Sergeant Ryan Hanlon of Bribe Island Police said, "We are seeking public assistance to help locate Ms Wallace."

"We'd also like to ask any motorists with in-car cameras who were driving along Sunderland Drive between 3-5pm yesterday to check the footage as it may have inadvertently captured images of Ms Wallace."
