    Circumstances of Disappearance

    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 Djukich cold case investigators charge man with manslaughter almost three decades on
    March 2019

    Police in Western Australia have charged a man over the death of a Perth teenager who was reported missing almost 27 years ago, alleging he killed her by injecting her with a substance before burying her in a bush grave.

    Radina Djukich, then 14, was last seen in May 1992 leaving her home in the Perth suburb of North Beach.

    Almost three decades later, WA Police have revealed 69-year-old Ronald Joseph Buckland has been charged by cold case detectives with her manslaughter.

    Mr Buckland is understood to have been living with Ms Djukich at the time of her disappearance.

    The teenager's body has never been found.

    WA Police Deputy Commissioner Gary Budge said the charge came after police received fresh information more than a year ago.

    He said that resulted in officers reviewing old details from the missing persons investigation.

    "It will be alleged that he provided an injection to Radina and she subsequently died. He later [allegedly] buried her body in a bush location," he said.

    "We are very pleased to have brought this to a charge but there is still a long way to go.

    "We will never give up on these cases."

    Deputy Commissioner Budge said investigations into Ms Djukich's death were ongoing.

    "Over a period of time friendships and acquaintances change. There may be someone out there who has some information about Radina's manslaughter or circumstances around that and we'd like to encourage those people to come forward now," he said.

    "There have been a number of attempts over the past 27 years to recover Radina's remains, all unsuccessful. There are no plans to do that again right at this time."
