When Neil Cameron’s daughter Alyse went missing after failing to show up in Byron Bay on Monday (January 29) he took to Facebook to give a shout out to anyone who might have seen her.

The 31-year-old flew into Coolangatta from Melbourne at around 6pm on Monday night but failed to meet a commuter bus soon after.

After his post was shared around 22,000 times in a day, Mr Cameron took to Facebook again this morning to say he had ‘made contact’ via text message.

‘Neil and Janice Cameron are hopeful that today they will find their much loved daughter Alyse,’ he wrote.

‘After being taken to the depths of despair yesterday we now have hope today.

‘We want to thank everyone for their concern and love shown to our family.

‘You are all amazing human beings. We know little at this stage.’

When contacted by Echonetdaily for comment, Mr Cameron said he did not wish to say anything further.

Alyse is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 165cm tall, of slim build with blonde hair.
