Ms Yu was talking to be mother in China when the internet dropped out, police sources said.

When her mother was unable to get in touch with her, she raised the alarm.

The next morning her friends found her room empty and reported her missing.

Her 19-year-old housemate was charged with her murder four days later, and police believed her body may have been dumped in bushland in the Berowra area in the city's north.

Detectives believed Ms Yu's white 2016 Toyota Corolla, which was found dumped in the Burwood just a short drive away from her home, would provide crucial clues in finding her.
