Still no sign of Monique but family vows to keep searching

IT HAS been one year and a day since the last time missing Hervey Bay woman Monique Clubb contacted her family.

After travelling to Brisbane with friends, Monique called her mother, Sheena McBride, and told her she would be home the next day - she just needed to get some transport money.

Monique, who was 24 at the time she went missing, was last seen near Beenleigh train station on June 22 last year. No one has seen or heard from her since.

Her Facebook page paints a picture of how hard the past 366 days have been for her family and friends. The page gives her loved ones the chance to share messages with her, to spread the word about her disappearance.

Her brother Jack posts to her page often, promising her will never give up the search, never lose hope of finding her.

Monique's other brother, Mickey, and his partner Nikki Duncan were left equally shattered by her disappearance.

Nikki said there was little fresh information to report -nothing new from police that might lead to Monique's discovery.

She says the family have heard the worst rumours, which strikes fear into their hearts that they may have to prepare for the worst.

"It's still hard to believe she's a missing person," Nikki said.

Yesterday the family released red balloons to commemorate the date Monique was last seen -the last time their mother heard her daughter's voice.

Sheena McBride spoke to the Chronicle last year, when her daughter had been missing for 10 days.

She spoke about how out of character it was for her daughter not to contact her family.

Sheena tried to call Monique regularly in those first few days, with not even a voicemail message carrying the sound of her daughter's voice to give her comfort.

Instead, just a recorded voice telling her the person she was calling was not available.

She described her daughter's phone as her "lifeline", saying she used it to call friends or inbox them on Facebook regularly, making the silence of the past 12 months even more heart-wrenching.

Most of all, she told the Chronicle that the only important thing was finding Monique.

That she was dearly loved.

Nikki can't believe it has been a year.

She said the anniversary had come around quickly and the family had been sharing Monique's page on Facebook, trying to get any piece of information they could to try to end the mystery that has broken their hearts and torn their family apart.

And they will never stop searching.
