WITH the eight-year anniversary approaching of the disappearance and suspected homicide of 32-year-old Beechmont woman Tina Greer, police are renewing their appeal for public information.

Police minister Mark Ryan has approved a reward of $250,000 for information which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the person/s responsible for Ms Greer's death.

Police are also urging the man who telephoned Homicide detectives in Brisbane in mid-2014 to re-establish contact, which can be via Crime Stoppers, as his information could be vital to the investigation.

A press conference today in Brisbane saw Ms Greer's daughter Lily plead for help in finding her mother.

"My name is Lily Greer, the last time I saw my mum... I was 13 years old," she said.

"Words cannot describe how much I loved my mother.

"I'm haunted daily by the unknown. Not a day passes when I do not think of her.

"I miss her more than ever.The hole that has been left in my heart... is unimaginable."

The young woman said the experience had been "numbing and surreal".

"It is believed my mum was murdered.

"If anyone has any information regarding my mum's disappearance I beg you to please come forward.

"I just want to find my mum... I just need closure."



Ms Greer was last seen by family at a Beechmont Road residence around 2pm on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 intending to travel to Clumber.

She was driving a 2003 maroon Holden Commodore sedan with Queensland registration 067-MDE.

Ms Greer's car was found at the end of a dirt road, near Governor's Chair Lookout, Spicers Gap Road, Clumber on January 21, 2012.

Extensive investigations under the code name Operation Kilo Footwork incorporating investigators from the Ipswich District and the Homicide Investigation Group have been conducted in the years since ms Greer disappeared.

This included an extensive search of Lake Moogerah and surrounding bushland in February 2012.

In March 2012 searches were conducted in the Aratula and Clumber areas.

Additional searches of these areas were conducted in April that year.

Areas searched included remote sections of the national park as well as extremely steep and rugged terrain with dense vegetation.

Detective Inspector David Briese, Ipswich Crime Services said police were determined to establish what happened to Ms Greer and find her remains.

"I am confident someone out there knows what happened to Tina and they hold an important piece of the puzzle.

"I urge them to come forward, to make the right decision for Tina and her family.

"Tina's family deserve answers and we're committed to finding Tina's remains and bringing her home."

Inspector Briese said as well as the reward money, indemnity was also on offer for anyone who may have been an accomplice but not had direct involvement with her murder.
