Investigators are urging the person, who contacted Crime Stoppers on Thursday morning, to call back and provide further information or make contact with detectives.

Ju was last seen at her home on Winchester Avenue in Epping about 5.30pm on February 1.

At the time the 33-year-old went missing, she was believed to be wearing a pink nightgown and possibly pink slippers.

Her boyfriend Joon Seong Tan, 35, of Doncaster, faced court via video link from custody last Friday after he was charged with her murder.

The investigation remains ongoing.

Anyone with information about Ju’s disappearance is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential online report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
