The search for a missing Ballarat woman has entered its second day following a public plea from her family.
Angela Tulloh has not been seen since leaving her residence at a Brown Hill residential assisted care facility on Monday afternoon.
The 43-year-old’s sister Rebecca says she is often non-verbal and prone to self harm, but that the length of this disappearance is out of character.
“It’s not unusual, but it has been quite a while since she has done it previously. It is out of the blue,” she said.
Police have confirmed no trace of Angela has been found since leaving the facility on Monday.
Rebecca has urged caution for anyone who does come across her sister.
“If you see her, approach her quietly, don’t startle her, and call 000 straight away so we can get Angela the help she needs,” she said.
Anyone who sights or with information about Angela is urged to call Ballarat Police Station on 5336 6000.
