A man has been charged with the murder of a nurse in northern Sydney more than 30 years ago.

Mary Louise Wallace, 33, disappeared in the early hours of 24 September, 1983.

She was on a night out with friends at the Alpine Inn Hotel in Crows Nest where she met a man who later offered her a lift.

Despite a search of the Lane Cove National Park, her body has never been found.

The ABC reports a man, 61, was arrested at Gladesville in north-west Sydney on Friday morning. He was to appear at Parramatta Court later in the day.
