Police and State Emergency Service volunteers will search an area of bush south of Boulder tomorrow in the search for clues to find missing book keeper Veronica “Ronnie” Messina.

Ms Messina was reported missing on June 28, and friends initially told police they had not seen the 62-year-old since June 23.

Since then, detectives have found security camera footage of Ms Messina in the Boulder Bunnings store about 1.30pm on June 25.

Publicity regarding the case prompted a witness to come forward this week to report finding Ms Messina’s two beloved shih tzu dogs wandering near the Goldfields Highway between 5pm and 5.30pm on June 25.

Acting Det-Insp. John Hindriksen said police also had information to suggest Ms Messina’s white 2005 Holden Commodore had been at the bush site close to where her dogs were found.

That car was found abandoned and unlocked in a carpark at the Kalgoorlie Airport on June 28 – the day a friend reported the well-known Goldfields businesswoman missing.

Ms Messina was the oldest of six children, and two of her brothers made an emotional plea for information regarding their sister’s whereabouts.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
