Families still looking for missing loved ones
ON AVERAGE, 36,000 people are reported missing in Australia each year.
Of those people, 99.7% will be found.
But for that 0.3%, their families will never know exactly what happened or why their loved one disappeared.
It is Missing Persons Week and this year the focus is on mental illness, which police say is behind the disappearances of thousands of people in Australia each year.
Connie Jacomina Bradbury disappeared from Maryborough in January, 1997.
She was born in 1958. If she was alive today, she would be about 55 years old.
More recently, Point Vernon woman Monique Clubb disappeared after catching a train to Beenleigh in June.
She called a friend to let her know she was coming and that was the last time anyone heard from her.
Monique's family has been trying to contact her since she disappeared, leaving messages on her Facebook page and trying to contact her by phone.
