On 8 October 1970, Hazel picked up her work colleague Joyce EASTWOOD from home, along with her two sons, to attend their place of employment (Noarlunga Meatworks).
The boys were dropped off at the gate whilst Hazel parked the car. There was a security guard on duty at the gate and he stated that the women arrived at the meatworks between 7.00am – 8.00am where they unloaded two suitcases and were almost immediately both collected by a male taxi driver and drove off, leaving the car (mini minor) in the car park.
It is believed that the women both handed in the resignations about a week prior to leaving. No contact has ever been received from any members of the families.
If you have information that may assist police to locate Hazel please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
