Police find car, woman still missing

Police have found a car belonging to a 79-year-old woman missing in far north Queensland.

Hildegard Falkenberg was last seen at her home at Tolga on the Atherton Tableland, south-west of Cairns, on Monday.

Police have been searching the area for Ms Falkenberg, who suffers from a medical condition.

She is described as 168 centimetres tall and has grey hair and blue eyes.

Police divers search for missing woman Liah Falkenberg

A CHANGE to Lia Falkenberg's regular daily routine first alerted her friends that something was wrong.

The alarm was raised when the 79-year-old missed her daily visits to the post office. No one has seen or heard from her in about 10 days, The Cairns Post said.

Now, Mareeba police have stepped up a ground search for Ms Falkenberg around Tolga and have called in officers from the homicide and dive squads in Brisbane.

Before she was reported missing, Ms Falkenberg kept regular contact with members of her church congregation and close friends.

Police are piecing together Ms Falkenberg’s movements since she was last seen on September 6.

Police say hopes of finding her alive are fading.

"Because of her age and her frailty, it is a concern to us," Far Northern region crime co-ordinator Det Insp John Hartwell said.

Her blue four-wheel-drive was found bogged and abandoned on an isolated dirt road after a 16sq km helicopter search of the Tableland.

The remote track, a few kilometres from Ms Falkenberg’s home at Bones Knob, is the back access to a rural property but detectives do not know why she was in the area.

"We believe that Ms Falkenberg suffers from early onset dementia and recently has become confused," Det Insp Hartwell said.

The car was found locked on the side of the road and there were no signs of trauma in the vehicle.

Detectives also have not found any clues at her Bowcock Rd house as to where she is.

But as the search continues, officers are treating the disappearance as suspicious and foul play has not been ruled out.

The dive squad will search a large private dam near Draney Rd where her car was found.

Ms Falkenberg is described as being 168cm tall with white hair and blue eyes.

If you have an information call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
