The disappearance of Michaela Godau (15) who disappeared from her Elizabeth Field (now Davoren Park) home overnight on 19-20 December 1982.
Michaela Godau was born in Germany in 1967, but in November 1981 her family, including her mother Emmi and adopted father Herwarth moved to Davoren Park, which was then known as Elizabeth Field.
In July 1982 the 15-year-old’s mother returned to Germany to work leaving Michaela, her brother Axel, and Herwarth at the Davoren Park address. About 10pm on 19 December, Michaela went to bed, and by the morning of 20 December she was missing.
Her father reported her missing at 5.35pm that day and she
has not been seen since.
Some of her personal items, cash and her passport were missing, but Detectives who investigated the circumstances of the case believe that Michaela may have met with foul play.
