Detectives have been able to trace Shari’s movements and have established that on 17 February she left a strip club in Dandenong about 10.50pm in the company of a female colleague.
The pair travelled to Croydon and remained at a sporting club for a short time before travelling to the Mentone Hotel.
They remained there with two male friends until about 1am.
Shari and one of the men who was her boyfriend at the time, left the hotel and went back to a nearby residence in Hampton, where they stayed until 2am before taking a taxi to Crown Casino. About 7am Shari’s boyfriend left her on her own at the casino and that was the last time he saw her.
It is believed Shari left the casino about 7.40am and travelled home to Footscray in a taxi.
Police have been able to establish that Shari later left her Footscray home and made two phone calls sometime between 12pm and 2pm from a public phone box at a nearby service station on Ballarat Road, Footscray.
One of the calls was to Shari’s employer confirming she would be at work that evening, however Shari never arrived. The second call was to her boyfriend, arranging to meet him to collect personal items including her mobile phone charger.
