Victorian police have set up a special taskforce in the hope of finding a Melbourne school girl who disappeared in June.

Police believe Siriyakorn Siriboon, nicknamed “Bung”, was abducted on her way to school.

Jane Buckle reports.


It’s a nightmare parents dread.

Thirteen-year-old Bung Siriboon disappeared almost five months ago and police are frustrated with a lack of leads.

They hope the formation of Taskforce Puma will prompt someone to come forward.

Fred Pattison, Bung’s stepfather: “Living and believing that she’s still alive, she’s coming home and if this helps bring her home it’s good”

Her parents believe their teenage daughter is still alive and will come home to them.

Police say they’ve received more than 500 calls since the investigation began but have no suspects.
