Grave concerns for missing Melbourne mother
Police in Melbourne are desperately searching for a man they believe will be able to provide information on the whereabouts of missing Melbourne woman Ju Zhang.
Ms Zhang, also known as Kelly, was last seen at her home on Winchester Avenue, Epping about 5.30pm on Monday, February 1.
The 33-year-old mother was wearing a pink pyjama top, shorts and no shoes.
Police were told she had no personal belongings with her except for her mobile phone.
Police say Ms Zhang’s mobile phone appears to still be in the vicinity of Winchester Avenue but they have been unable to locate it.
She was reported missing by a friend on Tuesday, February 2.
Police are concerned for Ms Zhang’s welfare as she left her eight-year-old son alone and her disappearance is extremely out of character.
“Kelly is a very loving mother to her son and would not leave him under any circumstances,” Victoria Police Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper said.
“Kelly was in a relationship with a man by the name of Sam (Joon) Tan.
“We last spoke with him on Thursday, but have not been able to get in touch with him again since then.”
Ms Zhang’s son is currently in the care of her ex-husband’s family.
Mr Tan told police he last saw Ms Zhang on Monday night when he says she told him she was going for a walk.
Detectives would like to speak with the Doncaster man, who they believe will be able to help them in finding out what happened to Ms Zhang.
The 35-year-old may have travelled interstate and is believed to be travelling in a black 2008 Mazda CX9 station wagon with registration WKE 850.
Police are asking for Mr Tan to come forward and if anyone sees him, they are urged to call Triple Zero immediately.
