    New Zealand - Blesilda 'Blessie' Gotingco, 56, Auckland, 24 May 2014


    Supplied MISSING: Blesilda Gotingco 56, was last heard from at 6.21pm yesterday when she spoke to her son to say she was leaving work at 7pm and would catch a bus back to her home in Birkdale.

    "Police have set up a free call number in a bid for help finding an Auckland woman who has ''disappeared''.

    They have no leads on the disappearance of Blesilda Gotingco, (also known as Blessie), 56, who went missing last night close to her Auckland home.

    There are serious concerns for the woman after she failed to return from work on Saturday night and items of her personal belongings were found on the street near her home in Birkdale.

    Gotingco's daughter found her mobile phone and her shoes on the grassy verge a short distance from their home on Salisbury Road, by tracking the phone's GPS after she discovered her mother had not returned when she finished work at 315am.

    The items were spread out in "disarray" across the berm, but there was no sign of a struggle, according to police.

    The free call number is 0508 LYNSEY or 0508 596 739."

    "Police believe Gotingco took the bus home from her work at Tower Insurance Ltd on Fanshawe St in the CBD, however, they are unsure of which bus she took.

    She was last heard from at 6.21pm yesterday when she spoke to her son to say she was leaving work at 7pm and would catch a bus back to the North Shore.

    The buses are believed to not have CCTV and police have not yet spoken to the drivers.

    "We want to hear from passengers who travelled on those buses - either a number 973 or 974 bus - last night, at any point along its route from Fanshawe St to Birkdale Road. We obviously want to hear of any sightings of Blessie since 7pm last evening," Brown said."

    *****************************************

    "The family are distraught and Gotingco's husband who is in the Philippines has been spoken to and is making arrangements to return to New Zealand, police said.

    Gotingco is Filipino, of medium to slim build, about 5'3" tall (162cm) and has dark shoulder-length hair. She was last seen wearing a white top and and light-coloured trousers.

    Anyone with information about Blesilda Gotingco should call either 0800 596 739 or Waitemata CIB directly on (09) 213 7890."

    Read more: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=11261505
    3 News reported a neighbour saying she heard loud and frightened screams about 8pm, followed by the sound of a loud "low-slung" car driving away.

    Mr Brown said it was unknown what had happened to Mrs Gotingco after she got off the bus.

    "We actually don't know what happened after that. Blessie was a family woman and she was reported missing by one of her adult children who she lives with.

    "They're very concerned about what's happening with Blessie at the moment."

    Mrs Gotingco's personal belongings, including her shoes were later found in disarray, Mr Brown said.

    Mother of three Blesilda Gotingco had planned to get a ride home with her best friend when she finished work on Saturday, but declined the offer after volunteering to work late.

    At 6.30pm, the 56-year-old, known as Blessie, phoned her son to say she would be catching a bus from the Auckland CBD shortly after 7pm. She never made it home.

    Screams were heard near her home in Salisbury Rd, Birkdale, and belongings, including her phone and shoes, were found near the closest bus stop, just 636m from the house.

    Family of missing woman 'very worried' - Monday May 26, 2014
    Read more: http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/fami...orried-5981216
    Police said in a statement this morning that "Blessie's family are understandably very worried and are coping as best as can be expected".

    A Filipino woman, who says she works with Ms Gotingco's son, told ONE News she is very concerned and endured a sleepless night.

    Investigators will return to the area where Blessie's belongings were found to speak with people in the immediate and extended areas today.

    Sophia Fonua told ONE News her 10-year-old sister heard screams on the night Ms Gotingco went missing. The items belonging to Ms Gotingco were found outside their house.

    Police say there were no significant developments in the investigation overnight, and say they will work through information gathered during yesterday's scene examination.

    Looks like the bus takes about 45mins to get to Blessie's stop in Birkdale, according to Google.
    If she took the 7:20 bus, she would have been there a little after 8pm .. when the screams were heard.
