NSW Police say they have located the body of a woman who was reported missing in floodwaters earlier this week.

At about 9.50pm on Tuesday (March 29), officers from Richmond Police District commenced an investigation into the whereabouts of a 55-year-old woman who was reported missing in floodwaters at Monaltrie, approximately 5km south of Lismore.

Officers were informed that the woman had left Tullera (approximately 10km north of Lismore) on the same day and failed to arrive at her intended destination.

Following information from a member of the public, the body a woman was located in floodwaters near the intersection of Alexandra Parade and Tweed Street, North Lismore shortly before 7pm yesterday (Thursday, March 31).

The body is yet to be formally identified but is believed to be that of the missing woman.

An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death is underway and a report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

The 2017 white Holden Captiva, with NSW registration YHS 51F, that the woman was travelling in has not yet been located.

  1. As a local girl this report is incorrect . Tullera is approximately 9 kms from lismore and when travelling to lismore from tullera you must pass through North lismore where unfortunately this poor lady’s car and body were found . Wyrallah Road at Monaltrie is on the other side of Lismore and is nowhere near the way this lady would have taken to get to Lismore ..
