Ms Dougherty had two other dogs with her.

She told her son that she would be searching near the rubbish tip area at the back of her home which backs onto a forestry area, however she failed to return.

Police and family are concerned for her welfare as she has a medical condition and this is out of character.

The dog she was looking for has since returned home, but the two she was with are still missing.

Ms Doughterty is described as Caucasian with a proportionate build, brown hair and blue eyes.

She was wearing a pink blouse and shorts.

A search and rescue mission area coordinator (SARMAC) is on the scene at Barkles Road and is coordinating the search.

Aerial assistance from the Bundaberg RACQ LifeFlight helicopter is being provided.
