A MASSIVE social media campaign is in full swing in a bid to help police find an ABC employee last seen leaving a Brunswick bar early on Saturday.

Jill Meagher, 29, an Irish national who works as a unit co-ordinator at the ABC, was last seen leaving Bar Etiquette, in Sydney Road, about 1.30am after a night out with colleagues. Police believe she intended walking to her nearby home.

As police and her husband yesterday appealed for information on her disappearance, social media took hold. On Twitter, dozens of people posted or retweeted links to news stories, including ABC managing director Mark Scott, presenters Wil Anderson, John Safran, Leigh Sales, Francis Leach, Rafael Epstein, Libbi Gorr, Jenny Brockie and Tamara Oudyn, and the Twitter feeds for the broadcaster's respective programs.

Searching for Jill Meagher: family waits for answers, police cordon off crime scene

By ABC Melbourne
24 September, 2012 9:01AM AEST

~Snipped~

Detective acting Sergeant Steve Bull is the lead investigator in the search, and confirms the last sighting of Jill Meagher at the licensed venue Bar Etqiuette, on Sydney Road, Brunswick.

"From what we understand she left about 1.30 in the morning... she was offered a ride home but she chose to walk home."

"She lived locally and she quite regularly attended the bars there and walked there - done it a million times before."

~Snipped~

Jill's husband Thomas Meagher confirms he was in contact with Jill through the evening, and that it was not unusual for he and his wife to make the short walk from the bar strip of Sydney Road to their home.

"I spoke to her on the phone before I left work Friday at 5 o'clock. She was in good spirits, she was going out and she was happy. I also got a text message from her at a quarter to ten," says Thomas Meagher.

He says she has walked home that way 'plenty of times'.

"It's the way we normally walk home," says Thomas.

He says someone 'must have seen her at some stage' as she was walking.

Homicide squad takes over search for Jill Meagher

Mon, 24 Sep 2012 2:21p.m.
By 3 News online staff

The husband of a woman missing for more than 48 hours in Melbourne says he is going through hell, but is still hopeful she'll be found.

ABC employee Jill Meagher hasn't been seen since leaving a Brunswick bar to walk home early on Saturday.

~Snipped~

Ms Meagher’s husband Thomas is distraught, describing his wife of four years as his “best friend”.

"I rang her mobile pretty much non-stop from two to six in the morning. I also went out looking for her at about five in the morning," Mr Meagher said.

He told the Melbourne Age her phone rang unanswered until about 8am, when it diverted to voicemail.

"It's just devastating, but [I'm] just trying to push on as much as possible," he said.

Asked what was keeping him going, he replied: "Just hope. Just hope somebody saw something or she just walks through the door."

Mr Meagher told the newspaper his wife’s father had been sick recently, but he did not think this was a factor in her disappearance.

Australian murder police called in over missing Jill

By Paul Melia Ahmer Khokhar and Elaine Keogh
Monday September 24 2012

FEARS are growing over the whereabouts of a young Irishwoman missing in Australia.

The family of Jill Meagher said her disappearance was completely out of character, and that she was sober when last seen leaving a pub.

~Snipped~

Her only brother Michael McKeon (26) said the last contact Tom had with his wife was a text message asking him to come to the pub where she was on a night out with work colleagues.

"Tom woke up around 2am and saw a text message from her asking him to come to the pub," he said yesterday.

"He just started calling her and she wasn't answering her phone.

"He took a walk down (to the pub) to see if she was around.

"At midday he got really worried because her phone had turned off and started going straight to message. He called all her friends before calling the police.

"She usually lets everyone know what she's doing, she's never done anything like this before.

"She wasn't drunk because her co-workers said she was fine when she left. One of her friends offered to walk her home but she said she was just 10 minutes away."

Police must insist on 24/7 access to bank and phone records when investigating cases like Jill Meagher's disappearance

by: Editorial From: Herald Sun September 25, 2012 12:00AM

BAD guys don't work nine to five and take weekends off. But checks to see whether Jill Meagher's bank account and mobile phone might have been used after her disappearance on Saturday appear to have been put on hold until yesterday.

Nor was the missing ABC radio manager's bag and ATM card found until early yesterday, when it was discovered in a street near where she would have been walking home.

There are several points to be made about this.

The police knew Ms Meagher was carrying a bank card because they were told by her husband (pictured above with his wife), who reported her missing on Saturday.

Checking to see whether the missing woman's mobile was used after a call to her brother was another line of investigation that might not have been followed up until the traditional start of the business week.

SEVERAL women have used a Facebook page set up to find missing ABC employee Jill Meagher to outline scares they have had in the Brunswick area this year, including one incident in which a man allegedly tried to pull a woman into a car.

~Snipped~

A police spokesperson said the investigation was still in its early stages but police would ''follow up all avenues of inquiry''.

Ms Meagher, an ABC employee, had been out drinking with colleagues after work on Friday, first at the Brunswick Green in Sydney Road and later at Bar Etiquette.

She was initially believed to have left Bar Etiquette about 1.30am, intending to make the short walk to her home in Lux Way, after refusing a colleague's offer to accompany her home.

But she then made a brief phone call to her brother Michael at the family's Perth home about 2am and police now say she may have stayed in the bar to make the call.

Searching for Jill Meagher: family waits for answers, police cordon off crime scene

By ABC Melbourne
24 September, 2012 6:55PM AEST

Victoria Police clarify media speculation about a late night phone call to the brother of missing ABC employee Jill Meagher. Hear from lead detective Steve Bull discussing the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Jill Meagher. Jill was last seen in Brunswick in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Detective Inspector Potter later warned against rumours appearing on social media about a phone call to Ms Meagher's brother.

"I think there's been a bit of confusion over that phone call, we've spoken to the brother certainly and the subject of their discussion was over the health of their father, who I understand is in poor health," says Inspector Potter.

Missing ABC worker's family appeals for help

By Samantha Donovan, ABC
Updated September 25, 2012, 12:15 am

~Snipped~

This afternoon police moved to clarify speculation about a phone call she made the night she went missing.

Ms Meagher's family says she phoned them about 2:00am (AEST), sounding worried.

Her mother, Edith McKeon, says Jill spoke briefly to her brother Michael.

"She sounded worried, there was people in the background and that's the last we've heard from her," she said.

Ms McKeon says Michael then tried to call her back.

"And it just went onto her voicemail," she said.

~Snipped~

Detective Inspector John Potter says Ms Meagher was not in fear of her life when she made the call.

He says she was expressing her worry to her brother about their ill father, who had a stroke a couple of weeks ago.

"I think there's been a bit of confusion over that phone call," the homicide squad's Detective Potter said.

Detective Potter says there is nothing to suggest Ms Meagher was unhappy.

Victoria Police detectives is hoping for a clue on Jill Meagher's path

by: Andrew Rule From: Herald Sun September 25, 2012 12:00AM

HOPE can be cruel. It can end in tears as easily as in joy.

Jill Meagher's family and friends live in hope she will turn up alive.
We all do.

But anyone who walked past the crime scene tape in Hope St, Brunswick, yesterday must fear for the Irish girl with the smile that lights up a room.

One of the many small laneways in Brunswick closed by police in the search for clues about missing Jill Meagher. Picture: Stephen Harmen .

~Snipped~

By lunchtime yesterday, police forensic experts in blue overalls and face masks were combing the lane and another leading into it.
Meanwhile, a crew of grim-faced SES volunteers gathered to be briefed by investigators before fanning out to search the dozens of nooks where a clue might be found.

They did not yet appear to be sifting through the industrial rubbish bins scattered around the neighbourhood. Perhaps they will get to them today, barring a breakthrough in what has inevitably become a homicide squad investigation.

Police check if missing ABC worker's handbag planted

ABC
Updated September 25, 2012, 10:33 am

Homicide detectives are investigating whether the handbag of missing Melbourne woman Jill Meagher was planted by someone involved in her disappearance.

The 29-year-old ABC staffer was last seen in the early hours of Saturday morning after a night out with work colleagues in Brunswick.

A passer by found her handbag yesterday morning in an alley off Hope Street, not far from where she was last seen.

~Snipped~

Detective Inspector John Potter says police had already thoroughly searched the same area.

"There's two options, either police in the original search missed the bag or the bag has since been placed at that laneway after the police searched it originally," he said.

UPDATE: HOMICIDE squad detectives and forensic investigators have arrived at the home of missing woman Jill Meagher this afternoon.

Two unmarked police vans entered Lux Way, Brunswick, in Melbourne's inner-north, just before 12.15pm.

Four members of the Forensic Squad were seen entering the same Lux Way apartment at 12.30pm.

Two Homicide Squad officers were seen approaching the apartment and were heard informing a man via the intercom they were there to "speak to Tom".

Both officers entered the premises at 12.20pm where they are believed to be speaking to Ms Meagher's husband, Tom Meagher.

Jill's handbag 'may have been planted'

Earlier today, police revealed they were investigating whether Ms Meagher's handbag - found after an earlier search of the area - had been planted as a decoy to distract the investigation.

A time stamp on the footage places Ms Meagher, 29, walking north on Sydney Rd less than 100m before Hope St, where her bag was found just around the corner.

Ms Meagher was captured from a camera pointed at the street from within a Sydney Rd boutique.

Duchess Boutique owner Patricia said she installed the cameras for her own safety and never imagined they might capture something so important.

"I just hope it helps. For the sake of Jill being found, I want to do the right thing," she said.

Patricia said the colour video showed Ms Meagher strolling past her shopfront on the side of the road closest to Hope St. She said Ms Meagher had her hair down, and was wearing a black jacket and high-heel shoes.

"I was confident it was her," Patricia said. "She looked different from the photos that have been released," she said. Patricia said Ms Meagher was not using her mobile phone and did not appear to have been followed.

Police to release CCTV vision of missing woman

Updated 3 minutes ago

~Snipped~

The CCTV footage shows Ms Meagher walking north on Sydney Road, just south of Hope Street, at 1:41am (AEST).

Police say phone calls she made to her brother, Michael, in Perth took place at 1:45am.

They say that places Ms Meagher about 400 metres from the apartment she shares with her husband Thomas.

A passer by found her handbag on Monday morning in an alley off Hope Street, not far from where she was last seen.

But yesterday police said the bag had not been seen during an earlier police search and were investigating whether the bag was planted by someone involved in her disappearance.

Police fear Ms Meagher may have met with foul play as she has not answered phone calls or used her bank account since she went missing.

Her mobile phone has not been found.

Police are particularly keen to talk to a man wearing a blue hoodie who appears to be talking to Ms Meagher in the footage.

Detective Inspector John Potter says the man walks past the camera twice before talking to Ms Meagher.

"We're interested in talking to anyone who was in the Sydney Road area," he said.

"We're particularly interested in talking to a man in a blue top who's depicted in the footage and appears to be talking to Jillian.

"There may be a rational explanation to what's happened but he certainly could help us."

Detective Inspector Potter says Ms Meagher has an ABC bag over one shoulder and her handbag over another and she appears to have her mobile phone in her hand.
