Police renew calls for information on missing woman, Northern NSW

NSW Police have renewed calls for information, over a woman who went missing late last year.

42-year-old Thea Liddle was last seen in the Mooball area in Northern NSW on Thursday 31 October 2019.

Her family reported her missing in Queensland in January, with Queensland Police then getting in touch with New South Wales Police.


A strike force was established to investigate the disappearance, which resulted in the search a property along Tweed Valley Way in Mooball, which Thea was believed to be living in at the time with a man, then-aged 46.

Police executed a crime scene warrant at that property on Wednesday this week (April 29), which continued into yesterday as well. Investigators seized a number of items from the property.

Police are once again calling on the public for any information into Thea’s whereabouts.

She’s known to frequent Mooball, Nimbin and Byron Bay areas. Police say she lived a nomadic life but would always come back and touch base with her family.

They’re hoping to speak to anyone who may have seen or spoken to Thea in late October or early November, in and around the Far North Coast area.

Police and her family hold grave concerns for her safety as there has been no activity from her bank accounts or mobile phone since early November 2019.

“We are exploring a number of lines of inquiry, and we want to speak to anyone who could have any information which may assist detectives,” Det Ch Insp Cullen said.

As investigations into Thea’s whereabouts continue, anyone with information which may help detectives is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

If you have information for Police, please contact NSW Police on 131 444 or provide information using their online form 24 hours per day.
