The Queensland Government has doubled the reward for information about the disappearance of Mackay teenager Marilyn Wallman, in a bid to finally solve the state’s longest-running child abduction case.
The 14-year-old was last seen on March 21, 1972 while riding her bike to school.
Police have long believed she was kidnapped and murdered and are now offering a $500,000 reward to anyone who can help find her killer.
They have identified a person of interest, and are appealing for anyone who may have knowledge of what happened to come forward — 46 years later.
Marilyn’s brothers found her bike and school bag beside the road near a cane field, shortly after she vanished.
In 2015, DNA testing confirmed that a partial skull found in 1974 belonged to Marilyn.
Despite repeated pleas from the Wallman family and police for information from the public, the cold case remains unsolved.
