A mother has spoken of her anguish after learning her daughter disappeared during a day of family celebrations in February.
Emma Watson was out celebrating with her three children at her grandparents’ house on the Sunshine Coast.
She was last seen leaving her home at 11.30am and police said she was last spotted in the area of St Andrews Road and Mudgee Avenue, south of the town of Westport.
“I didn’t get the phone call from the police.
It’s like they didn’t even know what they were doing,” Ms Watson said.
Ms Watson said her youngest daughter, who was born just months ago, was never seen again.
Her older daughter, a nurse, has never been seen or heard from.
‘They just didn’t care’ Ms Simpson said her oldest daughter, aged just eight, was very active and playful.
“[My youngest] was always just around, playing with the kids.
We were just talking about it,” she said.
“It was just so, so disappointing to know that something like that could happen.”
“The police don’t do anything because they don’t care.
The police just don’t want to do anything, so they don.
It just didn, doesn’t, doesn´t,” Ms Simpson said.
Ms Simpson was left to cope with the loss of her son and daughter.
“It was all they wanted to do,” she told 7.30.
A friend of Ms Watson’s, who asked not to be named, said she had only recently come to terms with her loss. “
They just don´t care.”
A friend of Ms Watson’s, who asked not to be named, said she had only recently come to terms with her loss.
It was a difficult time for everyone involved, the friend said.
“I’m very sorry for what happened.
But I don’t think that there was a lot of malice.
I think it was just that there wasn’t enough of it,” the friend told 7-11.
Police said Ms Watson was last heard from about 10:45am on February 6, 2016, near the intersection of St Johns Street and Muntinlupa Road.
They said she may have been driving the car and may have taken the wrong turn or been distracted.
A police spokeswoman said Ms Simpson had not been previously interviewed, and police were conducting a review of the case.
