Siriyakorn “Bung” Siriboon, was last seen on Thursday 2 June 2011 at approximately 8.25am. Siriyakorn left her family home in Elsie Street, Boronia to walk to school. She was dressed in her school uniform and was also wearing her dark blue zip-front school jacket and carrying a backpack.

She was seen by a neighbour a short time later in Elsie Street, walking towards Albert Avenue. She did not arrive at school that day and failed to return home. Siriyakorn has not been seen or heard from since.

Her disappearance is out of character, there are grave concerns for her welfare.

If you have information that may assist police to locate Siriyakorn please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.




On the morning of June 2, 2011, Siriyakorn Siriboon - known as Bung to her family and friends - left her east Melbourne home to make the 10-minute walk to her school.

But as the teacher called the roll that morning, Bung was absent. The teachers presumed Bung was sick.

By about 4pm, Bung's parents began to wonder where their daughter was.

Soon after, their phone rang. It was Bung's friend Dyamai, wanting to tell her about something that was planned for school the next day.

This was how Bung's parents learned that she had not made it to class.

It has now been eight years that Bung has been missing. The police door-knocked more than 1000 doors to try and determine what had happened to the young teen, but in 2013 the investigative team on Bung's disappearance was shut down.

There remains a $1 million reward for information leading to the conviction for Bung's disappearance.

Taylor and Bung always walked to school together. The one day they didn't, Bung disappeared.

Each morning, 13-year-old Bung Siriboon would make the short 10 minute walk from her east Melbourne home to school.

On the way she’d meet up with her friends, but on the morning of June 2, 2011, Bung walked alone.

At school, Bung’s friends listened as her name was called. Eight years on, they still remember the deafening silence as she wasn’t there to answer back.

Bung, whose real name was Siriyakorn but was known by everyone as her nickname, never made it to class.

Bung had always been an enthusiastic, diligent student so her teachers assumed she was sick. Her mother and step father had said goodbye to her about 8.30am and had no reason to believe she wasn’t at school.

After school, Bung was always home on time. About 3.40pm.

According to an SBS investigation, At 4pm, Bung’s mother Vannida wondered out loud where her daughter was.

Then the phone rang.

Bung’s stepdad Fred Pattison answered to hear Bung’s friend Dyamai on the other end. She wanted to tell Bung about something that was planned for school tomorrow.

This was how Bung's parents learned that she had not made it to class.

"That's when the penny dropped," Fred told A Current Affair. "That's when we started to panic."

For eight years, Bung has been missing. The police door-knocked more than 1000 doors to try and determine what had happened to the young teen, but in 2013 the taskforce set up to investigate Bung's disappearance was shut down as its leads dried up.

Speaking to A Current Affair, Bung's friends spoke of the pain of not knowing what had happened to her.

Close friend Taylor said she struggled with her decision not to walk with Bung to school on the morning on June 2.

"I remember it clear as day, walking with my brother and he asked if I wanted to [walk with Bung] and I don't know why, but I said no.

"I really regret it that I didn't walk with her that day, that was something that is really hard to live with."
