Kate Alexander
Missing since March 31, 1974 from Yarralumla, Australian Capital Territory, Australia.
Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Alexander was last seen by her relatives about 14.30 on Sunday, March 31, 1974 at her home address - 1 Hampton Circuit Yarralumla ACT.

She is absent-minded and fears are held for safety. She is described as being an unassuming type of person and could easily be taken advantage of. She would not seek help, but rather wander aimlessly around. Alexander was prone to fret very badly since her husbands death and had been living with her son, who was absent at the time of her disappearance.

She is believed to have had about $50.00 cash in her possession, a pension card and a bus pass at the time of her disappearance.

Information received would indicate that Alexander was given a lift to Queanbeyan NSW between 11.00 and 12.30 on Monday, April 1, 1974 and was last seen in Atkinson Street Queanbeyan walking toward bushland at the rear of the Queanbeyan Golf Course.

A further report received indicates that she could have visited the Nimble-Timble shop in McQuoid Street Queanbeyan about 12.30 on April 10, 1974. Relatives are of the opinion that Alexander has become lost and is wandering.

She was at one time employed as a housemaid in a Canberra Motel and if she is suffering from a loss of memory, may attempt to find similar employment.

Police searches in the Canberra and Queanbeyan areas have failed to reveal any traces of Alexander.
