Tweed Heads Police have used Missing Persons Week to renew a call for information about 71-year-old Carol Anderson, who went missing on Friday November 11, 2011

Around 1.30pm that day, Mrs Anderson, who had been suffering from dementia for a number of years, walked onto Dry Dock Road, Tweed Heads

About an hour later, she was seen walking along Fraser Drive but she has not been seen since.

Mrs Anderson left her home while her husband was sleeping and was expected to return home but did not arrive.

Carol Anderson is described as of Caucasian appearance, 155cm tall, medium build, with grey/brown shoulder-length hair. At the time of her disappearance, Carol was wearing a long flowing white dress with shoestring straps.

Her disappearance is still being investigated by Tweed/Byron LAC Detectives who used the services of the NSW Police Air wing, the Marine Area Command, Rescue Squad and SES to conduct both land and water searches in an attempt to locate her.

Anyone who knows of Carol Anderson’s whereabouts or anyone who can assist with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Missing Persons Week, which is being held until Saturday August 3, recognises people who have been located, remembers those still lost, and continues efforts to raise awareness and support the community.

This year’s campaign focuses on people living with a mental illness as a key group in the community most at risk of going missing. The campaign message – See the signs before they disappear – encourages people to learn the potential warnings signs that someone they know isn’t coping and to seek help.
