Police hold serious concerns for the welfare of a woman who has gone missing while camping in the Border Ranges National Park, near Wiangaree, at the weekend.

Judith Williams, 53, arrived in the national park with her husband on Friday, 18 October and was last seen about 3am on Saturday morning when she went to use the toilet within the campsite.

Richmond Local Area Command police say that by 5am Mrs Williams had failed to return, and her husband and other campers in the area began a search and called police.

An extensive search around the area has been conducted over the past two days involving police, State Emergency Services volunteers and National Parks and Wildlife rangers, to no avail.

Mrs Williams suffers from medical conditions and needs to take regular medication.

Her family have told police she has difficulty walking, and walks with a distinct shuffling action.

She 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 boots.

Police are urging any member of the public who may have any information to contact Lismore Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
