Well done

Thank you for bringing this story to our attention with your podcast. Hope it leads to that smoking gun and some important leads from the public. The evidence does seem overwhelming, I must say. Look forward to any updates on searches and new information.

Great podcast

As a NQ local I found this very interesting. Great research and some angles I’d never heard before. I really hope Rachel’s family get some answers.

As an aside, I was particularly interested to hear that the police officer who took the initial report of her disappearance was Mick Isles, who of course went missing himself in mysterious circumstances and has never been found. What a strange coincidence. There’s another podcast there!
