Concern over woman's mystery disappearance

POLICE say the disappearance of a Warrnambool woman is out of character and have appealed to the public for help.

Louisa Corr (pictured) was last seen on Thursday, January 23 at her workplace on Hopkins Road about 3.30pm.

Yesterday, police released a photo of Ms Corr, 39, and a spokeswoman said police and Ms Corr’s family had concerns for her welfare as the disappearance was out of character.

Acting Sergeant Adrian Dolman, from Warrnambool police, said Ms Corr had been reported missing by her partner and concerns were initially raised when she didn’t turn up for work.

He said there had been no contact with her employer and there had been no indication of foul play or suspicious circumstances.

Acting Sergeant Dolman said concern was raised because Ms Corr’s disappearance was not normal behaviour for her.

He said all police needed to know was that Ms Corr was safe.

“If she’s just gone to get away then that’s fine, we just want to know she is safe and well,” he said.

Police have been told Ms Corr made contact with her family on Monday.

Ms Corr has been described as being 175cm tall, of slim build with long, brown and blonde hair.

She was last seen wearing navy blue shorts and a dark shirt.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Ms Corr is urged to call the triple-0 emergency number.
