POLICE divers have now joined the search for a mother, missing in Far North NSW for nearly three days.

49-year-old mother-of-one, Amber Christie, was last seen leaving her home in Evans Head around 4.15pm on Sunday.

Her family contacted police later that evening after she failed to return home.


A large-scale search, involving officers from Richmond PD, Police Rescue,  olAir, SES, Richmond Valley Council rangers, and NSW Surf Life Saving, spent Monday and Tuesday tirelessly searching for Ms Christie. However, there has so far been no sign of her.

Amber is described as being of Caucasian appearance, between 160cm-165cm tall, with a medium build, golden brown hair and hazel eyes.

She was last seen wearing tights, a long sleeve grey jumper and a backpack.

Police are now urging anyone in the Evans Head area who may have dashcam footage or CCTV footage from Sunday afternoon and night to come forward.
