GYMPIE police will await confirmation that missing Nambour woman Sarah-Grace Leahy is alive and well.

It was believed she could have travelled to Gympie to visit some friends.

She had not made contact with her father or two children since.

The family contacted police with information of her disappearance because of fears for her welfare.

Ms Leahy was described as being Caucasian, about 162cm tall with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
