After days of painful waiting last week, Leanne Crewe took matters into her own hands and set out to search for her mum in the spots she thought she might visit.

"I started at Minyon Falls, travelled the coast roads and the back roads around Lismore - all the spots mum might have been," she said.

"I will get to Evans Head as soon as I can.

"I just felt like I couldn't wait; after a couple of days I felt something needs to be done."

 

Ms Crewe said her mother's disappearance was "bizarre" and out of character.

She described the search as daunting, because her mum, 54, could be anywhere.

"I'm not going to give up, but it is hard when you don't know where to start," Ms Crew said.

There have been no sightings of the Lismore Heights resident since last Tuesday, when Mrs Crewe went to the post office and bottle shop at the Rous Hotel.

She was seen leaving her home on Weemala St about 2.30pm that day.

When she failed to return home, concerned family members contacted police, who commenced searching for her.

Ms Crewe is now renewing calls for the public to help out however they can.

The police search is pinpointed on trying to find Mrs Crewe's car, a maroon Honda CRV with registration plate, CE31UY.

"If anyone has seen it, please get in contact," her daughter said.

Police are also re-appealing for public assistance.

Mrs Crewe is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 160cm tall, of slim build, with a fair complexion, blonde hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: www.nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
