Grave fears held for missing mother

Posted on 16/08/2017

A plea for information has been made about missing mother-of-two Tanja Ebert, who is suspected of having met with foul play.

Ms Ebert was last seen on 8 August when she reportedly got out of the family car at Roseworthy and walked off, leaving behind her husband, two boys aged 1 and 3, and her personal possessions – including passport, purse and phone.

An extensive search of the area has been unsuccessful and grave fears are held for her safety.

Police today released video footage of the 23-year-old with her family at the South Australian Museum about 3.20pm on Tuesday 8 August – the last independent sighting of her. The video can be viewed here

She was reported missing by a relative at about 10.30am on Thursday 11 August.

Her husband, who she met and married shortly after arriving in Australia in 2012, told police that on 8 August, as the family headed home to a country station at Mannahill, she got out of the car and walked off.

Ms Ebert is a German citizen, of Caucasian appearance, slim build, 165 to 170cm tall, blue eyes, blonde hair and speaks with a German accent.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at
