Just over two weeks after anyone last saw Angie Fuller alive, family and friends received the news they had been dreading: police were now treating the case as a homicide.

The mother of two’s disappearance sparked a two-week police search of rugged Central Australian terrain while social media users speculated as to her whereabouts.

Here’s what we know so far about Ms Fuller’s disappearance.

Angie Fuller ‘enthusiastic’ about new job, dad says

Speaking to the ABC last Tuesday, Angie’s father Tony Fuller said his daughter had recently started a new job and was turning her life around in Alice Springs.

He said she had recently begun working at Drug and Alcohol Services Australia (DASA), which delivers rehabilitation services in Central Australia.

Its chief executive, Eloise Page, confirmed that Angie “is a part of the DASA family” but refused to comment further, given the ongoing investigation.

“We are very concerned for her well-being and hope that she is found safe and well soon,” she said.

Mr Fuller said she was driving back from Darwin to Alice Springs when she disappeared, saying it was clear she was enthusiastic about her new career path.

“She was working there and she was really enjoying it, and I could see she was eager and keen to get back,” he said.

Police have suspended a search

Ms Fuller was first reported missing to police on Wednesday, January 11 — two days after her last confirmed sighting — and authorities made their first public plea for help that Friday.

Efforts to find her focused on a remote area along the Tanami Road, which links Alice Springs with north-west Western Australia.
