British tourist Celena Bridge, who was holidaying in Australia, was last seen on July 16, 1998 on the Booloumba Creek Road, Connondale.
On August 10, 1998, Celena was reported missing by her fiance.

Her bank account was last accessed in Brisbane on July 13, 1998.
Foul play is suspected. A keen bushwalker and environmentalist, she was on a three-month tour of Australia studying birds and eco-systems.
