Circumstances: The Australian Federal Police report the circumstances of Melissa's disappearance to be "Melissa Brown was last seen in Adelaide on 13th May 2000 and was known to frequent truck stops and also hitch-hike. Melissa has not been seen or heard from since." Whilst technically true it is a profoundly inaccurate assessment of the circumstances of Melissa's disappearance.
Melissa along with her mother Rosemary Brown went missing on 13 May 2000.
On July 2, 2000 the body of Rosemary Brown was found in the Garden Island mangroves in Adelaide. It is believed Mrs Brown was strangled to death, but this has not been confirmed by police.
There remains no reason to assume that Melissa is dead.
In late 2000 Major Crime Investigation Unit, Acting Superintendent Bill Prior said: "We obviously have grave concerns about the whereabouts of Mrs Brown`s daughter, Melissa."

"....there is no evidence at this stage to suggest Melissa has been murdered," he said.


  1. god bless <3 love to your family..:)
    solving mysteries, any info, please feel free to update and i will look into this case and help to solve the mystery, solved 34 in 5 years~~ please<3

  2. I never knew them to frequent any truck stops. I'm not sure why this was put out there.

  3. I wouldnt be surprised if her body isnt somewhere near where her mothers body was found

  4. I had a cop come to my door asking if I was Melissa Brown. I look nothing like her and have none of the freckles on my face of which this girl has. Some idiot rang crime stoppers anonymously saying I was her.

  5. she hanged around truckstops...and her mother wasnt exactly a good...influence is there a possibility they associated with the wrong people
