Western Australian teenager Hayley Dodd (pictured) disappeared almost 20 years ago

Almost 20 years after the disappearance of her daughter, Hayley Dodd's family returned to the place where they last saw her alive.

They were there to dig.

Three corpse dogs and even a psychic were certain that the human remains were buried under the red dirt road outside the town of Badgingarra, about 200 km north of Perth.

They were looking for some sign that Hayley's body had been there: her glasses, a piece of shirt, a bone. They dug for hours in the afternoon sun, but found no trace of her.

Hayley was only 17 when she disappeared around noon on July 29, 1999, while hitchhiking to a friend's farm, where she was going to work to help pay for her travels in Australia.

In January of this year, almost 20 years after her disappearance, a Supreme Court judge ruled that Hayley had been murdered the same day she disappeared by Francis John Wark.

Although her killer is now behind bars for a minimum of 21 years, her body has never been found.

Since her disappearance, Hayley's parents, Margaret and Raymond, have spent about $ 70,000 in credit cards in search of their remains.

A car to travel back to Hayley for the last time, the accommodation and services of a Queensland dog are among the long list of items they have bought while trying to find the body of their daughter.

"My daughter had a garage sale to raise $ 2,000 for a corpse dog, and even my grandchildren sold their things," Mrs. Dodd told nine.com.au.

Ms. Dodd is sincere about the harrowing experience her family, originally from Lancaster in the United Kingdom, has lived since mid-1999. The loss of Hayley has dominated their lives.

"Since Hayley disappeared, we had four grandchildren, now we have 15 grandchildren and three great grandchildren, that's all Hayley has missed."

They were a close family. Hayley, her parents and five brothers moved from the United Kingdom to Australia in 1990, where shortly after her parents bought a house in Mandurah, south of Perth.

She lived with them until she moved in with a friend at a local caravan park. It is this same friend with whom he planned to travel through Australia and who was one of the last people to see her alive.

Hayley, 17, was last seen walking on a road near the rural area of ​​Badgingarra, where Wark had lived for 15 years, on July 29, 1999.

"Hayley was happy, excited, wanting him," Lisa Frederickson, Hayley's close friend, told the Supreme Court later.

"She told me she would come back," an emotional Mrs. Frederickson said she gave Ms. Dodd a pocket knife to protect herself, and "a kiss and a hug" before the teenager hitchhiked to the farm.

Hayley was picked up by a truck driver who left her at a service station and other motorists saw her walking down North West Road. The last time they saw her was around 11:45 am.

Wark was a 43-year-old elementary school gardener and had lived in the area for 20 years when he lured the teen to the borrowed Ute he was driving and murdered her before disposing of the body.

It would be 18 years before he was sentenced for the murder of teenagers.

"It still makes me angry to have to wait all this time to bring justice to the family," said former Detective Sergeant Major Edward Rowe, chief detective of the case to The West earlier this year.

Hayley's case was crucially degraded from a murder case to the investigation of a missing person after his disappearance, which took away the power of Det Sgt Rowe and his team to properly explore the evidence.

In 2013, Warner & # 39; s Ute found an earring that belonged to Hayley, but Rowe believes that he and his team could have discovered it a week after she disappeared when her car was confiscated for the first time.

"When (the research team in 2013) told me they had found the earring, you could have hit me with a pen," he said.

"If we had the earring at that moment, he would have told me right away that he was in that Ute and that would have told us that we now have a red-hot suspect."

The police first listed Hayley as a missing person, even though she was in regular contact with her family.

Ute de Wark, where not only was the ring of the ear found, but one of his hair was found later, it was confiscated by the police, but it was not searched for years.

Hayley's case could have been solved in 1999 if these mistakes had not been made, but now the family simply wants to know where it is.

– If he wanted to do this or not, but he has intentionally denied Hayley's location. Make peace with yourself, tell us where it is.
