It was thought she left her Avondale Heights home following a discussion with her husband Borce about the financial situation of her business Bella Blue Boutique.

The Herald Sun says Borce wants everyone to understand that his wife Karen hasn’t done a runner on the basis of  their finances.

He’s dismissed claims by his son, confessed ice user Anthony Rickard, that he planned to leave his wife.

Borce says he is not going to speculate on what has happened to her.
