Police conducting ‘extensive’ Gold Coast search after woman escapes hotel quarantine

Police are currently scouring parts of the Gold Coast after a woman escaped hotel quarantine overnight.

The 24-year woman was directed to isolate at a quarantine hotel in Broadbeach back on August 2, a police spokesperson told myGC.

Police allege she was then able to escape from the premises by forcing access through a glass door and fleeing the area.


Luckily, the woman was swabbed for coronavirus yesterday and those results have since returned negative.

However, she was only a few days into her 14 day isolation period.

Police are currently conducting ‘extensive searches’ throughout the area, in the hopes of finding her as soon as possible.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact police immediately.
