Australia - Michelle Mills, 39, Mudgee NSW, 12 August 2000
Detectives from the Unsolved Homicide Team have issued a fresh appeal for information concerning the disappearance and suspected murder of Mudgee woman, Michelle Mills.
Ms Mills, who was born on 23 July 1961, was reported missing from Mudgee on 12 August 2000. She has not been seen since.
The Unsolved Homicide Team has been investigating Ms Mills’ disappearance under Strike Force Toledo but as yet detectives have been unable to determine what happened to her.
Ms Mills moved to Mudgee from the Sydney suburb of Manly in 1997 and during the course of her three year residence in the area was known to frequent Rylstone and Kandos, as well as spending a lot of time in Mudgee.
A short woman, standing only 140cm tall, Ms Mills was of Caucasian appearance, and had green eyes, fair skin and light hair.
Friends reported that Ms Mills was going through a difficult time shortly before her disappearance, following the breakdown of a number of relationships, yet most people spoken to by police believe it highly unlikely that she would have taken her own life.
Detective Sergeant Jason Darcy from the Unsolved Homicide Team said detectives strongly believe that Ms Mills met with foul play and that whoever is responsible for her disappearance accessed her bank accounts for a number of months after she went missing.
“Ms Mills was last seen in August 2000 and yet her back account continued to be accessed until March 2001,” Detective Sergeant Darcy said.
“Her bank account was accessed from three different locations – Mudgee, Cowra and Blayney – in the months following her disappearance.
“We strongly suspect that whoever was accessing the account was directly involved in Ms Mills’ disappearance.”
Detective Sergeant Darcy added that police want to remind members of the public that a $100,000 reward is attached to the case, and that any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, could provide investigators with the breakthrough they need.
“We have no doubt there are people in the community who know exactly what has happened to Ms Mills,” Detective Sergeant Darcy said.
“She’s been missing for well over a decade and yet her poor family and friends still have no idea where she is or what has happened to her.
“Now is the time for anyone with information to come forward. If you know something, I strongly advise you to come to us before we come to you.”
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to Michelle Mills’ disappearance to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/ Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
