Search for missing woman in South Otago

11:54 am on 11 September 2008

Searchers have scoured dense scrub and steep gullies in South Otago looking for a missing woman.

Dianne Lane-Wright, 45, has not been seen since Monday afternoon when the truck she was driving was found down a 40-metre bank.

Balclutha police are appealing for owners of cribs in the search area, around Bull Creek and Chrystalls Beach, to come forward with keys to their properties so they can be checked.

Police say Mrs Lane-Wright has a history of depression and they do not believe she was in the truck when it rolled down the bank.
