There are reports the Victoria University student who hasn't been seen for weeks is alive and well and just ignoring her parents.
Police released a statement last night saying 20-year-old Caitlyn Bird hadn't been seen since May 9, and her parents had contacted police with their concern.
However, last night a post to Facebook page 'Vic Deals' suggested Ms Bird was alive and well, and only ignoring her parents who are in a different country.
Police still want to speak to her and say they can't take the word of other people.
They say Ms Bird, who is around 178cm tall, with mid-length brown hair, hazel eyes and a distinctive American accent has never been missing before.
She was last seen wearing dark jeans, a black raincoat and a heavy, brown and white checked shirt.
