Natasha Anne Ryan (born 1984) is an Australian woman from Rockhampton, Queensland who went missing on 31 August 1998 when aged 14. Police had wrongly assumed that her best friend, Maioha Tokotaua, who was 15 years-old at the time of her disappearance, killed Ryan but they later accused the local serial killer Leonard Fraser.
Ryan, however, was discovered alive in 2003 at her boyfriend’s house hiding in a wardrobe, almost five years after she went missing, during the trial of the man accused of her murder. It was discovered that 14 year old Ryan had left home willingly to be with her older boyfriend, Scott Black, a 22 year old milkman, living in hiding in his home for years. In 2008, they married and reportedly the two have three children.
