POLICE have launched a major search today of the Aratula and Clumber area and Main Range National Park after fresh information about missing woman Tina Greer came to light.

Ms Greer, 32, was last seen in the Beechmont area at 2pm on Wednesday, January 18, and has not been found despite extensive searches of Lake Moogerah and surrounding areas.

The search will involve police and 120 SES volunteers through remote sections of the Main Range National Park by foot, 4WD and quad bikes through extremely steep and rugged terrain and thick vegetation.

Ipswich Detective Senior Sergeant Gary Dixon said new information was behind a refocussed search of the area.

"We've made the decision to really focus on that area so we can either rule it in or rule it out," Det Snr Sgt Dixon said.

"We've searched areas around where her car was found but today we'll go from the top of Governor's Chair all the way down both sides of Spicer's Gap Rd for about five to six km.

"We've got about 120 SES volunteers and a whole heap of other support staff."

Det Snr Sgt Dixon said the search was part of an ongoing commitment to the investigation.

"Police would like to thank all of the volunteers who have utilised their skills in the search," he said.

"We continue to encourage the community to come forward with any information, no matter how small - anonymously if required."

Investigators from State Crime Operations Command's Homicide Investigation Unit and Southern Region and the State Emergency Service will search the area.

Initial information has suggested Ms Greer was travelling to Aratula, near Lake Moogerah, in a 2003 model maroon Holden Commodore with Queensland registration 067 MDE.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au.
