On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

Police are appealing for public assistance to locate Bo Whitton, 32 years old, from the Mullumbimby area.

Bo is described as being Caucasian, female, thin build, long brown hair, blue eyes, large rectangle tattoo on her inner left forearm, star tattoo on left hand.

Bo was last seen in Tweed Heads on 19 December 2018. Bo is well known to the local community having lived in the area and known to frequent Nimbin and Byron Bay.

Police and her family are concerned for her welfare.

Anyone who has information about Bo’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 immediately.
