Police in Melbourne have released CCTV footage of missing Irish woman Jill Meagher that show her talking to a man shortly before she was last seen early on Saturday morning.

Ms Meagher (29) disappeared after socialising with work colleagues at a bar in the suburb of Brunswick, not far from her home.

The images show Ms Meagher walking north on Sydney Road at 1.41am. Six other people can also be seen walking along the road, and detectives are urging them to come forward.

“It is just a missing person [case] at the moment,” a Victorian police spokesman told The Irish Times.

“We want to speak to the people who can be seen on the CCTV footage, who were on the street at the time. We ask that these people come forward,” he said.

The police particularly want to talk to a man wearing a blue, hooded jacket or jumper who is seen talking to Ms Meagher in the footage.

The man is seen walking past the camera twice before talking to Ms Meagher.
