    Very unusual for a mother of small children to get out of a car with no regard for her children.

    CCTV footage shows her at the SA Museum (in the CBD) on the 8th August at approx 3:30pm. The husband says she left their vehicle of her own accord when they were near Roseworthy, which is about 50kms from the CBD. They were on their way home to their station which is near Yunta, which is approx 300kms from Adelaide.

    Not her husband. "A family member" called the police a couple of days later.

    I actually know her husband's first cousin, I don't know her well enough to grill her about him though.

    It would be a very lonely life for a 23 year old girl, stuck miles away from anything with two small children, particularly for a girl who didn't grow up in that situation. Very different to Germany!

    I guess we're all thinking much the same as to the likely scenario, but maybe another possibility is that she did leave the car as the husband said and decided to hitchhike to Sydney. Superintendent Bray mentioned Sydney in his press conference. Maybe she met with foul play hitch-hiking? Not as likely I know ...

    You would think that she would take her passport. I lived overseas for ten years and I would never leave anywhere without my passport. You would be trapped in the country and have no way to identify yourself.

    A MAN believed to be the husband of a missing young woman has killed himself at the family’s Outback property this afternoon — just hours after police revealed they were convinced she had been murdered.

    Tanja Ebert’s husband, Michael Burdon, had told police the 23-year-old mother of two refused to go home to their farm in SA’s northeast pastoral region following a trip to Adelaide and left the family car carrying a large sum of money.
    At 2.30pm on Wednesday, police held a media conference to say they were treating her disappearance as a murder inquiry.
    At 5pm on Wednesday, police said a 41-year-old man had died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the family’s property at Oulnina Station — outside Mannahill in SA’s northeast pastoral district — this afternoon.
    Police were present at the property at the time but no one else was injured and authorities have not officially confirmed the identity of the man who killed himself.
    An independent commissioner’s inquiry has already been launched into the incident and a report will be prepared for the coroner.

    So he's 41, she's 23, they've been together 5 years. Wow. That's interesting.

    At 5pm on Wednesday, police said a 41-year-old man had died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the family’s property at Oulnina Station — outside Mannahill in SA’s northeast pastoral district — some time after the media conference.
    Police officers were present at the property at the time but no one else was injured.
    Police confirmed to The Advertiser that the couple’s two children — aged 1 and 3 — are safe and in the care of family members.

    The children were at the property at the time but not hurt and then they were driven away afterwards by "family members" in a white station wagon.

    The only information I can find on "him" is that he has 1,500 points in an australia wide archery competition (927th) in the "recurve" division..i have no idea what recurve is.

    It looks like it is a 3 hour drive from Roseworthy to Yunta. It is a wide area to search and hopefully they find Tanja. Very sad.
