Carolyn Wilson, missing since April 2001. ALMOST a decade has passed since friends and family have heard from Mordialloc Secondary College teacher Carolyn Wilson.
The 66-year-old English and French teacher was last seen leaving her Camp Hill Rd, Somers, home on April 17, 2001, driving a green 1997 Daewoo Cielo sedan.
The mother-of-two called home three days later and spoke to her husband but did not say where she was or when she would return. Her credit card has not been used, her vehicle has never been found and she has not made any further contact with family or friends.
To coincide with Missing Persons Week, police last week renewed calls for information to help find Ms Wilson, described as a quiet woman with a small circle of friends.
Victoria Police Superintendent Murray Fraser said the first 24 to 48 hours in any missing person investigation were critical.
Of 7242 Victorians who went missing in the 2009/10 financial year, 6065 - almost 84 per cent - were found in the first 24 hours.
“In Victoria, you do not have to wait 24 hours before reporting a person as missing,” Supt Fraser said. “We really urge people to report their friends, family or loved ones missing as quickly as possible.
“In cases where people don’t wish to contact their family or friends, we ask them to report to a local police station - it’s one way to let family and friends know they’re OK without having to make direct contact or reveal where they are living.”
