Grandmother arrested and charged with murder of her son who went missing 50 years ago

A Brisbane grandmother has been charged with the murder of her autistic son who disappeared almost half a century ago.

Maureen Anne Enright was arrested after police received new information in August about Peter John Enright’s disappearance.
Peter was born on 17 June 1965 and is one of eleven children to Maureen and Michael Enright.
He was never reported missing, but detectives believe he disappeared between 1968 and 69, making him three to four years of age at the time.
A crime scene has been established at the Inala home where the family moved to in 1966.
Homicide Detective Inspector Damien Hansen said forensic officers and bone experts are using a a ground penetrating radar at the property.
“We are searching for remains,” he said.
“We are optimistic at this stage but that will be dependent on a lot of environmental factors”.
The Child Trauma Unit and the Inala Child Protection Unit are assisting with the investigation.
Police are appealing for anyone who has lived in Polaris Street in Inala in the 1960s or 70s who knew the family or Peter to come forward.
The 76-year-old grandmother appeared briefly before Richlands Magistrates Court this morning.  Global247News Twitter
