Sergeant Ryan Hanlon of Bribe Island Police said, "We are seeking public assistance to help locate Ms Wallace."

"We'd also like to ask any motorists with in-car cameras who were driving along Sunderland Drive between 3-5pm yesterday to check the footage as it may have inadvertently captured images of Ms Wallace."

"We're asking local residents in the area of Banksia Beach and Pacific Harbour to just check their backyards.

"Ms Wallace left Bongaree in a confused state and may not know where she is." Sergeant Hanlon said.

Anyone that may have seen Ms Wallace is asked to contact Crime Stoppers or Policelink.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
