    TAS 1978 Disappearance Investigation update 

    Friday, 29 May 2015 – 4:30 pm.

    Police receive information in 1978 cold case disappearance.

    Detectives investigating the circumstances surrounding the 1978 disappearance of Darlene Avis Geertsema’s have received a pleasing response from the public following the release of photographs of Ms Geertsema and her red Holden Torana Sunbird on Friday.

    Ms Geertsema was last seen leaving her family home in Devonport on Monday 23 October 1978 at around 10.30pm in her 1977 red Holden Sunbird registration AS4119. Police now believe it is unlikely Ms Geertsema’s disappearance was voluntary and it cannot be ruled out that she may have been the victim of a crime.

    Detective Senior Constable Felicity BOYD from the Devonport Criminal Investigation Branch stated ”We appreciate the information provided by the public, particularly in relation to Ms Geertsema’s vehicle and we will be pursuing every line of enquiry.”

    Search CrimeView For 64784036

    Police have recently re-interviewed a number of people who were involved in Ms Geertsema’s life, including a 67 year old man from Westbury who was in a significant relationship with Ms Geertsema at the time of her disappearance.

    Police encourage anyone who has information relating to the disappearance of Ms Geertsema or about her vehicle to contact Devonport CIB on 64784036 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    TAS Darlene Geertsema Disappearance 

    Friday, 29 May 2015 – 11:01 am.

    Detectives reviewing an investigation into a long-term missing person Darlene Avis Geertsema, of Devonport, have identified a person of interest in her disappearance. While the case was always treated as a missing person investigation, police now believe it is unlikely Ms Geertsema’s disappearance was voluntary and it is possible that she was the victim of a crime.

    As part of the investigation police are working to gain information on what may have become of Ms Geertsema’s red Holden Sunbird vehicle. The last known information about the vehicle is that it was sold to an unknown person by a car yard in Launceston in 1984. It was de-registered in 1987.

    The missing persons report made in October 1978 stated that Ms Geertsema was last seen leaving her family home in Devonport on Monday 23 October 1978 at around 10.30pm in her 1977 red Holden Sunbird registration AS4119. Ms Geertsema was aged 31 and has not been seen or heard from since. Her 5-year-old son, 8-year-old daughter and then partner were in the flat before she disappeared.

    Her vehicle was located in a car park off Victoria Parade in the vicinity of the Devonport Oval on Wednesday 25 October 1978, however, information received at the time confirmed the vehicle was in this position at 7:30am Tuesday morning, the day after her disappearance.

    Police have recently re-interviewed a number of persons who were involved in Ms Geertsema’s life, including the person of interest.

    Investigating officer, Inspector Kim Steven said: ”The disappearance of a friend or neighbour is a significant event and it’s likely that people who were in her life at the time would still have strong memories, even so many years afterwards.

    ”We’re particularly keen to speak to anyone who knew Ms Geertsema or her partner at that time but was never asked to provide a statement to police.

    ”The vehicle may also provide opportunities for forensic analysis and we are seeking information on what may have happened to it after it was sold from the Launceston car yard.”

    TAS Motor vehicle burglaries Devonport 

    Tuesday, 13 January 2015 – 2:44 pm.

    Devonport Police is investigating a series of burglaries that occurred over the weekend, where offenders have targeted vehicles parked in caravan parks and motel car parks.

    ”There are many influences that contribute to offenders breaking into vehicles and we are confident these burglaries are opportunistic. However it is concerning that almost all of the vehicles were left unlocked and valuable property was left inside,” said Detective Acting Sergeant Felicity Boyd.

    ”The importance of vehicle security is a message we have been conveying to the public for years and it is frustrating for us when vehicles are left unsecured and property such as loose change, mobile phones, GPS devices, iPods, wallets and laptops are left visible,” she said.
