A woman reported missing in Queensland has been located, with her male companion assisting police with inquiries.

The 32-year-old from Gracemere was located on Monday night after detectives issued a plea for public assistance in finding her.

Detectives had earlier said the woman was seen on Christmas Eve in a station wagon in Rockhampton, being driven by a 33-year-old man and travelling south.

Police advised not to approach the vehicle or its occupants, but to immediately call triple zero.


“Both the man and woman have been located,” Queensland Police said in a statement.

“The woman is safe and seeking medical attention and the man is currently assisting police with their inquiries.”

Krystal Phillips, 32, has been reported missing by family who hold concerns for her welfare and safety.

Police believe Ms Phillips is travelling south in a blue 2014 Holden Trax station wagon driven by a 33-year-old Gracemere man, Jaydon Leahy.

Police understand the pair to be in a relationship.

Jaydon is described as Caucasian, about 176cm tall with a solid build, short brown hair and blue eyes.

Krystal is described as Caucasian, about 160cm tall with a proportionate build, and blonde hair with purple streaks.

She has tattoos on her right upper arm and possible facial injuries.

Rockhampton Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Jason Milner said police wanted to check on Krystal’s welfare.

“We have concerns that she has not contacted her family on Christmas Day; she has an 11-year-old son she hasn’t contacted,” Detective Sergeant Milner said.

“Police have located a vehicle registered to Ms Phillips at Rockhampton on Christmas Eve and attempted to stop it, however it evaded police at that time.”

Detective Sergeant Milner said Krystal was seen with facial injuries on Christmas Eve, which was why police held concerns, but said he was not certain whether or not she was being held against her will.

The blue station wagon has Queensland registration 050CN5 and has a damaged or missing side window on the front driver’s side.

The vehicle was later involved in a petrol drive-off at a Gympie service station on Ross River Road about 8.35am on Christmas morning.

The vehicle was twice spotted later on the Warrego Highway, at 5pm on Sunday at Oakey and again at 10.50am on Monday at Miles travelling westbound.
