On 60 Minutes, a special investigation into the abduction of two teenage girls 17 years ago. Vanessa Conlan and Jessica Small were only 15 when they were taken from the main street of Bathurst, west of Sydney. Subscribe here: http://9Soci.al/chmP50wA97J Full Episodes here http://9Soci.al/sImy50wNiXL The girls were driven out of town by an unknown man, until he stopped and they ran for their lives. Vanessa managed to escape, but Jessica hasn't been seen since. For years, local police did next to nothing about the girls' abduction and Jessica's suspected murder. But nearly two decades on, this cold case is finally cracking. 60 Minutes speaks to the key witness who saw Jessica’s final struggle, the person who found crucial evidence eight months later, and tracks down the man who may know where Jessica is. At the middle of it all, is a heartbroken mother, a distraught best friend and one dogged detective.
