Circumstances of disappearance

Elizabeth was last seen at the Australian National University Union Bar in Canberra after spending time with friends. Between 9:00 pm (21:00) and 9:45 pm (21:45) on June 13, 1980 a person fitting her description was seen hitch-hiking on the south bound carriageway leading to Commonwealth Avenue in Canberra. It is believed that this same person was then given a lift in a motor vehicle along Commonwealth Avenue to the intersection of coronation drive in Canberra. Elizabeth has not returned.

There is a possibility that Elizabeth was one of Ivan Milat's victims. He was a road worker on the Hume Highway (main highway between Sydney and Yass and on to Melbourne) at the time of Elizabeth's disappearance. Many of his victims disappeared from the Hume Highway and were murdered in a forest also on this highway.
