EXCLUSIVE: Wealthy Sydney businesswoman was raided by police and slapped with a court order banning her from selling her home or fleeing Australia TWO days before she went missing from cliffside mansion
A wealthy businesswoman who disappeared from her cliffside Sydney mansion a week ago was raided by authorities and slapped with a court order two days before she vanished.
Melissa Caddick, 49, is believed to have left her $7 million Dover Heights home in activewear about 5.30am last Thursday, without her phone or purse. She hasn't been seen since.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal plain-clothed Federal Police officers executed a search warrant on the mother-of-one's home last Tuesday as part of an investigation by the corporate watchdog, the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.
据《每日邮报》报道，上周二，澳大利亚证券与投资委员会(Australian Securities And Investment Commission)对这位有一个孩子的母亲的住所执行了搜查令，这是澳大利亚证券与投资委员会(Australian Securities And Investment Commission)调查的一部分，联邦警察身着便衣。
'They had undercover police there on the Tuesday and they were just taking out clear bags filled with computers, papers, files and documents,' one neighbour said.
'We were just like: 'What is going on?'
That same day, Ms Caddick was hit with stringent court order banning her from leaving the country, ordering her not to sell any property and demanding she not transfer money offshore from her 17 bank accounts.
ASIC took Ms Caddick to the Federal Court and successfully had her banned from selling, mortgaging or disposing of her assets.
The court order bars her from removing any money from Australia including from a lengthy list of bank accounts - including one solely in US dollars.
Ms Caddick was told to hand over her passport to the court within 24 hours and produce information about the sources of her income.
Justice Jayne Jagot also ordered she surrender 'the name, physical address, email address and phone number of each person who currently has funds deposited' with her company for investment purposes, plus the location and amount of that money.
Ms Caddick was warned that if she disobeyed the court orders she would be 'liable to imprisonment, sequestration of property or other punishment'.
An ASIC spokeswoman declined to explain why Ms Caddick was under investigation as the agency's probe is 'ongoing'.
Neighbours were stunned by last week's raid, telling Daily Mail Australia she and her husband kept to themselves.
Residents on the Wallangra Road block had set up a WhatsApp group to check in on each other in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The missing woman and her husband were the only household not involved, the neighbor claimed.
'We know pretty much the whole block except them, it's very weird.
'You'd see him (Mr Koletti, a DJ) out the front occasionally, but most of the time you only hear him revving his car or the music blaring.'
Ms Caddick was last seen after midnight last Thursday.NSW Police detectives believe she left home about 5.30am that morning, dressed in her jogging gear.
A neighbour told Daily Mail Australia the couple 'seemed very happy, she seemed to be a successful businesswoman and she had a son who lived with her and with the dad.
'It's just odd… we're all a bit shocked that something like that could happen around here.'
The eagle-eyed local took a photo when NSW Police officers showed up at the house on Friday, just three days after the home was raided. This time, they were there to find a missing person.
Officers have since walked the streets around the area looking for potential CCTV footage that would show which way Ms Caddick went after leaving her home.
The police search today entered its seventh day and Ms Caddick's distraught husband broke his silence to say he is 'very worried'.
Anthony Koletti told Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper: 'It's really hard, I'm very worried, all I want is for her to be found.
'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.'
Ms Caddick has had a long career as the managing director of companies including a social media consulting firm known as Cadley Consulting Group.
卡迪克曾长期担任多家公司的董事总经理，其中包括一家名为卡德利咨询集团(Cadley Consulting Group)的社交媒体咨询公司。
That company describes itself as working in 'the convergence of social media and sales performance and marketing.'
In 2004, Ms Caddick wrote an opinion article describing herself as a financial adviser.
Her most recent business was as a director of Maliver Pty Ltd, which was subject to the ASIC action.
她最近的业务是作为Maliver Pty Ltd的董事，该公司受到ASIC的诉讼。
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.
Anyone with information about Ms Caddick's whereabouts is urged to contact NSW Police. Her ASIC court case returns to the Federal Court for hearing on November 27.
