Search for Pyramid Hill woman enters fifth year

Krystal Fraser was last seen wearing an orange top, black track suit pants and a camouflaged-patterned baseball cap.

It has been five years since Pyramid Hill woman Krystal Fraser disappeared from the small farming community.

Police investigators believe Ms Fraser was murdered, but are still searching for answers despite extensive investigations.

The 24-year-old intellectually impaired woman was heavily pregnant when she was last seen on June 20, 2009.

A Victoria Police spokeswoman said on Friday the investigation was continuing and urged anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.

A $100,000 reward, offered in 2012, remains for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Ms Fraser’s death.

At the time, Homicide Squad Detective Inspector John Potter said he believed someone from Pyramid Hill, Leitchville or Gunbower knew something and hoped the reward would encourage them to contact police.

‘‘This is a tragic crime, involving a woman and her unborn child and we’re hoping someone in these communities will be able to shed some light on what happened to Krystal,’’ Det. Insp. Potter said.

‘‘Over past the three years, there has been constant rumour and misinformation about Krystal and her whereabouts, which has subjected the Fraser family to false hopes and heartache over their missing daughter.’’

What police know is that Krystal travelled on a V/Line train from Bendigo to Pyramid Hill on June 20, 2009, before arriving at Pyramid Hill railway station about 8.40pm.

She was last seen leaving an address in Albert St, Pyramid Hill, about 9.30pm, after visiting an acquaintance.

She also received a call on her mobile phone from a public phone booth outside the Leitchville post office in Findlay St just before midnight.
