Radina Marie Djukich

Age at Time of Disappearance: 14 years old Last Seen: May 16, 1992 Location Perth, Western Australia. Classification: Missing Date Of Birth: July 29 1977 Height: 5'3" - 160 cm. Distinguishing Characteristics: She has a noticeable turned left eye. White female. Blue eyes, Auburn hair. Last Seen Wearing: Blue jeans ("JAG" brand), red jumper and sports shoes. Circumstances: Radina Djukich was reported missing by Ronald Joseph Buckland on May 16, 1992, six weeks after she was released into his care after an appearance in the Children's Court. At the time, Buckland was on parole after serving part of a six-year sentence for breaking and entering. He had an extensive criminal record, including convictions for assault and armed robbery. In 1982, he had been declared an habitual criminal. Buckland was not Radina's father in any legal sense, yet the Children's Court released her on a $1000 surety with the condition that she lived with Buckland and observed a 7pm to 7am curfew. When she disappeared Buckland said she had run away interstate. A year later, Buckland murdered his 18-year-old girlfriend, Vicki Robinson, after an argument, and buried her body in bush near Yanchep. He is serving a 20-year sentence for the crime. In 1996, Buckland told police Radina had been murdered but denied responsibility. He led officers on an unsuccessful search for her body around the Star Swamp in the Perth suburb of North Beach. Radina's mother, Christine Djukich, wants to know why her daughter was released into the care of a violent offender who claimed to be her father.

  1. this animal is due for release.. i hope his next victim isnt your daughter.. he knows where redina is,, how dare we let him out at all to reoffend ; / let alone before the day he tells her family where she really is so they can finally lay her to rest ; (

    1. with all the new ways they have got nowadays they should of found this beautiful girl he should never be released until he hands radian over it s been too long for her mum to bear so no release for a mongrel dog like him

  2. I so agree with your statement. He should rot in hell. The day Ronald dies we all can celebrate he wont physical, mental and etc... any other women. But I hope he does tell her family were Redina is.

  3. I'm closely related to this man. I just hope when he is released he Doesn't try to make contact with me or my family

  4. I had the greatest displeasure actually meeting and working with this vermin back in the early 70's. A very very physically powerful little man with a short fuse and a massive chip on his shoulder. I knew way back then that he was trouble and a person best avoided. Its the height of absolute stupidity for the children's court to release somebody into his care. That was an act of insanity beyond words as his history was well and truly there for all to see.
