About 20 officers have been searching for a woman who has been missing from her Cornwall home since the weekend.
Police are becoming "increasingly concerned" for Meryl Cameron, 54, from Canonstown, near Penzance, who was last seen in the early hours of Saturday.
Her car, a white Renault Megane with a black roof, was found parked in a lay-by at Hells Mouth, near Hayle.
Mrs Cameron is described as 5ft 3in (1.6m) tall, of medium build, with short-bobbed blonde hair.
Hells Mouth is on the north cliffs of Hayle, near the holiday resorts of Gwithian, Godrevy and Portreath.
The area, about eight miles (13km) from Mrs Cameron's home, has cliffs up to 300ft (90m) high and is popular with dog walkers and surfers.
Devon and Cornwall Police said officers had set up an incident room and had been searching cliffs and Mrs Cameron's home.
A police helicopter searched the area around her home.
Acting Supt Mike Ward, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "We are putting a lot of resources into exploring all avenues and options as to where she could be.
"Our desire is to find her safe and well."
The cliffs had been especially busy over the Easter Bank holiday weekend with holiday makers, the force added.
