Circumstances

Toni Cavanagh, then aged 15, was last seen on 27 July 1979 around 7.30pm in the company of Kay Docherty, aged 16 (also missing). Both girls left their homes and did not return. Kay told her parents she was staying at Toni's house, and Toni told her family they were going to the movies with Kay's aunt and uncle. There was a sighting of the two at Bulli Tops, shortly afterwards. It's believed the girls were on their way to the Wollongong CBD to attend a disco, but it's not known whether they ever made it.

Both girls were reported missing to the police on Sunday 29th July. The following week, Toni and Kay's families received separate letters from the pair posted from the Kings Cross area, saying they were staying with friends and would be home soon.

There have been no confirmed sightings of the girls since they were seen at a Bulli Tops bus stop at dusk on the evening of Friday 27, although there was an unconfirmed sighting in Queensland in 1984. There are grave concerns for the safety and welfare of the girls.

A reward of $100,000 is offered for information to solve the double disappearance. If you have information that may assist police to locate Kay please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
