This is the first installment of our summer series about mysterious crimes and disappearances from around the globe and the people who fight to get justice for victims and their families. 

Marion Barter, aged 51, boarded a plane in Australia in 1997 to embark on a trip of a lifetime and has never been seen again.  When her family went to the police they were told that Marion had been located and was safe and sound.  But it wasn't that simple.  

22 years later Marion's daughter Sally Leydon teamed up with Seven News in Australia and produced a podcast The Lady Vanishes.  After two long years of hard work, the team may finally be close to answers about what happened to Marion Barter.  Dakota Spotlight speaks with producer and host Alison Sandy to learn more about this surreal and very puzzling case om Australia.
