THE father of missing woman Tina Greer has made an emotional plea for new information on the eve of the first anniversary of his daughter's disappearance.

The 32-year-old mother was last seen on January 18, 2012, when she left her Beechmont home to visit her boyfriend, a patch member of the Finks Motorcycle Gang, at Clumber, near Aratula.

Four days later Ms Greer's maroon Holden Commodore was found abandoned nearby at Governor's Chair Lookout with her personal belongings inside.

Police exhausted all avenues in an extensive search of mountainous bushland in an area south of Moogerah Dam, near Boonah, before calling off further searches in June.

Ms Greer's father, Philip, has asked the public to recall any information that may help police in an effort to renew the investigation. He said the past year hadn't been easy for his family, including Ms Greer's 13-year-old daughter, who suspected Tina was a victim of foul play.

"It's been a bit hectic just not knowing what's happened to her," Mr Greer said.

"They're all going through a bad time.

"I think I know what has happened to her but that doesn't close the book. The Morcombes waited nine years to find out what happened to their son."

Mr Greer said he was reminded every day of his daughter, who would have celebrated her 34th birthday this Australia Day.

"There are things you see, then I think, 'I won't be able to do that with my daughter again'," he told The QT.

"She was my only daughter," Mr Greer said.

"We want to find out what has happened to her so that we can have a bit of closure.

"If anyone in the area saw something they might not have thought much of (at the time), to come forward as it could help the police."

A blue utility seen in the area at the time of Ms Greer's disappearance was one of the last leads given to police.

The search involved hundreds of SES volunteers, in addition to police from the cadaver dog squad, stock squad and water police.

There was also an air search and divers scoured the depths of Moogerah Dam. Acting on what they called "fresh information" on Ms Greer's disappearance at the time, police returned to the Governor's Chair area in April.

Using quad bikes and four-wheel-drive vehicles, they focused on an area covering both sides of a 7km section of Spicers Gap Rd. Nothing was found.

Ipswich Detective Senior Sergeant Gary Dixon said the case remained an open investigation, pending new information to provide police with more direction.

"We've run out every piece of information, every lead in relation to it," he said.

"We have investigated all Crime Stoppers information that has come in. There have been no further sightings or information that may suggest where she is or what happened.

"The case is ongoing and will remain ongoing until she is located."

Ms Greer is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 178cm tall with a proportionate build, blue eyes and blonde hair.

At the time of her disappearance she was wearing a long bright floral dress over a brown/orange off-the-shoulder singlet and leather slip-on sandals.

Anyone who can help police should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
