Grave concerns held for NSW woman missing for over 2 weeks

Grave concerns are being held for a 52-year-old woman who vanished from a home in Mittagong over two weeks ago.

Kathleen Lidden was reported missing by her family on Wednesday 14 June after having left the family home the previous day on foot, and not returning.

Police said Mrs Lidden did not take any of her personal belongings with her and that her disappearance is considered to be out of character with grave concerns being held for her wellbeing.


To assist in establishing the last known movements of Mrs Lidden, police have released an updated CCTV image of a woman they believe she may have crossed paths with.

“Whilst this person is not considered a person of interest, detectives believe she may be able to provide information regarding her movements,” police said in a statement.

It’s thought the two women crossed paths about 12.40pm on Tuesday 13 June outside a day spa on Old Hume Highway, Mittagong.


Mrs Lidden is described as being 162cm tall, with a thin build, and short brown hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow/cream coloured fleece jumper, thick grey tracksuit pants, white joggers, white scarf, and carrying a dark brown/black backpack.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers or Bowral Police Station on 4862 9299.
