- Aged 27. Traveller.
- Last been seen alive hiking along Booloumba Creek Road on July 16, 1998, on her way to a weekend birdwatching camp.
- Last person to speak to her was Piabun farm supervisor Geoff Turner, whom she had approached to ask for directions to the camping ground.
- Maroochydore coroner Paul Johnstone on November 15, 2002, considered the most likely scenario was that Ms Bridge had been abducted on the 1.5km stretch of Booloumba Creek Road between where she met Mr Turner and the camping ground
- Her body and possessions disposed of by her killer.
Sabrina Ann Glassop
- Aged 46. Teachers aide from Kenilworth
- Last been seen alive by her husband, Eric Glassop, about 8.30pm on May 28, 1999, at her home on the corner of Booloumba Creek Rd.
- The next morning Mrs Glassop's parents, Joan and John Worsley, who lived in a caravan next to the house, had heard her dogs stirring and her car being driven off quickly towards Kenilworth.
- The car, with a steering lock in position, was found later that day parked about 500m from her home.
- No trace of her or pet poodle Poppy had ever been found.
Maroochydore coroner Paul Johnstone on November 15, 2002, delivered his findings into the women's disappearance.
He found both women had been murdered, "having met with foul play resulting in their untimely deaths" with their bodies subsequently concealed by their murderer.
In 2002 a person serving a life term for a separate murder was linked to the disappearance of the girls, however Mr Johnstone ruled there was no direct evidence to commit him or anyone else for trial.
Sabrina Ann GLASSOP
On 29 May 1999, Sabrina Ann GLASSOP, 46 years, was reported missing to Kenilworth police by her estranged husband Eric GLASSOP. Mr GLASSOP had last seen his wife at about 8.30 pm the previous evening when they dined together at her residence in Booloumba Creek Road, Kenilworth. Her parents, John and Joan WORSLEY reported hearing her vehicle, a red 1997 Suzuki Alto Reg. No. 274DXA, leave the residence at about 6.00 am on 29 May 1999 and drive towards Kenilworth. The vehicle was later located in the Little Yabba Creek carpark. A search of the area where her vehicle was located failed to find any trace of the victim or of her poodle dog.

Search of forest, Bridge and Glassop suspected murders, Kenilworth
Updated - ABC
Queensland police say investigations into two unsolved suspected murder cases on the Sunshine Coast will continue.
British backpacker Celena Bridge, 28, disappeared in the Kenilworth area in 1998 and 10 months later local woman Sabrina Ann Glassop, 46, vanished in the same area.
Acting on new leads, police and State Emergency Service (SES) crews yesterday searched bushland in a Kenilworth forest.
Detective Senior Sergeant Marc Bailey says there will be more searches in the future.
"To this stage nothing's been turned up but we do have to go over a couple of other areas at a later date with scientific officers," he said.
"As you can appreciate, we were just acting on information that we had received and as result we had to go to that area so it wasn't a case of specifically looking for anything, it was a case of looking for anything and everything."
He says the police will not give up on the case.
"Sometimes the public perceive that we close cases but I can assure the public now that no case that has never been closed is ever closed, it always remains open," he said.
"That's the case with this one - it's been reviewed and as result further investigations are being conducted."
Behind one of the Coast's biggest mysteries
BACKGROUNDER by Janine Hill Ballina Shire Advocate
WHEN British backpacker Celena Bridge began a hike in the Sunshine Coast hinterland on a winter's day in 1998, she walked into a mystery that would envelope two more women and intrigue Australia for the next seven years.
Ms Bridge was the first of three women to go missing on the Coast in a 16 month period. All of them are now assumed to be dead.
Each was linked in some way to a man named Derek Bellington Sam, although he has only ever been charged and convicted of one murder, that of teenager Jessica Gaudie - the last of the three to disappear.
Finding the missing women, or their bodies, has been like looking for a needle in a haystack for police - without knowing exactly where to find even the haystack.
In all three cases detectives have been frustrated tracing the women's final hours, with either no, or hazy, reported sightings to follow up to help pinpoint a location.
Extensive searches in the Kenilworth area, which involved police camping out overnight in rough terrain and climbing into ravines, failed to turn up anything.
Detective Superintendent Mike Condon, of the Brisbane Homicide Squad, said there were many deep mine shafts in the area that were too dangerous to be searched.
Ms Bridge could have met her fate up to 25 days before anyone realised something was wrong.
The 28-year-old environmental science graduate was in Australia on a backpacking trip to study ecosystems and birdlife when she disappeared.
She had stayed two nights at a "commune'' in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, the Crystal Waters permaculture village at Conondale, before she set off on July 16 to walk to the Little Yabba Creek camping ground at Kenilworth for a bird- watching meeting the following weekend.
She never arrived.
However, it was not until August 10, when she failed to meet her boyfriend, Johnathon Webb, when he flew over from England to join her that anyone realised she was missing.
Searches of the area failed to find any trace of Ms Bridge or her backpack.
Ms Bridge was seen about 3.30pm on July 16 by a resident of Booloumba Creek Road, and also that afternoon by two men who worked with Derek Sam at Piabun, a centre for troubled Aboriginal youths, on the same road.
However, unlike his boss Mark Johnson and workmates John Poole and Geoff Turner, who identified the person they saw as Ms Bridge, Sam told a 2002 coronial inquest he could not identify the person he saw as male or female, let alone as Celena Bridge.
That same inquiry also looked into the disappearances of Sabrina Ann Glassop and Jessica Gaudie. Ms Glassop was known to Sam and the two were rumoured by some to have been having an affair.
The 47-year-old teacher aid, who lived on the same road as Ms Bridge was last seen, and the same road as the Piabun centre where Derek Sam worked, disappeared on May 29, 1999.
Her car was found at the Little Yabba Creek rest area, just a few hundred metres from her home, where she is believed to have taken her poodle, Poppy, for a walk.
She had dined with her husband, Eric, the night before. He lived in the Kenilworth Forestry office and they made arrangements that he would return the next morning with newspapers and fresh bread for breakfast.
The next morning, Ms Glassop's mother, Joan Worsley, who lived with her husband in a caravan behind her daughter's house, heard her car leave about 6am or 6.30am.
Mrs Worsley became concerned when her daughter failed to return, leaving the animals unfed and the gate open. Eric was also concerned when he arrived for breakfast.
On his way back to the office, he spotted her car. He stopped and noticed it was locked and the bonnet slightly warm.
As with Ms Bridge, searches for Ann Glassop turned up nothing.
Sam's Piabun colleague, John Poole, later told an inquest that Sam had made lewd comments about Ms Glassop and boasted of doing some work at a teacher's house and having a date with one.
Mr Poole told the inquest that a few days after Ms Glassop's disappearance, Sam had acted strangely during a horse ride, taking different routes through the bush, and avoiding an area known as Spike's Hut.
Jessica Gaudie went missing almost three months to the day after Ms Glassop disappeared. However, she was almost instantly linked with Derek Sam, who was later convicted of her murder.
Jessica was never seen by her family after she left home on August 28 to babysit three young children, for Derek Sam's estranged de facto, Mia Summers, who lived a short distance away in Ridgewood Street, Burnside, and wanted to go to a birthday party that evening.
That night, Sam turned up at the same party and was involved in an argument with another man over Mia. He told police he went back to Mia Summers' house and picked up Jessica to ask her to go into the party and get Mia to come home.
He claimed he had dropped Jessica off at the intersection of Bonney and Elizabeth streets, Nambour.
DETECTIVES are preparing to put the disappearance of three women on the Sunshine Coast in the late 1990s back on the agenda.
British backpacker Celena Bridge, 28, was the first of the three to go missing in a 16-month period. Sabrina Ann Glassop, 46, was the second and Jessica Gaudie, 16, the third.
Their bodies have never been found but police have long believed all three disappeared at the hands of Kenilworth-based indigenous tracker Derek Bellington Sam, 38.
The three women were all linked in some way to Sam, who is serving jail time for the murder of Jessica.
Sunshine Coast detective Daren Edwards, a cold case specialist who became the Criminal Investigation Bureau chief earlier this year, had promised to pursue the disappearances to give the women's families answers.
But the Daniel Morcombe investigation took precedence after an arrest in August and resources were allocated to an extensive search near the Glasshouse Mountains.
This week Snr Sgt Edwards said he would pursue the investigation with renewed vigour in the new year.
"We're in the process of getting all the original files from Homicide to have a proper read," he said.
"We want to refresh our minds, do a review of everything and find out where everyone is.
"But right now we're trying to tidy up the Major Incident Room here (which has been the heart of the Morcombe investigation) to make it more user friendly. Our aim is to take a new direction on this investigation with fresh eyes."
The families of three murder victims on Queensland's Sunshine Coast hope the unsolved cases will get more focus now Daniel Morcombe's killer has been jailed.
Before the Queensland teenager's abduction and murder in 2003, two women and another teenager disappeared from the Sunshine Coast.
Brett Peter Cowan was jailed for Daniel's murder after detectives spent a decade on the investigation.
Five years before Daniel was abducted, the first of two women, Celena Bridge, and teenager Jessica Gaudie vanished without a trace.
Derek Sam is behind bars for killing 15-year-old Jessica, but her body has never been found.
If people keep saying her name then police might try harder ... it just worked for the Morcombes so I thought it might work for me.Sister Tammy Gaudie
Kenilworth teacher's aide Sabrina Glassop, better known as Anne, disappeared in 1999.
Police have always suspected their bodies are in the forest around the hinterland town of Kenilworth, but searches have turned up nothing.
Sam is also a person of interest in the disappearance and suspected murders of the two women.
With the Morcombe case closed, the affected families are appealing to police to make finding their relatives a priority.
Only one family knows for sure their loved one was murdered, but they are still waiting for closure.
7.30 Queensland has spoken exclusively with two of the families who are desperate for police to shine a light on their cases.
Kelly Dodd last saw her younger sister Jessica Gaudie in August 1999.
"I'm hoping that they will continue on and maybe step it up a little bit and do some searches," Ms Dodd said.
"She was just starting to do her own thing and have a boyfriend."
The 15-year-old was babysitting children in Nambour when she was murdered by the children's father.
Sam claims he picked her up from the house and dropped her at a party he had been to earlier that night. However, she never showed up.
A jury found him guilty of murder and he was jailed for life, but Jessica's body was never found.
Her sister, Tammy Gaudie, says it leaves an "empty, sick feeling".
"My sister's not the kind of girl to sit there and take something that's happening, and I think she tried to fight back and he took it out on her," she said.
Jessica's mother Pauline Gaudie says the family needs to know what happened.
"If I knew where she was, that would probably give us closure," she said.
British tourist Ms Bridge, 28, was the first of the three to vanish.
Ms Bridge was last seen walking along Booloumba Creek Road at Kenilworth in July 1998.
She was hiking to the nearby Little Yabba Creek camping ground.
Ms Glassop was the next to disappear. Her car was found parked at Little Yabba Creek, a short distance from her home, in May 1999.
Neither she nor her pet poodle were seen again.
Ms Glassop's son Jed Moore says she was an "incredibly loving, caring and giving person".
"Not having any closure, not having any idea of how, why or where she died - that's the hardest part," he said.
Police and State Emergency Service officers combed large areas of forestry for any evidence several times, with the last search in 2007.
The case was reopened in July 2012 when police received new information, but as yet no-one has been charged and the bodies are still missing.
A coronial inquest named Sam as a person of interest in both women's disappearances.
The experienced horseman and tracker worked with troubled youth in the area of Kenilworth, but there was not enough evidence to charge him.
Mr Moore says he suspects Sam killed his mother, Anne Glassop.
His grandmother Joan Worsley, who kept the case in the public eye, died last year.
"One of the biggest regrets for her was to go without knowing what'd happened to mum," Mr Moore said.
Like Mr Moore, Tammy Gaudie has avoided the media spotlight, trusting that police would solve the mystery.
But she is worried her mother will also die not knowing where her daughter is.
"I have more time so I can keep fighting for them but she's not going to have much more time," she said.
Not having any closure, not having any you know idea of how, why or where she died - that's the hardest part.Anne Glassop's son, Jed Moore
She recently created a Facebook page devoted to finding her sister's remains.
"If people keep saying her name then police might try harder - I'm not sure," she said.
"It just worked for the Morcombes so I thought it might work for me."
It is difficult for Pauline Gaudie to hear Daniel's name.
"It just makes me think that they were just focussed on just the one person all the time," she said.
With Sam eligible for parole next year and the Morcombe case closed, Pauline Gaudie and her family want police to make finding Jessica's body a priority.
"I know they've got a lot of cases out there but we've been shoved with the rest of them," she said.
Pauline Gaudie is urging people to come forward with information.
"You're not going to get in trouble over it," she said.
Kelly Dodd is hopeful more can be done now that Daniel's case is finished.
"That would be really, really great if they could do as much for our family as they've done for the Morcombe family," she said.
Like the Morcombe case, Mr Moore hopes police are doing more than he is aware of.
"There's hope that comes to me through understanding the way the police have handled that matter," he said.
"That a similar level of resources would be applied to mum's case, and also Celena and Jessica's."
The families all want, and need, the same thing - closure.
They all believe someone, somewhere, knows something that could bring the investigations to an end.
"Closure, the ability to say goodbye and to have somewhere that we can go and pay our respects and be in touch," Mr Moore said.
Kelly Dodd adds: "I don't like the idea of her being out somewhere alone - that is quite hard to deal with."
7.30 Queensland requested an interview with police or a statement about the cases, but the request was declined.
