POLICE may have wrapped up the search for Gail Lynch, but family members have now taken it into their own hands.
On a Facebook page created by Ms Lynch's family, Help Find Gail Lynch, her niece Jas McLaren posted that she, friends and other relatives had scoured the region on a search of their own.
"Myself, Sherri (Ms Lynch's sister) and a couple of others have been searching a couple of locations but unfortunately have come across nothing at this stage," Mrs McLaren posted.
"It's like finding a needle in a haystack out there, but we feel so much better out there looking for Gail, while at the same time it's frustrating coming up with nothing."
She wrote at the weekend she had searched around Bracker Rd, with others looking around the Sandy Creek area and Warwick Showgrounds.
Mrs McLaren said the support from friends and strangers that had flooded in on the Facebook page meant the world.
"I just want to thank all the people that searched today. I know some of you had some unpleasant experiences," she wrote.
"Just know we are forever grateful for your help!"
Detective Inspector Darrin Shadlow said police had no more searches planned at this stage.
"We've conducted an exhaustive search to date and there are no further searches planned at this stage unless we receive some information," Det Insp Shadlow said.
He advised anyone conducting their own searches to be careful.
"We just ask that if they do come across anything that they contact police straight away and leave everything where it is," Det Insp Shadlow said.
Accused murderer Ian Hannaford remains in police custody and is due to reappear in court on October 29.
