Police investigating the disappearance of Sydney girl Kiesha Abrahams say they have conducted a “financial profile” of the six-year-old’s family.
But representatives of Strike Force Jarocin have refused to confirm whether Kiesha’s mother, Kristi Abrahams, and stepfather, Robert Smith, received a series of cash payments ranging between $500 and $600 in the weeks before she disappeared, as reported by News Ltd.
“A financial profile has been conducted by police as part of standard procedures,” a spokesperson said.
“Such details are not able to be released as investigations are ongoing.
“Detectives continue to follow all lines of inquiry and investigations into the disappearance of Kiesha Abrahams.
“No further comment is available at this time.”
Kiesha was reported missing from her western Sydney home on the morning of Sunday, August 1.
Ms Abrahams said she last saw Kiesha the night before, when she tucked her daughter into bed.
The report today claims the cash payments were made into Ms Abrahams’s and Mr Smith’s accounts at regular intervals leading up to that date.
Thousands of potential leads have been investigated by police, buoyed by a groundswell of local community support, but detectives have admitted hopes of finding the little girl alive are slim.
