Hunt for missing woman after personal items found
Les Kennedy - SMH
August 9, 2006

A BUSH back road to the HMAS Albatross air base on the South Coast is the focus of an intense search that police hope will provide new clues to the disappearance of a Sydney prostitute.

Personal items belonging to Lisa Ann Moy, who was 48 when she disappeared a year ago, were recently found by a man jogging along Parma Road, a dirt and bitumen track linking the Princes Highway to Braidwood Road to the rear of the naval base at South Nowra.

Almost 100 searchers, including police on horseback and trail bikes, local State Emergency Service and Rural Fire Brigade volunteers, Volunteer Rescue Association personnel and local riding clubs began searching a 200-hectare area of thick bush running along the road on Monday.

The search, which involved a police helicopter and is expected to continue today, is being co-ordinated by Bankstown police investigating the disappearance of Ms Moy, a mother of two adult children.

At the search command post at South Nowra yesterday, Detective Sergeant Tony Karras from Bankstown said that for investigative reasons police could not reveal what items had been found, or exactly when.

However, he said that police dogs trained in locating decomposing human remains have been deployed in the search operation.

Detective Sergeant Karras said Ms Moy, who lived in a Punchbowl unit, was a full-time street prostitute who worked at night in a light industrial area near the intersection of Canterbury Road and Fairford Road.

Because of trouble with roadside clients in past years, women engaging in street prostitution at that location kept watch on other women working the same area, he said.

"She was last seen about 3am on April 3 last year by another worker on the opposite side of the intersection who went off with a client. When she returned her friend was gone," Detective Sergeant Karras said.

He said prostitutes working that strip kept a change of clothes hidden nearby, and when this was located later with a number of other effects, concerns for Ms Moy's safety were raised.

Detective Sergeant Karras said no one had come forward to date to say if they saw Ms Moy later that morning or what type of vehicle she may have got into. When last seen alive she was wearing a black short skirt, white top and fishnet stockings with high heels.

A MISSING Sydney sex worker's possessions have been found in bushland on the New South Wales south coast today.

Dozens of police today searched an area off Parma Road, south of Nowra, where they believe Lisa Moy may have been murdered.
The 52-year-old was last seen on Canterbury Road, Bankstown, in Sydney's south-west, on April 3 last year.

Network Ten reported today that Ms Moy was a sex worker who had worked in the area, and that NSW police had interviewed a client she was with about 2am (AEST) on the day she disappeared.

Detectives would not reveal what items were found in the bush, but said they feared the prostitute had been murdered and her body dumped.

"She went missing on April 3, 2005, and hasn't been heard of since," Detective Sergeant Tony Karras said today.

"Nothing has been touched no bank records or anything has been touched since then."

About 70 police and SES officers combed the bushland without success today, hoping to find clues to Ms Moy's disappearance.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

"We're searching probably a couple of hundred hectares, which is one of the largest searches we've done in this area, we've used probably up to over 100 volunteers over the last couple of days, and we're searching the west Nowra area, which incorporates from Yerriyong Road all the way down towards Albatross Road as well," he said.
