Posted November 15, 2018 08:30:17A KTM adventure club has been shut down by the Victorian Police after an investigation revealed there was no evidence to link it to the disappearance of two women from the club in 2016.
Key points:A Kymtum 390 adventure is believed to have disappeared from the KTM-brand KTM Adventure range in 2016Police believe the group was formed in 2011 to help former club members cope with life after the tragic death of former club member Rebecca SorensenThe women were found in Kymtaan Park, East Ryde, in March 2016Two women who were believed to be former members of the Kymtm 390 Adventure club have been found dead.
A second woman, believed to belong to the same group, has been arrested.
Both women are believed to go by the names Rebecca Soret, 26, and Rebecca Sosie, 27.
Both were last seen in Melbourne’s north-east in late March 2016.
Detectives have searched the park where the women were last spotted and found no evidence of a fight.
Detective Inspector Mike Stokes said the women had been in the park for about two weeks and were not seen on any of the day’s patrols.
“There was no indication that any of them had had any trouble with anyone or been violent with anyone,” he said.
“We are now appealing to anyone who has any information on this missing women’s whereabouts to contact Detective Sergeant Tom Fong at Gold Coast Police Station on 131 444.”
He said he would not speculate on the circumstances of the women’s deaths.
Police said there had been no sightings of either woman since the weekend.
The KTM Experience Club has been operating since 2011, but was closed after the deaths of former members Rebecca Sorennsen and Jennifer Rottier.
Police believe both women went to the club to seek support for themselves after the death of Ms Sorentsen and Ms Rottiers, and the death in 2016 of Ms Rotsier’s friend, who died of a drug overdose.
Det Sgt Tom Fons said the investigation into the club was ongoing.
“It’s been quite a long process, and we’ve been working through some very difficult issues, but the fact that we’ve got some closure now, that we have the closure to look at the facts of this, that’s the biggest thing,” he told news.com
