Police are seeking public help as they attempt to find a woman missing from the Lake Macquarie area for five days.
Bernadette Thompson, 41, was last seen leaving a meeting in Belmont late last Wednesday night.
Police believe Ms Thompson may be in the Illawarra region, after her mobile phone was found by a patron at a bowling club at Bulli last Friday.
She is described as 165 centimetres tall, medium build, with short, wavy brown hair and blue eyes.
