Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Mary Louise Wallace was last seen leaving the Alpine Inn wine bar in Crow's Nest with a man she had met while out with friends in September 1983.
The group had previously been at the Stoned Crow bar and before that at the Malaya Restaurant until 1am. During their time at the Alpine Inn a man was paying particular attention to Mary. Mary was seen at 3am talking to this man.
She had been feeling unwell and was sick in the toilets of the wine bar. Mary's friends attempted to look after her but the man told her friend he was a Police officer and offered to escort Mary home. The man helped Mary into his brown 1982 Holden Commodore, parked on Willoughby Road outside the Alpine Inn. The man drove off with Mary, headed West and this was the last time Mary was ever seen.

Police did find the blonde man who denied murdering Mary. He admitted he had lied about being a Police officer.

Ms Wallace never made it back to her Drummoyne apartment and did not attend a family function the next day.
Mary was a nursing sister at Hunters Hill private nursing hospital in Sydney.
Foul play is suspected.
