    Jane Furlong - 1993
    ''Nearly two decades after 17-year-old Jane Furlong went missing from Auckland’s Karangahape Road in 1993, her remains were found at a remote Port Waikato beach. Jane had been buried in sand dunes some 90 kilometres from the last confirmed sighting of the young mother. The discovery sparked the third investigation into what has become one of this country’s most enduring cold cases.''
    ''Police believe the young sex worker knew her killer and that he has a link to the small seaside settlement at Sunset Beach, Port Waikato.''
    ''The last official sighting of Jane was at 8.30pm on 26 May 1993 outside Rendells where she usually worked.''

    ''There is now strong evidence of a later sighting of Jane the night she went missing, running scared and entering the “Adam and Eve” massage parlour, 500 metres from where Jane was working, towards the Ponsonby end of Karangahape Road. Do you have any information about this incident?''

    ''Furlong's remains were found buried deep beneath sand dunes at Port Waikato's Sunset Beach in 2012, 20 years after she was reported missing from Auckland's Karangahape Rd.

    She had been due to give evidence in two trials, against a serial sex offender and in a gang-related court case.''

    Crimes NZ - The Jane Furlong cold case
    ''Today we're looking back at one of New Zealand's most mysterious cold cases.

    Auckland teenager and sex worker Jane Furlong went missing from Karangahape Road in 1993. Her murderer has never been brought to justice.

    Jesse is joined by Stuff journalist Kelly Dennett, who's the author of The short life & mysterious death of Jane Furlong.

    Kelly's book won the prize for best non-fiction at the Ngaio Marsh Awards for New Zealand crime writing last year, and writer Steve Braunias has described her as "New Zealand's best true crime writer".

    Police investigate possible new Jane Furlong lead, but experts doubt cold-case memories
    May 23 2021 rbbm.
    ''The man says on the rural road out to the beach he was followed closely by a group of men in a blue car. It appeared to be a unique left-hand-drive car, and he says he could see a young woman sitting amidst them. Closely behind that car was a white car containing two men. The man let them pass, but he saw them again as he and his wife arrived at the car park at Sunset Beach.''

    ''This is when instinct kicked in. Something was wrong, he says. He quietly eyed the group, believing the six men were aged about 23 to 33. They were wearing jeans and some had long jackets. They looked like they could be bouncers at a club, he thought. None of them looked happy. But it was the young woman’s demeanour that struck the man. She was petite, aged maybe 18 to 28, with auburn-like hair that looked curly, voluminous, or maybe just messy. She looked confused, perhaps hungover.''

    ''For this would-be witness, he hopes his story may prompt memories or information from others. Perhaps someone knows someone who had that distinctive vehicle. Perhaps someone else was on the beach that day and also saw something. Or maybe, the woman he saw will recognise herself in that scene, and make contact with a not-so-sinister explanation. In the meantime, a photograph could solve both mysteries.''
