Mary Louise Wallace

Mary was 33 years old when she disappeared in late September 1983. She has dark hair and grey eyes.
She had been due to attend her sister's birthday party but did not arrive. Mary was a nursing sister at Hunters Hill private nursing hospital in Sydney. She lived in Drummoyne and was due at her parents' home in Lane Cove for the party.
The previous evening Mary had been out with friends at the Alpine Inn wine bar in Crow's Nest. She was wearing a dark woollen top and a light green denim skirt. The group had previously been at the Stoned Crow bar and before that at the Malaya Restaurant until 1am. During their time at the Alpine Inn a man was paying particular attention to Mary - approximately 30 years old, tall, neatly dressed, blonde, neat moustache, clean cut appearance. Mary was seen at 3am talking to this man. She had been feeling unwell and was sick in the toilets of the wine bar. Mary's friends attempted to look after her but the well dressed man told her friend he was a Police officer and offered to escort Mary home. The man helped Mary into his brown 1982 Holden Commodore, fitted with fibreglass bullbars parked on Willoughby Road outside the Alpine Inn. The man drove off with Mary, headed West and this was the last time Mary was ever seen.
Police did find the blonde man who said he drove Mary a few streets away, they had sex and he then fell asleep in his car, awaking at 5am to find Mary gone. He denied murdering Mary. He admitted he had lied about being a Police officer. This man was seen earlier scrubbing his car meticulously clean after Mary disappeared.

Sharon Mason

Personal Details
Status: Murdered
Convicted: Arthur Greer
Last Seen:February 19, 1983
Employment: Student
Age: 14
Year of birth: 1970
Hair: Fair
Complexion: Fair
Gender: Female
Distinguishing Feature:
Circumstances: The disappearance of Sharon Mason spread fear through Perth after she vanished in 1983, when her body was found and Arthur Greer arrested that fear began to subside. It was all but relieved by the conviction of her 'murderer' in 1994.

I have no doubt that Greer has been less than a great guy to be around over the years and even dangerous at times. However, from the evidence now available I believe it is highly unlikely that if Arthur Greer was charged today that the case would not even make it to trial.

This leads to two problems that must be addressed urgently. Arthur Greer must be released from prison and the murder case of Sharon Mason must be re-opened.

The small stretch of highway through the exclusive suburbs of Mosman Park, Claremont and Cottesloe has been the witness to a very significant number of unsolved disappearances, predatory attacks and murders and though its convenient to consider that the attacks are not linked, statistically that is becoming a very long bow to draw.
