12-year-old Sunshine Coast schoolgirl Sian Kingi was looking forward to her friend’s upcoming birthday party. She joined her mother at the shops in Noosa Heads to buy fabric for a new outfit and then rode her usual bike route home.
When Sian still hadn’t returned home by nighttime, her parents retraced her steps and found her beloved bike seemingly abandoned in Pinaroo Park. They immediately knew that something was wrong. Despite the fast actions of police and support from the Noosa community, Sian’s disappearance quickly became every parent’s worst nightmare.
