Search for PD woman
THE FAMILY of a Port Douglas woman who went missing overnight on Tuesday are “extremely worried”.
Police are asking for help to find Jessica Hamill, 20, after she went missing from her Limpet Avenue home before 2am on Tuesday.
It is believed she may be with a male known to her and may be held against her will.
Acting inspector Mick Gooiker said police were “very concerned” for her safety.
“Her family and friends are extremely concerned for her and we are trying anything we can to locate her as soon as possible,” he said.
“The girl’s parents are extremely worried about their daughter and we are just trying to locate her to see if she is okay ... Anyone in this situation would be horrified – it is their daughter.”
Police received a call this morning after Ms Hamill did not show up for work.
Her housemates were the last people to see Ms Hamill before she went to bed about 2am.
“It is believed they are driving in the Tablelands area, but they could be anywhere,” Act Insp Gooiker said.
Ms Hamill is described as caucasian, about 170cm tall and of medium build, with blue eyes and sandy blonde hair.
They are possibly travelling in a black 2012 model Holden Commodore station wagon with black wheels fitted.
