Search for two missing women

A Werribee woman missing since last Wednesday accessed her bank account on Friday, police have revealed. However, there is still no news of second woman who was last seen on Friday night.

Police this morning urged Sandra Pevitt, 45, to contact them and let her family know she is OK, after discovering she had withdrawn money two days after her disappearance.

Ms Pevitt last spoke to her partner Paul Czech at her Werribee home about 8.30am on November 7, but has not made contact with any other family members or workmates.

It is believed she told a family member that she was going to see a doctor but police say she did not have an appointment with her regular GP and did not attend that day.

Mr Czech said he was shocked by the disappearance as it was out of character.

Ms Pevitt is described as Caucasian, 167 centimetres tall, medium build, with blonde shoulder-length hair.

On Wednesday, she was wearing blue jeans, a grey sports top, brown-and-white knitted jacket, frameless glasses and white runners with a pink trim.

Her silver 2010 Hyundai i30 wagon is also missing, and has a registration of XVL 284.

Meanwhile, friends and family of missing Melbourne woman Katie Dircks have flooded social media in the hope of tracing her.

The playwright and Melbourne Theatre Company employee was last seen leaving work in South Melbourne on Friday night, heading for her Elwood home.

The 30-year-old has not been seen since catching a tram from Sturt Street to Flinders Street about 7pm.

’’We are all really worried about her. If anyone sees her or has any information, please contact me or get in contact with the police,’’ a post on Tumblr said.

Ms Dircks emailed a friend about 11.30am on Saturday but has made no further contact with family or friends.

Family are concerned for her welfare as she requires regular medication.

Ms Dircks is described as Caucasian, about 156 centimetres tall with a solid build, long brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a navy blue dress with buttons down the front and a black cardigan with white lace pockets.

Anyone with information on either of the missing women is urged to contact CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.
