NSW Police have announced a $500,000 reward for information about Katrina Bohnenkamp, who went missing seven years ago when she was 15, as the Coroner prepares to investigate what happened to the girl.

NSW Police said that Katrina disappeared on October 26, 2012, from her father's home in Strathfield, although an Australian Federal Police missing persons poster says she was last seen in Greenacre.

The Herald revealed last year that Greenacre address, since demolished, was home to a number of teenagers in the state's care.

"On 2nd November 2012, Katrina was reported missing," the officer in charge of investigating her disappearance, Inspector Christie Houldin, said on Tuesday.

"We became aware that on 25 October, 2012, Katrina left her care premises at Greenacre. Just after midnight on 25th, so early hours of 26th October 2012, Katrina was sighted at a residence in Strathfield.

"This is the last confirmed sighting of Katrina."

Since then, there have been a number of alleged sightings, Inspector Houldin said.

Eight months after she disappeared, investigators from Strike Force Delange issued a media release alerting the public to a missing child for the first time.

Inspector Houldin refused to comment on why it took police so long to alert the public, saying there had been "a number of media releases" issued about her disappearance.

She said police had pursued a "number of lines of inquiry", and hold "grave concerns" about Katrina's whereabouts.

Asked why the specialist Homicide Squad were not involved, Inspector Houldin said only that a number of squads had been involved in the investigation.

Despite an "extensive investigation", police said no trace of her has ever been found and the disappearance has been referred to the coroner.

The media conference was not attended by anybody from the former Department of Family and Community Services, now known as the Department of Communities and Justice.

A spokesperson said the department was “deeply saddened” by her disappearance but refused to comment on why Katrina’s legal parent was absent at the press conference.

”We obviously have grave concerns for Katrina's safety," Insp Houldin said.

"It's been seven long years."

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday morning, Katrina's half sister Jaide Simpson said her family had been in "emotional limbo" since she disappeared, and were desperate for answers about the "fun" and "hyperactive" teen."

"She just wanted to have the best life, she had goals and things she wanted to do and plans.

"For her to just disappear after so many in-depth conversations with her about her next steps, it just doesn't fit."

The Coroner will begin an inquest into what happened to Katrina next Wednesday.
