The distraught family of a missing local woman believe she has been to her home in Broken Hill, but hasn’t been heard from or seen since.
The Grubb family is asking all locals to keep an eye out anywhere for their missing mother Marilyn Anne Grubb.
The 65-year-old has not been seen since she left a station property near Broken Hill on Sunday.
Her daughter Beth Ashton said they believed she had been to her home in Morgan Lane, but don’t know where she went from there.
“She left the property saying she was going to call me. She has been to the Broken Hill house as she left her thongs there. Then just nothing,” Beth said yesterday.
“We are all so stressed and worried about her, my brother has come from Sydney, my sister from Dubbo.
“They are just driving anywhere to look for her.”
Originally, the family thought Ms Grubb might have been travelling to Adelaide or Dubbo.
She is believed to have been driving in her Holden Adventra which is a blue station wagon and has an SA registration of SO48BON.
Police broke news of Ms Grubb’s disappearance just after 9am on Monday morning by posting a statement and photographs of her on Facebook.
Her family posted her disappearance on Sunday evening after they hadn’t heard from her.
Police updated their Facebook page again with current photographs of Ms Grubb and her vehicle taken from CCTV footage before she disappeared.
“We have been in contact with a lot of stations and they all have their people looking too,” Beth said.
“It’s very out of character for her.
“By now she could be anywhere but we haven’t had anything on her accounts.”
Beth said they were thankful for the hard work of police and emergency services but encouraged everyone to check their surroundings.
“I’m extremely grateful for the police and SES but the more people look the better coverage we get.
“We just want to know that she is safe and each day gets harder.
“The police and SES have searches going and we are just asking everyone please check footage and check their property and tell everyone to check.”
Detective Inspector Michael Fuller said public assistance was crucial, particularly sightings so police could narrow down the search area.
Ms Grubb is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 160 to 165cm tall, with a medium build and green/hazel eyes.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
