The husband of a Sydney businesswoman who vanished without a trace almost a week ago has issued an emotional plea for her to come home.
Mother-of-one and managing director Melissa Caddick, 49, was last seen at her Dover Heights mansion in Sydney’s eastern suburbs just after midnight last Thursday morning and hasn’t been seen or heard from anyone since.
Police were told she left her $7 million clifftop home a few hours later around 5.30am wearing jogging gear but weren’t notified about her disappearance until 24 hours later.
Ms Caddick didn’t take any money, mobile or personal possessions with her, according to police.

There are grave fears for the SalesXecution managing director’s safety and welfare as the extensive police search entered its sixth day on Wednesday.
Her husband of seven years Anthony Koletti is struggling to come to terms with her sudden disappearance.
‘It’s really hard, I’m very worried, all I want is for her to be found,’ he told the Daily Telegraph.
‘We’ve been married seven years, we’ve known each other a long time.’
‘I’m doing everything to help detectives find her, it’s really hard, I just want to find her. Right now I’m chasing every lead possible, all I want is to find her, this is very hard …’
The publication revealed Ms Caddick’s disappearance happened the same week Australian Securities and Investments Commission officials lodged legal proceedings against her.

Ms Caddick was the managing director of SalesXecution, a sales performance and Social Media consulting firm formerly known as Cadley Consulting Group.

‘For more than ten years, SalesXecution has been working with emerging internet communication and Sales process technologies working closely with world class Sales & Marketing leaders and corporate communicators to integrate these tools into an organization’s sales and marketing strategies,’ its LinkedIn bio states.
Ms Caddick is described as Caucasian, 165cm tall, slim build and has long brown hair.
She was last seen wearing a black singlet top and leggings, and silver ‘Nike’ sneakers.
