Related coverage:

Police are reiterating their call for information into the disappearance and presumed murder of Sylvia Pajuczok in 2008.

They are offering a $100,000 reward for information into the case. 

The 53-year-old mother of three and grandmother of five vanished on Christmas Eve from a friend’s house in Bombala.

She has not been seen or heard from since, and her bank account has not been accessed.

Ms Pajuczok’s green Toyota Tarago van was found abandoned by the side of the Monaro Hwy, 10km south of Bombala.

The movements of a white van described as a Toyota Hiace, seen parked near the home Ms Pajuczok had been visiting at the time, are the subject of police investigations.

The occupant/occupants of the van may have been travelling from interstate at the time and detectives want to talk to the driver to eliminate them from the investigation.

Someone in the community knows what happened to Ms Pajuczok, now is the time to come forward with information to help solve the mystery that has haunted her family for nearly seven years.

Police would like nothing more than for someone to come forward with the information needed to find the person or people responsible for her disappearance and presumed murder.

This case will remain active until it is solved.

Ms Pajuczok’s disappearance is totally out of character as she would always be in regular contact with her family and friends.

Investigators have been following a number of lines of inquiries and are still treating Ms Pajuczok’s disappearance as suspicious.

The doting mother and grandmother did not just vanish one day; police know there is someone out there who has information about where she is.
