- Search underway for missing Highlands woman Kathleen Lidden
- Police divers join search for Kathleen Lidden
Kathleen Lidden is a mother of five. She loves cooking, growing vegetables and making art.
But the last time she was seen was on Tuesday, June 13.
After more than a week of searching her family has appealed to the community to help bring her home.
Kathleen’s husband David said her family and friends love her dearly and are very worried about her.
“No matter where she is, there is nothing we can’t work through and help her with,” he said.
“[Kathy] come home.”
David said that Kathleen had not been her “usual and contented self” before her disappearance.
“She was preoccupied over the last few days [before she went missing] she had some worries about another family member’s health,” he said. “Looking back in hindsight you could say she was out of sorts.”
Kathleen was last seen about 12.30pm on June 13 at Mittagong Shopping Village on Pioneer Street, where she was captured on CCTV footage.
David said it was not unusual for Kathleen to leave and go to the shops throughout the day, but not to return was totally out of character.
“So much of her life is within a short radius of home so to be gone for a long period of time is unusual, we were worried by mid afternoon,” he said.
David said he last saw his wife on the corner of Bowral Road and Bessemer Street between 11.30am and 12.30pm on Tuesday.
Initial searches for Kathleen began with a PolAir helicopter on June 14, with a search of Mt Gibraltar and surrounds.
