday afternoon

    Inspector Rhys Newton today continued the police appeal for assistance from the public for information that might help locate Ms Fraser.

    He said, “Anyone that was in the Golden Hole area on Sunday needs to contact their local police or Innisfail police on 4061 5777.

    “We need to speak to anyone who was in that vicinity.

    “That also goes for anyone who may have information which may assist us with her location.”

    Approximately 25 personnel from both police and the State Emergency Service have been involved in today’s search which have been focusing on land surrounding the area with members on foot and quad bikes.

    Shannon attended the popular swimming spot known to locals as ‘Golden Hole’ with her partner and another man on Sunday morning.

    The alarm was raised after Shannon failed to return to the vehicle after becoming separated from the two men.

    “In 5-10 minutes you can be in very difficult terrain in that area. You’d be in quite thick, dense, jungle and may become disorientated,” Inspector Newton said.

    Shannon is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 175cm tall, with a heavy build and dark brown hair.

    She was last seen sitting under a gazebo wearing a black t-shirt, grey leggings, black thongs with a silver strip on them and was carrying a red towel.

    Police are urging anyone who was in the area around ‘Golden Hole’ on Sunday, who has not yet spoken to police, to make contact with local police or Crime Stoppers.

    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.

    The family of missing Innsfail woman Shannon Fraser have made a public plea to help them find the mother-of-three.

    Shannon was first reported missing on Sunday when she supposedly disappeared from Golden Hole near Josephine Falls.

    An extensive search of the water hole has failed to find her and police are now following up other leads.

    Today her parents appealed through the media for any information which may help them find their daughter.

    The30-year-old is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 175cm tall, with a heavy build and dark brown hair.

    From Cairns Post http://www.cairnspost.com.au/lifesty...-1227072016204

    " CRUCIAL new evidence has been revealed in the disappearance of Shannon Leah Fraser, as her family say no one had heard from her since last Friday, two days before she was reported missing.

    The news also comes as police reveal they are searching for a white 2000 Ford Falcon station wagon with NSW plates and missing the front, driver’s side hub cap, in relation to the case.

    It is understood police have extensively interviewed Ms Fraser’s partner in the past week but no new leads were found."

    Police investigate crocodile attack possibility in mystery of missing mother Shannon Leah Fraser

    October 04, 2014 12:00AM


    POLICE are investigating the possibility of a crocodile attack in the mystery disappearance of mother-of-three Shannon Leah Fraser at a far north swimming hole.

    The 30-year-old vanished without a trace on a picnic at the popular Golden Hole site near Josephine Falls on September 21.

    The Innisfail woman was reported missing by her partner Heath Cassady as detectives this week confirmed her disappearance had been listed as “suspicious”.

    Ms Fraser’s heartbroken mother Deidre Sharrock said she feared the worst and believed her daughter was dead

    “I just want to find her,” Ms Sharrock said.

    “If the worst has happened, I just want her back, to give her a decent burial.”

    Officers want to speak to anyone who saw or owns a brown pop-top Combi van or green campervan seen near the swimming hole on the weekend of September 20-21

    Her elated mother Deidre Sharrock, in a hospital bedside vigil, said her daughter was found by a farmer this morning.

    “She’s badly burnt, she’s lost a lot of weight,’’ Ms Sharrock told The Courier-Mail.

    She’s got a lot of infected cuts from fighting the scrub. She told us she just sat in a creek for three days to soothe her cuts and burns.

    “A farmer found her this morning when she stumbled out of the bush

    Ms Fraser told family how she came face-to-face with a giant cassowary, got chased by a 2m freshwater crocodile, and survived on fresh water alone because she had been warned against eating wild berries

    A Queensland Health spokesperson said: “Her condition and symptoms are consistent with an extended period in the bush.”

    Doctors yesterday treated her for third-degree burns, welts from swarms of stinging black March flies, and swabbed dirt and stones out of her grazes and bare feet.

    “She’d found the coloured markers left in the rainforest by the search teams and followed them back to the picnic area,” Mr Fraser said.
