Well done LAM! Great informative spread sheet. I had not heard of Veronica Lockyer. After reading up on her from Google, it made me really sad to think that in 20 years none of her family missed her and thus did not report her missing, all thinking some one else was in contact with her. Maybe I'm taking this the wrong way as I don't know the family situation, but it makes me wonder if she (Veronica) felt unimportant? Many families, unfortunately, are very disjointed for various reasons and this is how both adults and children fall between the cracks. Maybe I am overreacting as I haven't seen my daughter (who has issues and is not talking to me again) and granddaughter for just over a week and I'm worried sick and about to storm their house to make sure they are ok.

Thank you all for the information. I've located a few more missing women and added them too.

I've been compiling the male's missing/murdered spreadsheet and there's such a lot. I'm surprized that more men have gone missing rather than actually found/located murdered.

A lot of those men have gone missing from the country regions, whilst along long-stretches of highway. Perhaps they were apprehended whilst pulled over to use the bush-toilet and forced to drive their own vehicle's elsewhere. I think in some instances two people might have been involved. Australia has such a large area of open-space, once a body is disposed a couple of metres off the roadside, the person probably wouldn't be located for years, because no one actually walks past.

Also, 3 missing persons have had their car left abandoned at the Perth airport. That would seem two people are involved in dropping off the vehicle because the perpetrator needs a lift home. There's no public transport at the airport and it's risky catching a taxi home.

The mind boggles but I'll keep working on the information and upload it as soon as it's completed.

My friend once told me, if your daughter ever avoids you, make sure you ignore her - don't phone or visit etc. When she visits you, don't ask how she is and make out you're not really interested. People hate being ignored.

My friend said, You don't have to be nasty, just step back for a while. It seems to work.

good work LAM, and thanks for the tag. will be interested to see the male version of the spread sheet, no doubt its a bit more populated. Im inclined to believe there would be a number of suicides in the regional missing males. unfortunately as you say we have a large amount of country side, so bodies can be undiscovered for long periods of time.

Some of the missing males might be due to hitchhiking along deserted roads throughout long distances. It's possible some men are likely to dismiss the idea of becoming a victim. A lot of victims have driven somewhere remote and gone missing, which doesn't explain what happened to their vehicle. Not even a burnt out vehicle has turned up. Makes me wonder if the victim and their vehicle is taken back to someone's shed.

Once people go missing the police perform a considerable search such as aerial surveillance etc. They discovered Raymond Kehlet down a mineshaft which was one of hundreds. Imagine the resources needed for someone to clamber down to have a look.

for sure there is a lot of effort put into searches, with a lot more resources required in covering vast distances. my thinking is more along the lines of male suicide rates are higher in the country, males in the country usually have higher rates of depression, and there are larger amounts of space where a suicide victim can go undiscovered. im not suggesting all the missing people are suicides, but there is possibly some amongst them. its also quite possible that the potential victim mentality is lower in the country, with most people knowing one another, and thus being more trusting. bodies could be anywhere, with vehicles and belongings easily hidden.
