New lead suggests woman missing since 1987 was seen working in Sydney bar

A new lead has been uncovered during Missing Persons Week, which has linked missing woman Ursula Barwick to Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

Ursula Barwick, who was originally from Quirindi NSW, was last seen boarding a train at Tuggerah Railway Station, on the state’s Central Coast in late September 1987 after telling her family she was heading to Hornsby to work in a bohemian retail shop and find accommodation.

She was 17 at the time and has not made contact with family or friends since.

Strike Force Hemingway, comprising officers from Kings Cross Local Area Command, is continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding Ursula’s disappearance.

As part of their inquiries, police released information about Ursula’s disappearance during Missing Persons Week in August this year, after which they received multiple calls to Crime Stoppers.

This included new information that confirmed Ursula had been working behind the bar of the Coach and Horses Hotel, in Randwick, in July 1989.

Detectives are now appealing for anyone she may have worked with at Randwick, or other locals who had contact with her at the time, to come forward.

Police believe Barwick may have met with foul play.
