It’s been almost 16 years since Laura Haworth disappeared, but investigators haven’t given up hope in finding her.

ACT Policing has renewed its call for information to find Laura, who was last seen at a friend’s house in Queanbeyan on 5 January 2008.

The then-23-year-old left in her red Mazda 121 and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Her car was later found on 18 January parked at Kanangra Court in Reid.

Laura had two children, aged 2 and 3, when she vanished.

ACT Policing believes there are people in the region who have information about Laura and where she could be.

Investigators have urged anyone who has information about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance to come forward.

“Any piece of information, no matter how small, could be of importance to police,” a statement read.
