The sister of missing mother-of-two Helen Rocha has pleaded for information to help find her as police investigating her disappearance searched a Parmelia home.
Major crime squad detectives have taken over the inquiry into the disappearance a fortnight ago of the 40-year-old.
She was last seen around Hamilton Hill or Willagee on Thursday, September 26, police believe.
Her sister Olimpia said she could not think of any reason why her sister would go missing.
It is understood her mobile phone is switched off and her bank accounts have not been touched.
“It’s horrible, the not-knowing is the worst,” she said. “It’s emotionally exhausting.”
Detectives would not say today why they were at the Parmelia property.
Neighbours of the Camfield Loop home said forensics officers first arrived about 12pm.
The property is believed to have been occupied by a middle-aged man, a woman and two teenage boys and their dog.
Neighbour Amy Bainbridge said the family had moved into the property two months ago.
She said her husband had seen the man and one of the boys playing outside the home just three days before police arrived.
"They’re very quiet, they keep to themselves," Mrs Bainbridge said.
Neighbour Vilma Brown said the family appeared "friendly".
A white Daihatsu Charade was towed from the driveway of the home while police searched the home.
Ms Rocha has an olive complexion, is about 157cm tall, of slim build, with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black top, black tights and black runners.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
