A man who disappeared on Christmas Day has been located in Queensland, and is now believed to be alive, a spokeswoman for Queensland police said.
The woman, who is not being identified, went missing in the Gold Coast on Christmas night, leaving her family desperate for answers.
“The family is now asking the public for assistance locating her,” a statement said.
“We are aware she is located and are working closely with Queensland Police.”
The woman was last spotted in the area of Greenhill and Warington streets on Christmas morning, and was described as about five feet tall and 160 kilograms.
Her disappearance came amid a massive manhunt for a man who authorities believe was the last person to see her alive.
The man was described by police as Caucasian, in his mid-twenties to late forties, and had short dark hair.
The search is still ongoing for the man who was described in media reports as a Caucasian male, wearing a dark grey hooded sweatshirt and grey trousers.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
