Dr Preethi Reddy, a dentist from Penrith, was attending a dental convention at St Leonards on Sydney’s north shore over the weekend. She last spoke with her family at about 11am on Sunday, telling them she planned to head home for a late breakfast.
Police have established Dr Reddy was later seen in a McDonald’s on George Street in the CBD about 2.15am.
Inside the restaurant, footage shows Dr Reddy standing alone. Photos from NSW Police shows her at the counter. She then left the restaurant and walked south through the city towards Market Street.
Dr Reddy is slim with long black hair and dark eyes, of Indian Sub-Continental appearance. She was wearing a dark green long-sleeved top, black pants, a taupe handbag and ballet flats.
Police think Dr Reddy drove her VW Golf to St Leonards on Friday, but are yet to locate the vehicle.
The grey Golf’s registration is DFP 78P.
Can’t emphasise strongly enough how crucial it is that someone finds this car TODAY. It belongs to Preethi Reddy, who remains missing. Please share, please keep a look out. pic.twitter.com/dZNhq8hYuq
