Police have appealed for sightings of a car as they investigate the disappearance of North Shore woman Cissy Chen four months ago.

Chen, 44, an accountant, disappeared on the evening of Monday, November 5 – Guy Fawkes night – from her Torbay home.Her partner told police she had gone for a walk in Long Bay and had not returned.

Police believe she is dead and launched a homicide investigation soon after her disappearance. Despite extensive searches, her body has not been found and no arrests have been made.

Police tonight appealed for sightings of a white 2002 Nissan Pulsar stationwagon in the Bays, Albany and Rosedale areas on and around the night Chen went missing.

‘‘Sightings of this white 2002 Nissan Pulsar are absolutely crucial to our ongoing investigation,’’ Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Megan Goldie said.

Police believed Chen’s body was buried in a secluded location, such as a green belt or bush reserve.

‘‘I want to urge people walking, cycling and exercising in secluded bush areas around the North Shore and wider Waitemata District to be aware of anything or any area that appears suspicious and may be of interest to the team investigating Cissy's death,’’ she told TV2’s Police Ten-7 programme.

Police wanted to bring the investigation to a close, with the help of the public.

‘‘As is often the case in many police investigations, it will be the public that provides the vital information we need to solve this and bring the offender or offenders to justice.’’

Anyone with any information about Chen’s disappearance, particularly anyone who remembers seeing the Nissan Pulsar on Guy Fawkes Night should phone North Shore Police on 0800 CISSY (0800 24779) or the Police Ten-7 phone number on  0800 107 4636.
