Police, family appeal to public for help on Oita woman's disappearance in 2016


Oita prefectural police and the father of a 24-year-old woman who disappeared seven years ago on Tuesday appealed to the public for any information that might shed light on her whereabouts.

Misaki Gojobori, a company employee in Oita City, was last seen at around 11:30 p.m. on Sept 25, 2016, after parting from a friend. When she did not show up for work the next day, her boss contacted her parents in Fukuoka Prefecture. The woman’s parents tried unsuccessfully to contact her and reported their daughter missing on the night of Sept 26.

On Tuesday, police and Gojobori’s father handed out leaflets to passersby in the vicinity of the apartment where she lived, Kyodo News reported.

Gojobori is 149 cms tall, of slim build and had shoulder-length black hair at the time of her disappearance.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Oita police at 097-527-2131.

@ William Blake, not solving the problem doesn't mean the police is unable to investigate murders effectively, by asking the public, is also a means of investigating and hoping that someone saw something and will come forward. From what I am reading the investigation is still underway with the asking of the public's help. Can you offer any clues!! Watson?
