**Revelle's sister Suellen has never stopped searching for her sister and is determined to find her.  She wants to send this message out to anyone with information. There is a reward on offer by the NSW Government which has been upgraded from $100,000 to $250,000.

These are Suellen's own words about Revelle's movements the night she disappeared. This account comes directly from Revelle's family who knew and loved her best.

"Revelle was supposed to catch the 9:30am train from Sydney to Newcastle to meet her mother on Sunday morning 6 November 1994; she was to arrive at 11am.   Revelle wanted to say goodbye to her parents before she left for Brisbane for a 2 week dance rehearsal before leaving for Japan on another 6 month dance contract.  She was due to meet a girlfriend on Saturday evening 5 Nov, 1994 but failed to keep this appointment.  Later that evening she was to meet her boyfriend, but failed to keep this appointment as well.  Her girlfriend last spoke to her by phone at 7:15pm.  A man told Police she was driven from premises at Kingsford, Sydney to the Red Tomato Inn at 7.00pm.  No one from the Inn ever saw her. Revelle has not been seen since this time. 
Police interviewed the 31 yr old man who had been with Revelle that afternoon and early evening but no charges were ever laid.  Police and the coroner believed she had been murdered.  Detectives questioned the agency's owner and many of her friends. 

The New South Wales government renewed and upgraded the reward from $100,000 to $250,000 which is still current to anyone who could help police in locating her.

In May '99 John Abernethy, Deputy State Coroner deemed the investigation as an open finding.  Her file will never close until she is found and someone is prosecuted.

As her sister I want to know what happened to her, its been 14 yrs since her disappearance and I think of her every day, it never leaves my mind.  If you have any information that could help me find her, please contact Police on 1800 333 000.
