Emmadilla Peacock-Lewis has been missing since September 28 Photo: Queensland Police ServiceA 15-year-old missing girl that police have “serious concerns” for may be interstate with a man in his 40s, police believe
Emmadilla Peacock-Lewis has not made contact with family or friends and was last seen leaving a property on French Street in East Toowoomba on September 28.
Police have not uncovered “any evidence of activity” from the girl, including on her social media accounts, Detective Senior Sergeant Damien Powell said.
Senior Sergeant Powell, who heads the Missing Persons Unit, said the case had not reached the stage where it was considered a homicide investigation.
He said Emmadilla and the man – who has been described as a friend – may have travelled to Tasmania because he has links to the state. However he said Queensland and Tasmanian police had failed to find any leads.
“With the passage of time it becomes more and more concerning,” Senior Sergeant Powell said.
“It’s possible she may be in the Brisbane or Toowoomba area, it’s possible she may have travelled interstate. They may still be in Southeast Queensland.
“We believe he’s been in Queensland for approximately six months in the Toowoomba area. He’s not employed and we don’t know of a mode of transport for him.”
Senior Sergeant Powell said the disappearance was out of character for the girl.
The case comes after the high-profile disappearances of two Southeast Queensland girls, both of which appear to have ended in tragic circumstances.
Police believe 16-year-old Gatton girl Jayde Kendall was murdered by friend Brenden Bennetts, discovering her body two weeks after she went missing in August. Mr Bennetts has previously indicated that he will fight the murder charge.
Meanwhile the body of Tiffany Taylor, 16, has not been found but police have laid murder charges against 60-year-old man Rodney Wayne Williams.
