Police are appealing for public assistance to locate an elderly woman missing on the state’s North Coast area.

Margaret Gribble, aged 88, was last seen leaving a home on Camden Street, Ballina about 4pm yesterday (Monday 21 June 2021).

A community member reported her missing to officers from Richmond Police District who commenced inquiries into her whereabouts.

Police have been told she has not made contact with friends or family members since yesterday, which is out of character for her.

Margaret is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 167cm tall, of a thin build, with short grey hair and brown eyes.

It is believed Margaret walks with the aid of a walking frame.

Anyone who sees Magaret or knows of her whereabouts is urged to contact Ballina Police Station on 02 6681 8699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
