A search is currently underway for missing Sydney teenager Cassie Olczak.
The 16-year-old girl from South Sydney went missing on Sunday night after getting off a train at Waterfall station. She was last seen in CCTV footage shot at the station.
A search party consisting of police air, trail bikes, four wheel drives, dogs and foot police is currently investigating bushland surrounding the station.
Cassie had only been in the country for 24 hours after visiting her father in Abu Dhabi. Cassie’s mother Connie Olczak held a press conference today, expressing her concerns for her daughter.
“She needs help, she needs medical attention, she’s been missing 76 hours with no food, no water and no access to bank accounts,” Mrs Olczak said.
“The only places she would go is places she is familiar with.”
Superintendent Gary Ford said Cassie did not look disoriented in the CCTV footage.
“A number of leads have come through since that time, which have all been followed up, none have given us any positive sightings to this date,” said Supt Ford.
Supt. Ford refused to comment as to whether any illegal substance was involved in the case.
Anyone with any information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. – CJ Cowen.
