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.”
Melissa Caddick's husband has urged anyone who has information on his wife's whereabouts to come forward.
Melissa Caddick hasn't been seen since she left her Sydney mansion early last Thursday. The 49-year-old's home was raided by the AFP the day before she vanished as part of an ongoing ASIC 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.
