Dif­fi­cult time for Spiers fam­ily

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

THE par­ents of Sarah Spiers have spo­ken of their an­guish al­most 20 years af­ter their 18-year-old daugh­ter went miss­ing from Clare­mont.

In a state­ment, Don and Carol Spiers said time had not healed the loss of their daugh­ter, who was last seen in the early hours of Jan­uary 27, 1996.

“Words are in­ad­e­quate to de­scribe our per­sonal loss and heart­break,” they said. “It’s hard not to won­der what Sarah’s life, and ours, could have been had she not been taken from us.

“She was so full of life and had a great love of fam­ily.”

Mr and Mrs Spiers thanked their fam­ily and friends for their sup­port.

“We also want to thank po­lice for their sup­port and for keep­ing us in­formed about the in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” they said.

“We have been dis­ap­pointed in some me­dia cov­er­age on oc­ca­sion in the past, and in par­tic­u­lar, re­ports that have po­ten­tially mis­led pub­lic think­ing and there­fore jeop­ar­dised the on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”
