Concerns raised as Irish woman disappears in Australia

Police in Melbourne, Australia, have expressed concern following the disappearance of an Irish woman.

Jill Meagher was last seen leaving a bar in the Brunswick area of Melbourne at around 1.30am on Saturday morning.

Officers were told the 29-year-old woman left the venue with the intention of walking home.

Police are concerned that the disappearance is out of character, and investigators are in the process of determining whether the circumstances are suspicious.

Jill's husband Thomas spoke to Channel Nine news in Australia: "She was with her friends there and the last person to see her got in a cab. She was going to walk home and hasn't been seen is.

"I just don't know where she is. I would love to know what happened."
