CASE PROFILE – Hazel Pope and Joyce Eastwood

Posted on 10/10/2022

On 8 October 1970, Hazel POPE picked up her work colleague Joyce EASTWOOD from home, along with her two sons, to attend their workplace (Noarlunga Meatworks).

The boys were dropped off at the gate whilst Hazel parked the car. There was a security guard on duty at the gate and he stated that the women arrived at the meatworks between 7am – 8am where they unloaded two suitcases and were almost immediately both collected by a male taxi driver and drove off, leaving the car (a mini minor) in the car park.

It is believed that the women both handed in the resignations about a week prior to leaving.

No contact has ever been received from any members of the families.

Hazel POPE was born in 1936 and would now be 86 years old. At the time she went missing she was 164cm tall, medium build, blue eyes and she had short blonde hair.

Joyce EASTWOOD was born in 1935 and she would now be 87 years old. She was 166cm tall.
