The search for Samantha was scaled back over the weekend, and despite efforts by the public and emergency services, no sign of Ms. Murphy has been located.

Yesterday, a vigil was held for Samantha at the Buninyong Anglican Church, with dozens attending to pray for the 51-year-old.

Police are calling for any CCTV or dashcam footage in the Ballarat East, Mount Helen and Buninyong areas between 7am and 11am on the 4th of February.
