Circumstances of Disappearance
At about 18.00 on Saturday, 25 April 1998, Rachel's mother drove Rachel to the "Summer Garden" Cinema at the corner of Beach Avenue and Murroona Street, Queens Beach.
As the movie did not commence until 19.00, Rachel intended to walk down to the 'stinger nets' at the end of Beach Avenue, some 200 meters from the Cinema.
She was seen leaving the beach by a number of persons at 18.45. She was seen walking on Queens Beach Esplanade shortly after, but has not been seen since.

Foul play is suspected.
A man was found guilty of Antonio's manslaughter in 2000 but was acquitted on appeal in 2001.
