    Girl, 16, missing for two days after she boarded a train while 'groggy and disoriented'

    27 September 2016

    Cassie Olczak, 16, has been missing since Sunday evening, when she was last seen boarding a train, groggy and disoriented.

    The Sydney girl's distressed mother Connie is desperate to find her daughter, whose last confirmed sighting was at the Banksia train station about 7pm Sunday night.

    Ms Olczak choked up as she told Daily Mail Australia her daughter's disappearance was out of character and that she'd never done anything like it before, adding that she wasn't 'street smart'.

    'It's [been] too long now... I'm trying to keep calm... Her phone is off, she hasn't accessed her accounts.'

    Police said in a statement they had conducted 'extensive' inquiries to find Cassie, but had not been successful yet.

    Concerns were held for her due to her age.

    Cassie, who has just finished school and is due to begin a Tafe hairdressing course next week, had returned to Australia on Saturday from visiting her father in Abu Dhabi.

    On Sunday, she went to visit friends, who sent her home when they noticed she was disoriented, Ms Olczak said.

    About 6pm, she went to the train station with a friend, who took a train in an opposite direction to Cassie.

    Ms Olczak said CCTV footage showed her boarding a train just before 7pm, but no cameras showed her getting off.

    She was supposed to be travelling to Hurstville but it is not known if she arrived.

    After a social media campaign to find her daughter, a member of the public said they'd seen a girl who fitted Cassie's description aboard a 5.52am train in Emu Plains on Monday, sleeping under a pink blanket.

    Another alleged sighting placed her at Liverpool on a city-bound train at 9am, Ms Olczak said.

    Her mother begged anyone with information to contact Miranda or Hurstville police.

    Cassie is about 175cm tall and of a thin build, has long, dark hair and a tan complexion, was last seen wearing grey Adidas tights, a black zip-up Miley Cyrus hoodie, Adidas Superstar sneakers with gold stripes and a Nike hip bag.

    Police confirmed they had received a missing person report for a 16-year-old girl, but could not provide further information to Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday afternoon.

    Search for Sydney girl wraps up for day

    September 28, 2016 7:08pm

    The search for missing teenager Cassie Olczak in bushland on Sydney's southern outskirts has wrapped up for the day with police still hopeful of finding her.

    Helicopters, trail bikes, the dog squad and about 40 volunteers started scouring the Royal National Park on Wednesday.

    The search was triggered after CCTV vision was discovered of the 16-year-old at Waterfall Station about 7pm on Sunday, the day she went missing.

    Cassie went missing after visiting friends a day after returning to Australia from a trip to see her father in Abu Dhabi.

    Police believe she may have taken a substance before she went missing and been disoriented from jet-lag.

    Inspector Jeff Dean said the search would recommence in the morning.

    "We have searched numerous tracks in the national park," he told AAP.

    "There is no point going into darkness. The risks outweigh the benefits to that and we will probably recommence tomorrow morning."

    A concerned friend had said Cassie was incoherent and needed sleep and to go home to bed before she went missing, her mother said.

    Connie Olczak broke down in tears while making a desperate public plea for help to bring her daughter home.

    She says her daughter is not street smart and dislikes crowded places, and is a "stunner" who had a modelling contract.

    Cassie was due to start a new hairdressing job next week, Ms Olczak told reporters.

    Inspector Dean said police were looking for any signs that indicated Cassie had been in the bushland recently, and were speaking to nearby residents for information.

    "The last sighting of her was here on Sunday evening so we will do this until we find something new," he said.

    "We are always hopeful. We have got a lot of people committed to the search so far and will tomorrow and we all have high hopes of finding her."

    The missing teen has not used her bank account or Facebook page since Sunday.

    Missing teen Cassie Olczak alive and well

    September 30, 2016 7:14pm

    SYDNEY teenager Cassie Olczak has been found alive and well today, walking along a highway north of Wollongong after being missing for almost a week.

    Cassie, 16, was located at Waterfall railway station, in Sydney’s southern fringe, by rail employees this morning after a passing motorist had seen her walking along the Princes Hwy near the station just before 9am and called triple-0.

    Officers from Sutherland region stopped the girl and confirmed she was the missing teen, ending an extensive search in the nearby national park.

    Police said the teenager told them she spent her days away alone in bushland in the Royal National Park, near the station.

    “She has been in the bush ... from what she said. Not that far from the train station area but she has been in the bush for this period of time,” Assistant Superintendent Gary Ford said.

    “She’s obviously had some exposure to the elements but she’s pretty much really in good health considering.

    “We will talk to her in the next 24 hours or so, once she’s recovered.”

    Cassie’s mother Connie said she was “grateful” her daughter had been found and thanked the search teams for their efforts during the past week.

    “I just want the medical team to look after her ... She’s been out for a long time,” she said.

    “It’s just a miracle and I don’t even know what to say. I’m just grateful that they’ve found her.” She said it was “very bizarre” and out of character for her daughter to disappear as she had.
