St. Marys Local Area Command
Mystery Surrounds Woman’s Disappearance
Investigators are seeking clues into the mysterious disappearance of a woman from western Sydney earlier this month.
Jennifer Keegan, 52, was last seen at 10.30 am on Tuesday (5 January 2010) at her home in Derby Street, Kingswood.
She was reported missing by a neighbour later that day.
Her car, a yellow 1981 Datsun Sunny was found abandoned at the Govetts Leap car park at Blackheath several days later.
A subsequent search of the area by officers from Police rescue failed to find any other trace of her. Her car was also forensically examined but did not hold any further clues as to her whereabouts.
Police have today released CCTV which captured her buying fuel at a service station on Parker Street at Kingswood on the afternoon she was last seen. This is her last known confirmed sighting.
St. Marys Local Area Command Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Anthony Holton said her disappearance has her family and friends deeply worried.
“It is totally out of character for Jennifer to go away for this period of time without making contact with loved ones.” Detective Inspector Holton said.
“We have been in close contact with her family in Queensland, who has told us Jennifer gave no indication that anything was wrong.”
“We are hopeful she is safe but cannot rule out the possibility of some type of misadventure.” Detective Inspector Holton said.
“At this point in the investigation, it is vital we find someone who might have seen Jennifer or her car at the Govetts Leap car park.”
“We need to establish who parked the car at that location and, if it was Jennifer, how she left the area.”
“Anyone with that information needs to come forward immediately.” Detective Inspector Holton said.
Ms. Keegan is described as being of white/European appearance being 165 cm tall thin build, with shoulder length reddish brown hair which is greying.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen Ms. Keegan or has information regarding her current whereabouts to contact them immediately at St. Marys Police Station (02) 9677 7499 Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
