POLICE are appealing for help from members of the public as they investigate the disappearance of 45-year-old woman Leisa Layne from Atkinson Dam which her family say is out of character.
Ms Layne is a long-term resident of Atkinson Dam Caravan Park with her husband, and she was last seen on Friday night when she went to the toilet block at the caravan park.
This morning Insp Keith McDonald from Ipswich police said they were now into the second day of the search.
"Leisa was last seen around 9pm on Friday at the Atkinson Dam caravan park walking towards the toilet block and hasn't been seen since," Insp McDonald said.
"Our fear is for her welfare and her safety, the last couple of days have been extremely hot and two days without food and water Lisa can become quickly dehydrated and lapse into unconsciousness before she knows it."
"The concern for us is the circumstances concerning her disappearance," he said.
"She was walking through a caravan park and seen by a number of people and the next minutes she's just disappeared and the next thing people remember is her husband asking if anyone had seen her."
Insp McDonald said the family raised the alarm on Saturday.
"Lisa was in high spirits and there was nothing in her life that would give concern to her mental well-being," he said.
"She was normal self and walked the dog and did things that normal people do."
Insp McDonald said the two police helicopters have been involved in the search as well as water police, Seqwater, SES volunteers from around the region.
"Seqwater have conducted a search of the waterline early this morning and there are no unusual impressions on the shore line," he said.
"We have absolutely no leads, she left everything behind, so that's why we're appealing to members of the public if they've seen Leisa or know Leisa and they know where she may have been to contact us."
