The University of Melbourne has been and will continue to be in close contact with the Australian Government and Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert’s family.

We believe that the best chance of securing Kylie’s safe return is through diplomatic channels.

This is a sensitive matter and the University will not be providing further comment.
