NSW detectives are treating the mysterious disappearance of a businesswoman from her cliff-top mansion in Sydney’s eastern suburbs as suspicious.

Melissa Caddick left her Dover Heights home early last Friday morning and is believed to have gone for a run, but didn’t take her wallet, keys, or mobile phone.

Three days before she vanished, Australian Federal Police raided her Wallangra Road property as part of an ongoing investigation by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

Documents obtained by the ABC reveal the 49-year-old was served court orders recently preventing her from leaving Australia or selling any of her assets.

On Friday, Detective Inspector Gretchin Atkins urged anyone in the area to check their CCTV or dashcam to help with the investigation.

“We have some serious concerns for her personal safety – she did not take any of her personal belongings,” she said.

“She hasn’t been in touch with her husband, her son, her family or any of her friends since and we’re actually appealing to anybody who has seen anything.”




Disappearance of Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick treated as suspicious​

NSW detectives are treating the mysterious disappearance of a businesswoman from her cliff-top home in Sydney's eastern suburbs as suspicious.

On Friday, Detective Inspector Gretchen Atkins urged anyone in the area to check their CCTV or dashcam to help with the investigation.

Her husband, Anthony Koletti, remained composed when he fronted the media on Friday during a public appeal for information outside Bondi Police Station.

He described her disappearance as "extremely out of character".

"Melissa is a dedicated and incredible mother, a beautiful daughter, sister and loved wife — we are asking the community to help bring Melissa home — that is all," he said, reading from a statement.

Mr Koletti said he was asleep when his wife left their home about 5:30am last Thursday.

Major twist in search for missing millionaire Melissa Caddick as the accountant's colleagues hand some VERY interesting information to police - and she could soon be NSW’s ‘most wanted’​

Missing financial adviser Melissa Caddick could soon be one of 'New South Wales' most wanted woman' as police move one step closer to placing her on the notorious list.

The 49-year-old Sydneysider is alleged to have stolen about $25million from investors in a pyramid scheme before vanishing without a trace from her Dover Heights mansion one day after fraud investigators raided her home in November.

Her disappearance has been shrouded in mystery but NSW Police are growing more certain the alleged conwoman is still alive and on the run.

In the past week former colleagues claimed to police she went on a shredding spree after learning she was under investigation by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, reports say.

It is understood police are preparing to open a criminal investigation alongside the missing persons probe, and even add her to NSW's most wanted list.

The family of missing Sydney woman Melissa Caddick will lose their living allowance, as the suspected fraudster continues to be investigated for breaches of criminal and company law.

The federal court heard on Monday that there was only $5,600 left in bank accounts in Caddick’s name.

The Nine Network has reported that surveillance cameras on Caddick’s property were disabled when she disappeared because the hard drive had been taken during the Asic raid, but that other cameras in the street had not recorded any sign of Caddick.

Her family told police they suspected she had gone for a walk the morning she disappeared, but she was not reported missing until 30 hours later by Koletti.

Fendekian said that the fact Caddick was still missing, and that her assets were mostly in her name, rather than that of the company in which her suspected victims had invested their money, were some of the complexities in the case.

Man, I feel bad for anyone who was innocent of knowing what she was up to - even those who depended on her to get by.

The body of missing businesswoman Melissa Caddick has been found on the NSW South Coast more than three months after she disappeared from her home in Sydney's eastern suburbs.
The 49-year-old did not take her mobile phone, wallet or keys when she left her Dover Heights home to go for a run, just before sunrise on November 12.
Ms Caddick had not been seen since.
Prior to her disappearance, her eastern suburbs home was raided by investigators from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
ASIC alleged she was misappropriating investor funds through her financial services company, Maliver, and operating without a licence.
The Federal Court this week heard forensic reports of Ms Caddick's company run into "hundreds" of pages and investors were in the process of trying to recoup millions of dollars they gave to her.
More to come.

So, her 'foot' was found on February 21st, 2021 and on February 24th, 2021 a positive DNA match was made?! In 3 days?? Am I the only one who is appalled that in the US this process sometimes takes years for the results?

I actually got sidetracked earlier but was going to respond to this as well and it is not just how quick they had results... Which was one thing that was odd... But also, first this is a surprise she is dead and second, it does not clear or close this case imo because there are still big questions and hokey things going on here... I mean their cameras WERE NOT working and apparently purposefully at home... I am curious whether they are going to call this a suicide or murder... And, a foot?

So there is no doubt she probably made some enemies amongst the people she defrauded to think murder is possible, and clearly her life would have been about to fall apart if considering or calling it suicide, BUT again, she went for a walk/run or whatever, no sign, no cameras, no sightings from the home onward... The puzzle pieces do not fit together yet at all... Imho.

Not sure what to think. They definitely won't be able to get cause of death or determine much of anything from a foot.

I know many places here in the States won't close a missing persons case if only their foot is found. "You can still live without your foot." Seems pretty unlikely, but I suppose it's possible.

There is a case I was following (still unsolved I think) in this past perhaps two years and I believe a woman disappeared near Indianapolis. It was like outskirts, it was not Indy PD in charge but a smaller area. They found some of her things strewn after a bit of time... Like maybe ID and stuff like that but not right in the area she disappeared from. Then some time later (awhile) way north I believe closer to Gary, IN someone found a foot that was hers and it was identified fairly quickly first because of a tattoo... The tattoo may have been her name if I remember right. I believe based on that they decided she was dead, did not close the case, but called it "now" a death investigation...

I couldn't help but feel it almost seemed as if someone wanted the foot recognized as hers to throw off the area, any search, or the investigation. This Caddick one here is giving me the same feeling...

Just speculation but just seems odd... In that case, it was all that was ever found and it was in a not huge or frequented body of water and yet no other parts of the body found...

The lenghts some people will.go through when they have the financial ability, too.

Was just her foot or her body found?

Just watching a Youtuber who started saying a foot in a shoe but through the rest of the video she then keeps saying her body "being found" etc. If it's just the foot, I find her then using the term body throughout as entirely misleading.

Another thought is calling her dead so quickly based off of a foot would certainly ease the release of any life insurance...

Police expand search for Melissa Caddick’s remains after grim beach finds​

Police have broadened their search of beaches on the NSW south coast in their investigation into the case of missing Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick.

It follows the discovery of two bones on Tura Beach, south of Mollymook, on Saturday by a member of the public.

The bones will undergo a forensic examination to determine whether they are animal or human.


More remains found on south coast as Melissa Caddick case baffles cops​

More remains have washed up on the NSW south coast, some within the vicinity of where Sydney conwoman Melissa Caddick’s decomposed foot was found.

But there’s a chance the new find could add even more mystery to the already complex case.

Hours later human remains, including what appeared to a human torso, were found on a Mollymook beach.

The remains are undergoing forensic testing to help determine who they belong to.

If confirmed to be Ms Caddick, it would put to bed theories that she could still be alive.

However, there’s a chance they belong to a snorkeller who went missing off Batemans Bay in late January.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Toyboy' DJ husband of Melissa Caddick in line for a '$1million payout' after the conwoman took out a life insurance policy on HERSELF before she vanished – as her foot washes up on a beach months later​

Melissa Caddick may have left behind a million dollar lifeline for her unemployed husband, just as Anthony Koletti and her family face being evicted from her properties.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal the Sydney conwoman - whose lost foot has been found washed up on a remote beach - forked out at least $120 per month on a life insurance policy.

Caddick's regular payment was revealed by her brother Adam Grimley in court documents where he tallied her family's living expenses after she disappeared in November.



The revelation of the life insurance policy raises several questions with few clear answers.

Could investors claim a right to the proceeds? Who did Caddick nominate to get a payout? And is suicide covered by Caddick's policy?

Contrary to popular belief, many life insurers do actually cover suicide - as senior police last week said they suspected Caddick's death to be.

'Most life insurers offer some form of cover if the life insured (the person who is covered by the policy) dies by suicide,' said Finder insurance expert Taylor Blackburn.

'However, there is usually a 13-month exclusion period after the policy is first taken out where cover will not apply.

'This is used to discourage people from taking out life insurance and then committing suicide soon after.'

Of course, the cause of Caddick's suspected death isn't yet known - with police yet to rule out foul play as officers compile a report for the state coroner.

Whether it is her or not, for me, it is not going to satisfactorily answer all questions. The outcome either way is just going to bring more questions.

One of the things the discovery of the "foot" made me think of was needing a body for life insurance, although it is not my only theory. The timing too considering the husband and son were just cut off from the allowance kind of stands out.

I don't get why her brother would be tallying her family's living expenses for the court once she disappeared. That seems a bit strange to me, perhaps to assist her son and husband? She was not declared dead so it would not be like a will and testament situation, she was missing.
