Search continues for young Gold Coast girl missing in NSW

Police in New South Wales are now treating the disappearance of a young Gold Coast girl in the Blue Mountains as suspicious.

Charlise Mutten vanished from a property at Mt Wilson, 60km north-west of Richmond, on Thursday.

A massive search involving local police, the Dog Unit, PolAir, along with the SES, Rural Fire Service and NSW Ambulance has been ongoing ever since, but they have so far been unable to find any trace of the youngster.


The nine-year-old, who had been living with her grandmother at Coolangatta, was spending two weeks with her mother and her fiancé when she disappeared.

There is no suggestion neither the mother nor the fiancé were involved in the disappearance.

The young girl is described as being of Caucasian appearance, between 130cm and 140cm tall, of thin build, with brown hair and brown eyes.

It is believed she was last seen wearing a pink top with a round neck collar, a black knee-length skirt and pink Nike thongs.

The search is being ramped up today, with more than 100 personnel now involved.
