Rideshare driver left missing Victorian woman five days ago – reports

Her phone has been turned off, according to close friends of a missing Victorian woman who has been gone for five days after being dropped off by a rideshare driver.

When she was deposited off along a woodland trail approximately 2.5 kilometers from her house in Nerrim South, about 110 kilometers east of Melbourne, Lucinda Miller, 24, was last seen at 11.30 am on Sunday.

Despite a frantic search being conducted, Victoria Police are very concerned about her wellbeing and do not think a second party was involved in her abduction.

A concerned family member said on Facebook that Ms. Miller’s phone stopped working one day after she left and that her mother and close friends are “frightened and terribly concerned.”

Esther Livingston, a close friend, said on Monday afternoon that “there are huge fears for Lucinda’s safety and wellness.”

“Her phone is now off, and we’ve examined every location that Lucinda is known to go.”

Due to Lucinda’s absence and current state of health, anybody with information or sightings should call the police or ambulance right once.


Around 11 a.m. on Sunday, Ms. Miller was seen on surveillance footage in the southeast Melbourne suburb of Dandenong, just before she was left off on McDougal Road close to the junction of Ingleman Road.

Although the rideshare driver was questioned by police, there is no proof that they were anyhow connected to Ms. Miller’s disappearance.

On Wednesday, some 50 police officers—including a dog squad—and volunteers combed through thick bushland in an effort to find Ms. Miller. The next day, the search team was down to 30 persons, and more people are anticipated to go out on Friday.

Inspector Peter Fusinato of the Victoria Police disclosed that the search’s original focal point, the space between her drop-off location and home, had changed as a result of reports of a probable sighting.

On Wednesday afternoon, a witness came forward to say they could have seen Ms. Miller on Monday several kilometers to the south of the location.


Inspector Fusinato said, “We are speaking with every landowner in that region and investigating every river, stream, road, and trail.”

“Therefore, any property owners… be cautious that she may have gone into your properties and we simply ask that you check all your buildings or outbuildings to make sure that neither no one has been there nor Lucinda is still positioned inside your land,” the message reads.

Inspector Fusinato thought it odd that she never returned home since he knew the forest track to her house.

He suggested that Ms. Miller may not wish to be located.

She could have left on her own own or, more likely, she wounded herself. According to Inspector Fusinato, we’re not really certain.

But we’re pursuing the hypothesis that Lucinda may not want the family to be aware of her return.

Ms. Miller, who is described as being 165 cm tall (about 5’5″), with a slender frame, blonde hair, and blonde eyes, is wanted by police.

She wore a white blouse, pink jeans, a green jumper, a beanie, a scarf, and a face mask when she was last seen.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the Victoria State Emergency Service, and CFA are among of the organizations that have aided police in their search in the thick woodland (Country Fire Authority).

Calling the Warragul Police Station at 5622 7111 is strongly advised for anybody with information on Ms. Miller.
