Husband of Queensland woman missing in Streaky Bay 'bewildered' by disappearance



A Queensland man is bewildered by his wife's disappearance on South Australia's west coast, as a fifth day of searching fails to find any sign of her.

Clifford Schutt described his wife Julie of 25 years as a kind woman full of love for her friends and family, and says he desperately wants to find her. 

"I'm very up and down and moments of falling apart and just numb and then it's all bits and pieces," he told 9News.

The couple were on a South Australian road trip and arrived at Streaky Bay on Sunday afternoon. 

Clifford said he went out to pick up some dinner menus and when he got back she was gone.

The last time she was seen was on CCTV, which shows her walking down the street and heading towards the road out of town.

"It's just completely bewildering why she… yeah we just.. don't know what's happened."

Clifford described his wife as soft and kind, and as a woman is always willing to help in their rural community.

They have three sons together, one of whom is still in high school.

Today, police, the CFS and SEs crews have today turned their attention to farmland surrounding the Streaky Bay township, speaking with property owners and searching their sheds.

However, there is still no sign of Julie.
