THE need to find missing woman Constance Cafarella is growing more desperate as each hour passes.

Water police yesterday continued looking for Ms Cafarella, 23, who was last seen at her home on Brisbane Rd, Redbank about midday on Sunday.

About 1pm a Safe City security camera captured her on nearby Smiths Rd wearing blue long pants, a red scarf and top.

On Tuesday, police and SES volunteers started searching in a two kilometre radius of Ms Cafarella's home including Goupong Park. Police also called in their Polair helicopter for an aerial search of thick bushland that afternoon.

On Wednesday, water police joined the mounted police and police riding trail bikes in the search for the woman.

Yesterday, water police continued to search Goodna Creek while police also waded through the shallows and reeds of the creek.

Ipswich police Inspector Keith McDonald said that today the search so far would be assessed as the weekend approached.

"We'll be re-evaluating the way the search has gone; going over everything to see if we've missed anything," Inspector McDonald said.

"Everyone involved in the search has carried a GPS unit so we'll be plotting that to see where we've covered.

"We'll also be talking to state-side search and rescue co-ordinators. Then we'll sit down and work out a new strategy heading into the weekend.

"By then it will be six days since Constance has taken medication."

That and ending the torment for her loved ones are the main motivators for the searchers.

"We are quite concerned and our anxiety grows with each hour we don't find her," Inspector McDonald said.

"We want to find her alive and end the heartache for her husband and friends and family."

Ms Cafarella is described as Caucasian, about 155cm with a slim build and brown hair.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
