Police are appealing to the public for help to locate a mother-of-two missing from the Newcastle area.
On Friday 30 January 2009, police attached to Waratah Local Area Command were contacted by a concerned husband in relation to his wifeís disappearance.
Karen Michelle Carrigan, of Maryland, was last seen by her husband about 6:30am on Thursday 29 January as he left their home to attend his place of work.
He has told police he spoke to his 30-year-old wife about 1pm that day, but when he returned home with their two children about 4:40pm that day, she was not there.
Mrs Carrigan was due to attend work the following day, but did not show up for her shift and has not contacted her workplace.
Family and friends of the couple have not heard from the missing woman.
It is not believed Mrs Carrigan has accessed any money in her bank accounts.
Whilst there is evidence to suggest Mrs Carrigan returned home in the afternoon of Friday 30 January, police investigating her disappearance now hold serious concerns for her safety.
Mrs Carrigan is described as being about 175cm tall, with streaked blonde hair and brown roots, with a thin to medium build, three earrings in each ear and a nose ring with snakes on the side of her nose. She has a Japanese symbol tattooed on her left foot and green flowers and stems tattooed on her ankle.
Anyone with information about Mrs Carriganís whereabouts is urged to contact Waratah Police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
