The search for a missing Melbourne mum who disappeared from a small seaside town has entered its fourth day, with her family pleading for her safe return.
Elisa Curry, 42, was last seen on Saturday night at Aireys Inlet, a small town on the Great Ocean Road, with widespread air, land and water searches failing to locate her.
It was initially believed the mum-of-three went for a run with her dog at 10.30pm on Saturday, but that is now unclear, police say.
"She was seen in her bed around 10pm on Saturday night but there's been no sign of her since," Inspector Peter Seel told 3AW radio on Wednesday.
"It is doubtful that she went jogging at 10pm at night, more than likely it would (have been) on the Sunday morning, if she went jogging."
Her dog, a black labrador, was found on Monday in a neighbour's backyard.
Ms Curry's husband, David, pleaded for her or anyone with information about her whereabouts to come forward.
"We just want her to come home. Elisa if you're out there can you please contact us?" he pleaded on Tuesday.
"If anyone has seen anything or heard anything, can you please, please call police, please call triple-zero."
She is described as Caucasian, about 167cm tall, with an athletic build, brown eyes and brown shoulder-length hair.
