Three Australian children who disappeared from Glenelg Beach, South Australia on 26 January 1966 (Australia Day) in a suspected abduction and murder.

Police investigations revealed that, on the day of their disappearance, several witnesses had seen the children on and near Glenelg Beach in the company of a tall blond and thin-faced man. Confirmed sightings of the three children occurred at the Colley Reserve and at Wenzel’s Cake shop on Moseley Street, Glenelg. Despite numerous searches, neither the children nor their suspected companion were located.

Νot one, not two, but three children mysteriously disappeared on the beachside of Glenelg

The case attracted widespread police and media attention in Australia and across the globe, quickly attracting numerous suspects, hoaxes and theories. The regular and widespread attention given to the case, its significance in Australian criminal history and the fact that the mystery of their disappearance has never been explained, has led to the story being of continuous public interest.

New leads and clues are regularly reported on and the case still regularly headlines print and broadcast media more than half a century on. As of 2018, an A$1 million reward was offered for information related to the cold case by the South Australian Government.
