Sharon Fulton

AGE: 39 years HEIGHT: 165cm BUILD: Medium EYES: Green HAIR: Brown shoulder length wavy hair COMPLEXION: Fair To this day a mystery still surrounds the disappearance of mother of four – Sharon Elizabeth FULTON. FULTON was born Sharon Elizabeth HULME on the 31st of May 1946 in Dubbo, New South Wales, the only child of Robert and Betty HULME. When Sharon was 21 years of age she married Maxwell Robert FULTON on the 8th of July at St Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Brisbane. Together, Robert (which he preferred to be called) and Sharon had four children. Robert was employed by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and was often posted to RAAF bases both with in Australia and overseas. In February 1983 Robert was transferred to Western Australia where the family took up residence on Readshaw Road in Duncraig while Robert worked at Pearce Air Base in Bullsbrook. It was from this address that Sharon FULTON, aged 39, was reported missing to police on the 21st of March 1986, by her husband who last saw his wife four days earlier on March 18th 1986. Robert reported that he had arrived home from work around Midday on March the 18th to find his wife missing after having had a conversation with her the previous day where she informed him that she needed time to herself. He later told police that he had taken his wife to the East Perth Train Station on this date. Sharon has not been seen or heard of since. At the time of Sharon’s disappearance her children aged 15 yrs, 10 yrs, 7 yrs and 3 yrs, were left to fend for themselves without a mother, never knowing what happened to her. She was described as an enthusiastic person by all that knew her, centring her life on motherhood, and occasionally enjoying times with her friends while following her hobby of ten pin bowling. Now about 26 years on the circumstances surrounding her disappearance still remain a mystery and the tragedy continues to haunt her children and friends who are still searching for answers. Detectives are eager to speak with anyone who knew Sharon Fulton prior to the time that she vanished.
