The car of a Boulder woman missing for more than a week has been found at Kalgoorlie airport but there is no indication that she left on a plane, Major Crime Squad detectives revealed this morning.
Veronica Kaye Messina, 62, was initially thought to have been last seen on Saturday afternoon, June 23.
But police have said today that she was seen at a Bunnings store in Kalgoorlie with her partner two days later. He has been interviewed by police along with several other people.
Police have security vision from the Bunnings store.
Detectives will examine the car for further clues about Mrs Messina's disappearance.
Friends and family have serious concerns for her welfare.
Mrs Messina has not accessed her bank account, has not contacted friends or family and left her pets unsupervised at her unlocked Federal Street home.
A friend said it was out of character for the Mrs Messina, who owns a local book-keeping business, to go missing or even leave her mobile phone turned off.
The friend said alarm bells started ringing last week when the reliable businesswoman missed appointments with long-standing business associates.
“This is a busy time of year for her business, it’s the end of the financial year.”
“She doted on her two little dogs and she would not have left them without organising for someone to look after them.”
Mrs Messina is described as being 178cm tall with a slim build.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts or her movements should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
