*Further information from Missing Persons Unit TV show - Ronya had an argument with her mother and brother the night she disappeared and she went to her bedroom. She has not been seen since that time. She had been planning to run away with her school friend Sarah, but this did not happen. The morning after Ronya disappeared Sarah's brother Lee, who is now deceased, saw Ronya's school bag inside an abandoned bus at a residence across the road from Ronya's home. Ronya was very possessive of the bag and it did not normally leave her possession.
Ronya's mother Elsa Pantarotto is still living in the same house Ronya disappeared from. Around the same time as Ronya went missing, Elsa was involved with a man who was removed from the home by Police and he moved into the abandoned bus across the road from the house. This man is being interviewed by Police.
