THE parents of missing Toowoomba woman Emma Gover have confirmed she has been heard from in Melbourne.

Her father Ken Gover said the 30-year-old had posted on her Facebook account from somebody else's computer.

"She's in Melbourne and doesn't want to be contacted by anyone.

"Police are looking for her still, but she's hiding out."

Mr Gover said the family was relieved she was in Melbourne and unharmed.

"We're anxious for her to contact us," he said.

Ms Gover had been missing since 6.45pm on June 23 when she left her Nichols Rd home in Highfields.

Police issued an alert on June 29 saying she was  wearing a thick grey cardigan with black knee-length tights, brown boots and a scarf.

Police said they held concerns for her welfare as the behaviour was out of character.

Ms Gover had worked part-time at the North Point Coffee Club before her disappearance.
