Police are urging members of the Warburton community to check their properties as they search for a cherished grandmother who has now been missing for almost a week.
Susan Shaw was last seen out on a walk in the leafy town of Warburton, about 72 kilometres east of Melbourne, at about 1.30am last Friday.
Investigators have asked residents in the Warburton area to check their holiday homes, sheds and outhouses for Ms Shaw as they believe she could be sheltering somewhere nearby.
Police also said they would like to speak to a camper after a witness reported seeing a tent pitched roadside on Mount Donna Buang Road in Warburton with a bike next to it. Police hope the tent’s owner might have information that could help them find the 67-year-old.
