The question that has stumped Marion Barter's family and friends for decades is now before NSW State Coroner Teresa O'Sullivan, who on Monday opened an inquest into the former Sydney and Gold Coast teacher's disappearance.

Ms Barter has not been confirmed as being seen since departing Australia for England on June 22, 1997.

But her relatives and police now know she'd already changed her name by deed poll to Florabella Natalia Marion Remakel and would soon slip back into Australia.

'Worrying' STEM teacher shortage with pressure felt in rural and remote schools

  'Worrying' STEM teacher shortage with pressure felt in rural and remote schools Secondary school teachers are teaching subjects outside of their expertise as a STEM teacher shortage persists and principals struggle to fill maths, science, technology and English teacher vacancies, new survey results reveal.The union's State of Our Schools 2020 national survey garnered responses from a small sample including 9,733 teachers, 1,787 support staff and 787 principals.

Louisiana authorities have found a car belonging to missing teacher Terrilynn Monette, Slidell police said. A body was found inside.

Authorities in Maine have confirmed that the remains of a woman found are those of Kristin Westra, a teacher who had been missing for almost a week.

The coroner was told Sally Leydon reported her mother missing in October 1997, noting the possibility Ms Barton was back in the country.

But police did little for 10 years, having marked Ms Leydon's report "occurrence only" and "no further action required" in the first 36 hours, the current lead detective said.

"(The narrative) is very, very scant in detail," Detective Senior Constable Gary Sheehan said.

No detailed statement was taken from Ms Leydon and no picture of Ms Barter was put on file.

The detective said it was unclear why the case was an "occurrence only", describing it as an "inappropriate" categorisation.

"A portion of the narrative was confusing, relating to ... Marion (being) possibly prone to having not contacted family for periods of time," Det Sen Const Sheehan said.

Missing California woman's husband contests gun violence restraining order, claims he was detained 'illegally'

  Missing California woman's husband contests gun violence restraining order, claims he was detained 'illegally' The husband of missing California woman Maya Millete is contesting a gun violence restraining order (GVRO) that was filed against him last month, claiming that his guns were seized illegally by police. Larry Millete also wrote that he was "detained illegally" by Chula Vista police officers during a May 7 search of his home, according to an 80-page response to the GVRO that was filed Monday and obtained by CBS8. "Chula Vista police pulled me over on the 5 freeway in San Diego jurisdiction," Millete wrote in the court filing.

Pelham Police Department. Authorities in Alabama say they have found a 13-year-old girl, who disappeared on her way to school. Amberly Nicole Flores left her home in Pelham, Alabama, on Tuesday morning to walk to the school bus stop. Police say surveillance video shows 13-year-old Amberly Nicole Flores "willingly" get into a dark Mercedes SUV in Pelham, Alabama, on Jan. 21, 2020. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency on Wednesday issued an emergency missing child alert for Amberly.

Police will often seize and analyze phones for evidence of things such as indecent photos and videos, what calls were placed when and to whom, browser history, calendar events and explanations of a suicide or murder. All of that can be uncovered whether or not a user deleted it from their phone. "It makes it much, much harder, but wiping a phone doesn't always mean you can't get the data," said Courtney Lancaster, forensic analyst with secure communications solutions company TeleCommunication Systems (TSYS), at the CTIA wireless industry trade show in Las Vegas.

"That being the case, I formed the opinion later on, it should have been a missing person report."

When he picked up the case in 2009, it became "obvious" to him police hadn't the large amount of information Ms Leydon had.

But his investigations have been hampered by destroyed records, unanswered inquiries and foggy memories.

Before going to Byron Bay police in 1997, Ms Leydon was told by a Commonwealth Bank employee a series of $5000 withdrawals had been made from her mother's account.

Those transactions records no longer exist, the inquest was told.

"Limited" documentary evidence following Ms Barter's return to Australia includes the August 7 cancellation of an RACQ membership and policy, which would have required a phone call or branch attendance.

An optometrist who was recorded by Medicare as consulting Ms Barter in Grafton in 1997 is also due to give evidence at the inquest.

Virginia county's latest blow-up is parental rights after Christian student placed in tiny room

  Virginia county's latest blow-up is parental rights after Christian student placed in tiny room A Loudoun County middle schooler whose family asked that he not be exposed to transgender-themed lessons that go against their faith was placed in a small room adjacent to the dean’s office during that class the next day rather than an alternate lesson, according to the parents.

Jun. 13—Longmont police were dispatched Thursday to the 800 block of Ken Pratt Boulevard on the report of a drug violation. A traffic stop on the reported vehicle was conducted. The investigation led to an arrest and various charges submitted including driving under the influence. Officers on Thursday were dispatched to the 1000 block of Ninth Avenue on the report of a missing child. Officers located the child and returned him to his parents. A Longmont resident reported a fraud Friday in the 00 block of Colgate Court.

Ms Barter, whose first of three husbands was Australian soccer legend Johnny Warren, taught at various locations including the Blue Mountains and Sussex Inlet from the 1960s.

In 1994, she accepted a role at prestigious The Southport School, moving to the Gold Coast where Sally later followed.

But Ms Barter quit midyear, sold her house at a loss, packed her belongings in an unknown storage unit and - without her family's knowledge - changed her name to the "highly unusual" Florabella Remakel, counsel assisting Adam Casselden SC said.

"The reasons behind that (name change) are intrinsically connected with the mysterious circumstances of her disappearance," he said in his opening address.

Just before leaving Australia, Ms Barter was spotted late one night in May 1997 at a petrol station. The man seen in the passenger seat of her car has never been identified.

The coroner will be asked to rule on whether she is still alive, and if not, how she died.

Mr Casselden said the investigation was "very much ... ongoing".

"If any member of the public has any information ... I strongly encourage you to come forward," he said.

The inquest is due to run until Friday in Sydney, before a week of hearings in Ballina and Byron Bay.
