    Australia - Rhianna Barreau, 12, Adelaide, 7 Oct 1992

    Finding Rhianna: South Australian police appeal for help solving 23-year child cold case

    Police suspect the 12-year-old was murdered and believe someone holds information that could solve her baffling disappearance.
    Rhianna was last seen walking away from her Morphett Vale home on the morning of October 7, 1992, during the school holidays.
    She went to buy a Christmas card for her pen pal from a shopping centre at Reynella in Adelaide's south, but little else is known about her movements.

    A $1 million reward is on offer for anyone who can provide information leading to a conviction in Rhianna's case.

    In light of the recent abduction, rape and possible attempted murder of two women by a Morphett Vale man, I have to wonder if they are taking a look at him in relation to Rhianna. He's 59, so certainly old enough. They are apparently looking at him now in relation to the cold case murder of Italian tourist Victoria Cafasso, found on a Tasmanian beach.

    This is just me but did they have to release a photo where she's obviously wearing lipstick/make-up? She deserves better than that i think.

    How did Rhianna Barreau simply vanish without trace 25 years ago?

    ‘AT BEST there are only two or three possible scenarios in which Rhianna Barreau vanished.

    In the first, Rhianna answered the front door to someone she knew and went with them willingly. The second sees her answer the door, only to be taken against her will — *silently and swiftly — from the house.

    The third involves her simply leaving the house voluntarily for some reason, walking away from it — unseen by any witnesses — and being snatched at another location.

    The second and third scenarios appear unlikely. Rhianna’s house in Wakefield Ave, Morphett Vale, was locked, there was no sign of a struggle and no one reported hearing any disturbance on the afternoon she vanished.’

    ‘And Rhianna’s mother firmly believes she would not have left the house without asking her, a view shared by police. Reinforcing this belief is the total absence of any sighting after Rhianna returned home from a trip to the local shops.

    That leaves the inescapable, unpalatable likelihood that Rhianna most likely knew the person who abducted and subsequently murdered her.
