UPDATE 2.40pm:

SHARON Edwards's red Holden Cruze is now parked outside the Lawrence General Store in hope it will jog someone's memory as to the Grafton teacher's whereabouts.

It is unknown whether her car was in the area after the last confirmed sighting of Sharon on the night of March 14, as it was found parked at her Riverdale Crt home in Grafton, but police hold hopes it may spark a lead.

Police have been door-knocking in the Lawrence area yesterday and today, speaking with more than a dozen locals. The police command truck is also parked outside the general store.

Inquiries are still heavily focussed on her whereabouts.

Police revealed they spoke with Sharon's estranged husband John Edwards earlier today in what was a general wellbeing check and to return some of his property.
