The TV star’s getaway is ruined when her beloved $50,000 MG is stolen and FIRE BOMBED in a tribal village

A TV star and celebrity style icon ruined her beach vacation when thieves stole her car keys, returned to her resort at 3am to steal her beloved $50,000 MG electric sedan, then dumped her at a local Indigenous Village firebombed and dumped.

Melissa Hoyer’s long-awaited holiday break began in the New Year when she packed her belongings and dog Scout into her fancy 15-month-old MG HS EV for the eight-plus hour drive to Yamba Beach in north NSW.

Hoyer, a lifestyle and news presenter on TV, radio and online, was looking forward to a short break before returning to Sydney to celebrate her son Connor’s 21st birthday.

The popular personality has spent years on the racetrack, working with celebrities like Kylie Minogue, sports stars like Shane Warne, Roger Federer and Ian Thorpe, on radio shows like Ben Fordham’s and as a style and taste judge alongside like-minded designers Akira Isogawa and chef Curtis Stone.

Upon arriving at Yamba, the commenter posted photos of a friend’s birthday drinks sipping champagne on a balcony, with Yamba’s main beach and surfing in the immediate background.

Hoyer posted another picture of the waves with the caption, “Room with a view. Loved this place so much last January, booked it as soon as I last left’, taken from The Surf, Yamba’s luxurious ‘free thinking’ resort hotel with pool, covered parking and sun deck with panoramic views.

Hoyer enjoyed a few carefree days at the beach before her car keys were stolen on January 6th and she arranged for her spare key to be expedited to Yamba.

The thieves returned at 3 a.m. on January 7 and stole the car with what Hoyer later wrote, “everything that was caught on CCTV.

“And took my little 15 month old MG and burned it and left it outside the indigenous Ngaru village. Whoever they are – what complete and utter idiots.

“The crime waves in so many regional areas across the country are overwhelming and having had two police interrogations they seem to have resigned themselves to the fact that this has become the norm.

“So what was to be my last day here before heading back for my son’s 21st was a day of insurance claims, finding a rental car and police interviews. woohoo!’

However, Hoyer admonished her resort, writing, “With a spate of robberies wouldn’t a boom gate or secure garage door @thesurfyamba go astray?”

Melissa Hoyer gushed about the resort, but after her traumatic experience, she berated the luxury hotel, saying on Instagram that after “a spate of robberies, a boom gate or secure garage door @thesurfyamba wouldn’t go astray ??”

Hoyer received a call from the Yamba Police Department at 5:30 am on January 7, telling him that “my car was burned to the bone in front of the Ngaru Village Mission.”

Ngaru Village, also known as the Birrigan Gargle Local Aboriginal Land Council, is adjacent to 1 mile of Pippi Beach on traditional Aboriginal land sites and is a four minute drive from The Surf Hotel.

It has a history of crime, drug and alcohol problems due to unemployment, transportation and housing problems.

A 2012 ABC television report described the difference between Yamba’s “beach road lined with luxury vacation rentals” and the village houses with broken windows and graffiti-covered walls on a potholed road.

When Hoyer was briefed on the fate of her car, she wrote on Instagram: “Happy Holidays how much more ‘resilience’ can this girl muster?

“I thought this brief hiatus was going to cost the shit of the last few damn years, but adversity is supposed to make you strong.

“It’s funny, I had a huge yell beforehand, not because of the actual car (which I loved, but it’s just a ‘thing’) – more because of the fact that it’s a totally unnecessary and scary injury to you and the stuff is that you saved for.

“And I know everyone who’s been burgled, robbed or something like that (me too!), you’ll know exactly what I mean.”

While Hoyer organized a rental car to return to Sydney for the 21st

Hoyer replied: “Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out – very fortunate to have a really beautiful community alive and here on this crazy platform.

“I’ll be returning home, not exactly in holiday splendour, but I’d still come back. . . Nothing will hold me down.’

NSW Police confirmed they “attended a vehicle fire” on 7 January at Rocky Laurie Drive, Yamba, over which “MG (that) was stolen from a Yamba address.

“No people have been arrested/charged. Investigations are ongoing.’
