Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
On the night of December 2, 1979 Gamblin left Bellevue Hill with about $9 in her purse. She turned up at the old Paris Theatre on the corner of Wentworth and Liverpool. The Boy's Own Macbeth,  was playing there, and Jill's boyfriend was doing the lighting. She spent the evening there, then she left by her self, at about 22.15.

According to her boyfriend she said "Strange things could happen tonight, it's a full moon". She left him standing there and crossed Liverpool Street, he thought, to catch a cab to Bellevue Hill. It was the last time anybody claims to have seen her.

Jill had been a regular at French's Tavern on Oxford Street. She was a lively English girl, living in a shared house in Bellevue Hill. She worked as a punch card processor at the time, and made jumpsuits she sold at the markets.

She had expressed interest in sects and alternative religions, including the "Orange People" and a group called the "Temple of Ra".

A man who has since died is said to had spent a weekend with Ms Gamblin at his Blackheath home shortly before she disappeared and had tried to strangle her during a violent argument in a car.

She was reported missing to the Paddington Police Station
