Missing Edmonton woman Vera Stockwell located near her home
4pm: EDMONTON mother-of-four, Vera Stockwell, was located this morning just after 6am by a member of the public.
Ms Stockwell was found by a member of the public shortly after 6am. She was taken to Cairns Base Hospital suffering from dehydration and shock.
Yesterday, Ms Stockwell's brother Don Stockwell was pleading for the 35-year-old, who he described as a "happy-go-lucky sort of person", to make contact with the family after she was last seen walking west along Wiseman Rd, Edmonton, between 5pm and 6pm on Monday.
"We all love you and we all want you back here," Mr Stockwell said was the message he wanted to convey to his sister.
He said Ms Stockwell had never been missing for such a long period of time and her four children, aged between 11 and 18, the youngest of which was the last to see her, were extremely anxious.
Ms Stockwell's sister, Sarah Cook, said she had put notices along the highway and talked to truck drivers when she travelled from Townsville to Cairns earlier in the week.
"She loves fishing and camping and that; she would be staying off the highway so if anyone sees her at any headlands or anything like that (contact police)," Ms Cook said.
Ms Cook said police had been searching near Behana Gorge, south of Cairns, yesterday.
