As part of National Missing Persons Week, Karen Fraser is hoping someone may come forward weith information about her daughter Krystal.IVY WISE August 8, 2014 3:30am
The mother of Krystal Fraser, who disappeared from Pyramid Hill more than five years ago, is still looking for answers.
Karen Fraser fears the worst, but believes someone knows what happened to her 24-year-old daughter on that fateful day in June 2009.
‘‘Somebody out there knows something and they need to come forward,’’ she said.
‘‘Someone needs to grow a conscience.
‘‘She was well known in the area and she knew people.
‘‘I’ve come to terms with the fact that I may never know, but her brother and sister need answers.’’
Her plea comes as National Missing Persons Week ends today.
Mrs Fraser said her daughter, who was intellectually impaired, was nine months’ pregnant when she disappeared.
‘‘She was ecstatic about the pregnancy,’’ she said, despite there being no mention of the father.
‘‘I wasn’t ecstatic. I knew she would need a lot of help.
‘‘It was a bit of a shock as she didn’t find out until she was 22 weeks.’’
Mrs Fraser and her husband were living in Horsham at the time and spoke to their daughter the day she went missing.
‘‘She sounded good. She was supposed to be in Bendigo Base Hospital, but it was really noisy when I spoke to her,’’ she said.
‘‘I believe now she was at the train station. We made plans to meet the next Friday for a DVD night.
‘‘She wasn’t trying to run away. She wasn’t capable.’’
Mrs Fraser does not believe her daughter is still alive because of her family-oriented nature and compulsive behaviour.
‘‘She was always on her phone. I heard from my daughter 20 times a day, every day,’’ she said.
‘‘If she was out there, she would have found a way to contact me.
‘‘I believe she was murdered. I think she told somebody about the (baby’s) father and he didn’t like it and things got out of control.
‘‘She was way too friendly, which was a major concern.’’
The hardest part was not knowing where her daughter was, Mrs Fraser said.
‘‘It’s very hard. When you lose a loved one, you get a funeral, you get closure, you know where your person is,’’ she said.
‘‘I don’t know where Krystal is. If it’s raining, I wonder if she’s warm and dry, if it’s hot, I wonder if she’s staying out of the sun.
‘‘I just take one day at a time. She’s gone. I have no answers. I know nothing and the police know nothing.’’
A $100,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Krystal’s death still stands.
