Coodanup man Chris Lampard has pleaded for the Mandurah community to help find his wife, who has been missing since Tuesday.
Carole Livesey was last seen at Rockingham Hospital about 12.15pm on Tuesday, October 3, and Mr Lampard said he had been driving the streets trying to find her.
“It’s very difficult for me, obviously,” he said.
“I’m getting a lot of support and I’ve been amazed at the response I’ve been getting from friends and people I hardly know.
“People are very compassionate and that is one of the things that’s come out for me, just how kind and generous people are.”
Mr Lampard said the important thing was to share her photo as widely as possible in the hope someone might recognise her.
“She’s wearing a cast on her right arm which goes from the shoulder to the hand, I do think that’s quite a distinguishing feature, so that might help people identify her,” he said.
“The last time I saw her was on the Sunday before the Tuesday that she left the hospital.
“I went to the hospital and sat there and had quite a long chat with her.”
Mr Lampard said she was in a fragile state of mind and it was very important that people phone the police if they see her.
Ms Livesey is described as 165-170cm tall, with a very slim build, brown hair, blue eyes, fair skinned, and wearing a nose ring.
She has an English accent and was last seen wearing a light blue shirt and black pants.
Police said Ms Livesey has a distinctive blue-coloured cast on her right arm (from shoulder to wrist), set at approximately 30 degrees.
Anyone who sees her is asked to call police on 131 444, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
