    Here it says that they 'met on a Mediterranean cruise and Melissa chased him around the world".

    That makes more sense to me than his meeting her at a Bondi hair salon. I assume that when they met, AK was living in Riverwood. So perhaps when they got together and lived in Dover Heights, he then got a job in Bondi.

    I guess that is where his money went travelling around the world until MC took over and paid for him. However, another idea I have is that AK could have been working on a cruise ship as a hairdresser when they met.

    Yes and she may well have got everything organised and set up for a night time flit. I don't think she just happened to depart in her leggings and running kit. She'd stashed stuff away and planned it - quickly or well in advance. Clearly she will have sorted out a money supply too.

    I'm just wondering with Australia being so vast is it really possible that the police can block off all roads and means of crossing the borders? There must be quite a lot of tracks and back roads.

    There is, but someone would have to assist her to cross any border in the way outback. I might add that these borders have been closed for almost 12 months, they have most of the 'easy' ways in covered, even people living close to the borders can't cross or get in and get supplies delivered. It's being closely supervised IYKWIM.

    if she was planning in advance she may have rented a place incognito months before and have all her clothes and money, documents etc already there waiting

    There’s plenty of ways she hypothetically could’ve crossed a state border, despite the restrictions and checks in place since covid came about. It is difficult for everyone unless of course you’re someone who is fleeing and with money - in which case a closed border is nothing but a minor obstacle. I just think it’s pretty interesting that a police source has said this to the Daily Telegraph:

    They haven’t accidentally said this, I strongly doubt it’s purely speculative or a case of loose lips. Rather, I think they’re rattling a cage.

    I still find it interesting that these conflicting statements are said by police.
    (From the DT article posted by Panda on the previous page)


    After ASIC left (about 7pm) Melissa went to bed about midnight, according to her husband.

    No suggestion that either her son or husband Anthony Koletti have anything to do with her disappearance.

    Investigators are now treating Melissa's last confirmed sighting as when ASIC investigators walked out of her house ....

    Also (reiterating) because this is a missing persons case, the police do not have the powers to tap phones, or carry out search warrants - as they would due to a crime.

    About the tapping of phones etc.

    In Ristevski's case they had enough to get a warrant to get phones tapped, he was a suspect/POI and behaved suspiciously. Exactly what they had at that time I don't know.

    If they don't suspect AK, NSW Police have no reason to tap the phones, but the AFP do IMO.

    The Premier’s of each state take their border closures very seriously. There are drones etc set up to cover off the more remote areas, police from larger cities sent to regional areas. Noone ‘slips’ through IMO

    I know. It's so incredibly frustrating. Going by that article, you would presume AK and son had lied to police.

    Re crossing the NSW/Qld border, I would think it's perfectly possible if she had help - a driver and car to take her to the border, then she walks across a paddock or whatever, where another driver and car picks her up. And hopefully no drones around.

    professor of criminology dr terry goldsworthy was interviewed on tv a few days ago, he seemed very positive the scenario where melissa is alive and in hiding is the most likely and really emphasised the digital footprint aspect police are following, which he repeats in this article....
