Police received 50 tip offs about where missing millionaire Melissa Caddick might be

Police have looked into 50 tip offs about where missing millionaire Melissa Caddick could be in an investigation spanning four states - but come up empty. 

Ms Caddick, 49, vanished on November 12, two days after a Federal Police raid on her $6.1million Dover Heights home for allegedly stealing tens of millions in investors' funds. 

Some of the tips came from people claiming to have seen Ms Caddick in public, while others offered up information about where she might be. 

Their search has focused on Queensland, South Australia and Victoria, as well as New South Wales.

Ms Caddick, 49, vanished on November 12, two days after a Federal Police raid on her $6.1million Dover Heights home for allegedly misappropriated tens of millions' in investors' funds 

The search briefly included the Northern Territory after police noticed her husband received phone calls from the Top End.   

Earlier this week it was revealed the accused fraudster may have fled to Queensland.

At that time Ms Caddick went missing, the Queensland border was closed to residents of the greater Sydney region.

But the state's borders did open to Sydney on December 1 and remained that way for a few weeks before the Covid outbreak in the city's northern beaches.

The Queensland theory came to light as NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller all but confirmed that investigators believe Ms Caddick is alive and on the run. 

'We are treating the case as she is still alive,' the commissioner told Radio 2GB's Ben Fordham breakfast program on Tuesday.

Mr Fuller said police are still searching for CCTV footage, doorknocking Dover Heights residents and 'downloading information from her cars (and) computers'.

Ms Caddick had been under investigation by the corporate regulator, ASIC, for at least three months before her sudden disappearance on November 12.

ASIC was probing whether her company Maliver Pty Ltd had misused millions from investors. The victims were largely friends and associates.

Two days before she went missing, ASIC secured a Federal Court order against her and her company.

The corporate watchdog alleges Ms Caddick would open up fake CommSec accounts for her clients and send them fake monthly reports of how their shares were going

She was banned from travelling overseas and her assets were frozen. Ms Caddick's home was raided by the Australian Federal Police that same day.

Ms Caddick is also accused of splurging on luxury brands such as Dior and Chanel, overseas holidays, limousines and even protein shakes.

An affidavit seen by Daily Mail Australia states that $20million of investors funds were deposited into her accounts between January 2018 and September 18, 2020.

The corporate watchdog alleges Ms Caddick would open up fake CommSec accounts for her clients and send them fake monthly reports of how their shares were going.
