    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."

    Thanks for starting this thread. Hope this lady is found safe and sound soon, but it doesn't look good since finding some of her belongings. Preying for a safe return xx

    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.
