A pink cardigan found in the garden of the missing home of Lynette Dawson, mother of two children, may contain crucial clues about her disappearance, an expert said.

The independent forensic scientist, Helen Roebuck, believes that the torn garment found in 1998 could shed valuable DNA if analyzed with advanced modern tests.

Mrs. Dawson's friends described the article of clothing as her favorite piece, a fact that Ms. Roeback thought was not a coincidence.

"That's really significant, because you do not find spilled garments, buried in the ground, with that kind of damage," Roebuck told The Australian The Teacher's podcasts series.

The cardigan was found by an officer next to a pool in the front yard of Mrs. Dawson's house on Gilwinga Drive in Bayview, on the beaches of North Sydney.

Mrs. Roebuck has volunteered her time to get to the bottom of the mystery of the sliced ​​cardigan, discovered 16 years after the disappearance of Mrs. Dawson.

"The techniques we are using today in the standard DNA laboratories in Australia are really incredibly sensitive," he said.

"So the fact that this element has been previously tested to detect DNA using mitochondrial systems and has failed does not mean that there is nothing there to be detected."

Mrs. Dawson was last seen at Mona Vale on the beaches of North Sydney in January 1982. Her last contact with her family was six days before her disappearance.

Two separate forensic investigations in 2001 and 2003 found that Ms. Dawson was murdered by her husband, former Newtown Jets rugby star Chris Dawson, but he was never charged and insists he is innocent.

Sports teacher Mr. Dawson was having an affair with one of his 16-year-old students, his nanny Joanne Curtis, at that time.

In the 1970s, Dawson (pictured) played for the Newtown Jets in the Rugby League of New South Wales.

When the couple separated in 1990, he urged the police to search around the house's pool.

It was in 1998, an officer found remains of Mrs. Dawson's favorite cardigan, which had been cut with a knife, but no body was discovered.

Despite numerous requests for police information, the case remains a mystery.

Mr. Dawson now lives in Noosa, Queensland with his third wife.
