Police call for help finding woman lost in Border Ranges
A WOMAN who disappeared while camping in the Border Ranges more than a week ago despite intensive efforts to find her, police have said.
Police have today renewed a call for the community to help track down Judith Williams, 53, by reporting any information they might have about her.
Mrs Williams arrived at the Border Ranges National Park, near Wiangaree, with her husband on Friday, October 18, and disappeared 3am on Saturday morning, October 19, when she went to use the toilet at the campsite,
Mrs Williams' husband and other campers called police and began searching for the woman about 5am and the search has steadily escalated since then.
Over the past two days that search has included police officers, State Emergency Services volunteers, and National Parks and Wildlife Officers all combing the bushland in the national park, but without success.
Police say Ms Williams suffers from medical conditions and needs to take regular medication and that they have "serious concerns" for her welfare.
Her family have told police she has difficulty walking, and walks with a distinct shuffling action.
Mrs Williams is described as being of Caucasian appearance, between 140 and 150cm tall, with a solid build, and greying brown hair.
She was last seen wearing long white pants, a cardigan believed to be blue in colour, and a pair of Blundstone boots.
Anyone with any information relating to Mrs Williams should phone Lismore Police on 02 6626 0599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
