What we know:

A large-scale search is underway for a woman missing from a campground on the state’s north coast.

Anne-marie Jeffery, aged 73, was last seen at the campground in Lake Arragan, just north of Brooms Head, about 9am (Tuesday 25 August 2020).

Serious concerns are held for her welfare as she failed to return to her campsite and her family has not been able to locate her.

Officers from Coffs Clarence Police District – along with the SES, National Parks and Wildlife (NPWS), and the Westpac helicopter – are conducting a large search of the area, including surrounding bushland.

Anne-marie is described as being of Caucasian appearance, with a slim build and grey hair. She was wearing a red and pink top, woollen leggings (seen in image), red shoes, and a beanie.

Anyone who sees her is urged to contact police.
