The search for a missing woman continued in the area of Cape Spear on Sunday.

Judith Skanes, 50, was first reported missing shortly after 5 p.m. on Saturday. It's believed the last contact anyone had with her was around 9 a.m. that morning, when she was in the area of Bradbury's Road in Portugal Cove-St. Philip's.

But a source told CBC that the woman's SUV was found later Saturday in the parking lot at Cape Spear, 

That prompted the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, along with members of the Rovers ground search and rescue team, to begin scouring the coastline and woods for clues to the woman's whereabouts.

Police said they may provide an update with more information later Sunday, but no time was given.

They're also asking the public to avoid Cape Spear while they investigate Skanes' disappearance.

The woman is described as being about 5' 4" and 150 pounds, with shoulder-length blonde hair and blue eyes. She's also known to wear dark-rimmed glasses, but it's unclear what she was wearing when she went missing.
