Police have released a CCTV image of a woman they believe may have crossed paths with missing Mittagong woman Kathleen Lidden.
Mrs Lidden, aged 52, was reported missing by her family on June 14 when she failed to return home after leaving the previous day on foot.
In an effort to determine Mrs Lidden’s last-known movements, police would like to speak to the woman in the CCTV image.
She is not considered a person of interest.
It’s thought the two crossed paths about 12.40pm on Tuesday, June 13, outside a day spa on Old Hume Highway, Mittagong.
The appeal comes as police investigate several unconfirmed sightings of Mrs Lidden, including one at Sydney airport.
Bowral Police Inspector John Klepczarek said police had received many local and interstate calls about unconfirmed sightings.
Mrs Lidden did not take any of her personal belongings with her and her disappearance is considered to be out of character.
Police from the Hume Local Area Command have established Strike Force Aeons to coordinate the investigation into her disappearance and efforts to locate her.
Previous searches conducted in the Mount Gibraltar bushland area, the Lake Alexandra area and extensive canvassing of the Mittagong Central Business District have failed to locate Mrs Lidden.
Mrs Lidden is described as being 162cm tall, with a thin build, and short brown hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow/cream coloured fleece jumper, thick grey tracksuit pants, white joggers, white scarf, and carrying a dark brown/black backpack.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
