Police hold grave fears for a woman who went missing from Tweed Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning this week.

The 49-year-old woman, Elizabeth Blake, was last seen around 3.40am on Tuesday leaving the hospital on Powell Street. No contact has been made with her since.

In the past few days police have searched around the Tweed River foreshore area near the hospital grounds.

Ms Blake is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 178cm tall and of slim build. She has pink-coloured hair and was last seen wearing a multicoloured jumper, black track pants with white stripes down the side and pink slippers.

Her family and police hold serious concerns for her welfare due to a medical condition that requires daily medication.

Anyone with information about Ms Blake’s whereabouts is asked to contact Tweed Heads Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
