Missing person, Gold Coast

Police are seeking public assistance to locate a 39-year-old woman missing from the Gold Coast.

Police say that a random breath test in Mullumbimby has led to the seizure of cannabis and ketamine.

A police report says that at around 11pm Saturday 27 February, officers were patrolling Mullumbimby when they pulled over a Honda Civic for a random breath test.

The 23-year-old male driver complied with this test and returned a negative reading.

During the test, police noticed a small bag containing what appeared to be cannabis on the floor of the vehicle.

A subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in Police seizing; the cannabis; 13 bags of ketamine (weighing 13.42 grams); and $715 cash.

Ketamine is a drug commonly used by veterinarians to sedate animals such as horses.

Police are preparing charges for the accused to appear before Mullumbimby Local
Court in April for; Supply Prohibited Drug; Possess Prohibited Drug; Possess
Trafficable Quantity of Prohibited Drug; and possession of goods suspected of being
