The Hayley Dodd murder trial has been told a man driving in the Wheatbelt on the day the Mandurah teenager disappeared saw a girl in a car with her palms pressed against the window.
In a statement given to police in 2010, Bradley John Davies said he was driving to Perth when he saw a teenager walking along the side of the road but decided not to pick her up because he had already agreed to give a lift to a man whose Kombi had broken down.
He claims a short time later, he was overtaken by a white vehicle carrying the teenager who looked out the window at him.
"I believe that girl to be Hayley Dodd,” he said.
He described the vehicle as a white Toyota LandCruiser that came “flying” up behind him.
The West reports Mr Davies could not be found to give evidence in person with his statement read by prosecutor Brett Tooker in court yesterday.
Convicted rapist Francis John Wark is on trial in the Supreme Court accused of luring Hayley into an old white Holden ute and murdering her.
