Jodie McEwan from the Australian Federal Police's National Missing Persons Coordination Centre says the smallest detail can make all the different to a police investigation.
 
"Whether they think they seen somebody of that profiling who is our missing person or whether they have any information about a missing person in the time just prior to their disappearance, all of that information is very helpful to police,"Ms McEwan says.
