Jane's mother pleads for information

The mother of Jane Furlong, whose remains were found at a Port Waikato beach last month, is appealing for anyone with information to come forward. Police confirmed that remains found by a woman walking her dog at Sunset Beach were those of Ms Furlong, who went missing from Auckland’s CBD 19 years ago. Her mother Judith Furlong spoke about the grisly discovery for the first time today. She said it had been hard, despite almost 20 years passing, to hear the news. She urged anyone who knew what happened to Ms Furlong to come forward. Mrs Furlong said the family were planning a burial service for her daughter, who is survived by a son who was just months old when his mother disappeared.
