    ACT Policing appeals for help to find missing woman Amelia Hausia

    Police have renewed appeals for public assistance to help locate a woman raised and beloved at Dubbo who went missing more than two decades ago.

    Amelia Toa Hausia was aged 17 when she disappeared in Canberra in 1992. Hers remains one of eight missing person cases ACT Policing is actively investigating.

    During Missing Persons Week police are encouraging community support to help them reunite Amelia with her loved ones.

    “Police will always maintain hope that this case and other missing person cases could come to a resolution if someone were to come forward with more information,” an ACT Policing spokesperson said.

    “The lack of resolution or closure is one of the hardest aspects of a long-term missing person’s case and it’s something we know Amelia’s family has lived with since the day of her disappearance.

    “We’re urging anyone who believes they have information regarding the disappearance of Amelia or any missing person to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    “Information can be provided anonymously.” Amelia was last seen by her family at her home on December 17, 1992, the National Missing Persons Coordination Centre website reports.

    “She was upset after a fight with her boyfriend,” the website says.

    “The last sighting was at the Woden Plaza Shopping Centre on 22 December 1992.” “Numerous reported sightings of Amelia have been made to police over the years since her disappearance, however no positive identification has been made.”

    Police have also distributed an age progression photo of what they believe Amelia looks like today. This year’s campaign message is ‘Missing persons leave frayed edges, Stay connected’.

    It seeks to remind people of the importance of staying connected with family and friends and enhancing the support networks for those most at risk of going missing.

    Still waiting for a call

    In July 1993, out of the blue, Amelia phoned Tafolo, according to police. She told her birth mother she was safe and well, and would be in Tonga for Christmas. She didn't say where she was, or had been. And that was the last anyone in her Tongan or Australian-based family saw or heard of her.

    Periodically, family members were convinced they had spotted her. For years, remembers Paul, "every islander girl that passed by your peripheral vision sent a shiver down your spine". In 1998, John caught sight of a woman he was certain was Amelia from an airport bus transporting him and Mary Ann to their hotel in Townsville, north Queensland,

    "I jumped out of my seat and shouted, 'Stop the bus, driver, that's my daughter!'" he recalls. "The driver hit the brakes and I ran to the front of the bus. I was about to get off when I saw it wasn't Amelia, but an Aboriginal lady with wild, thick hair, like hers."

    Some of Amelia's relatives consulted psychics, who suggested a range of locations where she might be, including Melbourne, a place possibly outside Dubbo, and "somewhere near the Murray River but moving to Queensland".

    In 2004, Kim and a friend flew to Melbourne and posted flyers around the city. In 2010, Amelia was one of six missing persons featured on airport billboards in capital cities, complete with "age-progressed photos" created by Australian Federal Police.

    ACT Police participated in an episode of the Channel Nine program 'Missing Persons Unit' which publicised her disappearance.

    Territory officers have been reviewing her case for the past two years. "But we've come to the same conclusion [as previous investigations]," says Superintendent Francis Jamieson, head of the ACT's Missing Persons Unit. "We don't know where Amelia is."

    Police 'Going Old School' In Bid To Find Missing Australians

    From Thursday, thousands of bottles of milk sent out to stores across the state will be plastered with the faces of 12 missing Australians, some of whom disappeared decades ago.

    Authorities are hoping the joint initiative, between the Australian Federal Police and Canberra Milk will start a new conversation about the region's missing people, and ultimately help police find them, AFP Assistant Commissioner Debbie Platz said.

    Platz lauded the campaign, made popular in the U.S. in the 1980s, as a "tried-and-tested method" of using the community to help police in their investigations, ensuring thousands of Canberrans will get the message.

    “It takes back to the days, before Amber Alerts and social media notifications, to when reports of missing people appeared in a place guaranteed to catch the eyes of the broader population – on milk cartons," Platz said on Thursday.

    Amelia Hausia disappeared from the Woden Plaza Shopping Centre just before Christmas in 1992 after a fight with her boyfriend. Numerous sightings have been reported since her disappearance but no positive identification has ever been made.
