"We believe she is well into her four wheel driving and we believe she may be out there," Sgt Curran said.

"However. it's very similar to Beerwah State Forest, difficult terrain, really hilly.

"The Polair can do thermal imaging and do observations as well.

"She is a high-risk person, so we are trying every effort we can."

Sgt Curran said Ms Schulkins suffers from a medical condition but understood she has medication for "day to day".

A social media group titled The Search Team for Amy Schulkins has also been set-up on Facebook and has attracted more than 2000 members since her disappearance.
