Police from the Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command are continuing to appeal for public assistance to help them find a woman missing from Grafton.

Mrs Sharon Edwards, aged 55, was last seen in Grafton between 10pm and 11pm on Saturday 14 March 2015.

As well as being a mother and grandmother, Mrs Edwards is a dedicated teacher at a local school and was due to teach classes on Monday 16 March but failed to attend. It is now more than three weeks since she was last seen.

Police and family hold grave concerns for her welfare as it is extremely out of character; she has no known medical conditions and has not made contact with relatives.

Strike Force Burrow was formed by the Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command to investigate Mrs Edwards’ disappearance and officers are pleased with the response from the public to date.

Police say a number of investigations have been undertaken as a result of the public’s responses so far but they have so far yet to find a trace of Mrs Ewards.

Inquiries into Mrs Edwards’ disappearance are continuing, however, and police continue to encourage anyone with information that may assist to contact Crime Stoppers.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
