Search for missing woman suspended

The large-scale search for a missing 73 year-old-woman near Brooms Head, was suspended on Saturday afternoon.

Anne-Marie Jeffery was reported missing on Tuesday 25 August 2020 and was last seen at around 9am at the campground in Lake Arragan, just north of Brooms Head.

The search was led by a Police Rescue search coordinator with the assistance of SES, RFS, National Parks, Water Police and Dog Squad.

Grafton Police Station Officer in Charge, Chief Inspector Joanne Reid said that the official search was suspended on Saturday afternoon.

“The Missing Person investigation will continue as police pursue other avenues of enquiry starting with a follow up of campers that were at Lake Arragan when she went missing,” Chief Inspector Reid said.

“A further search may be undertaken in the future as the investigation moves forward.

“It was frustrating and difficult to leave (on Saturday) without having answers for the family, but police will do everything possible to find out what happened to Annemarie.

“Any piece of information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could help so we encourage people to pass that information on through your local station or Crime stoppers,” she said.
