Mrs. Schulkins was last seen leaving a home in Caboolture South after previously visiting a property on Morayfield Road in Burpengary.
The mother’s disappearance has prompted a state-wide police investigation and has caught the attention of more than 17,000 people across the country.
Police described Ms. Schulkins as a “high risk” person and said they had no “starting point” to work with in their search for her.
Mrs. Schuklins had about $ 300, food, and a tank of gas before she disappeared.
Ms. Schulkins’ sudden disappearance has captured the hearts of thousands of Australians who have banded together to find her
“We have followed up on every reported sighting and a lot of false feedback has been received,” Sergeant Richard Curran told the Sunshine Coast Daily.
‘Zero positive observations, not been here or anyone else. It’s frustrating.
“We’re doing everything we can, but it’s as if she has completely disappeared from the face of the earth.”
Ms. Schulkins’s sudden disappearance has sparked a flood of community support from Australians who have banded together to find her.
Seventeen thousand people have joined The Search Team for Amy Schulkins Facebook group, where locals offer to pay for drones to search the area for traces of the missing mother.
Rebecca, Mrs. Schulkins’ wife, took to the page to discuss theories about her wife’s disappearance.
‘Did she run away with another woman? Could be. Questionable, but maybe. We don’t see her abandon her kids (or me, for that matter), ”she wrote.
Rebecca shed no light on why Mrs. Schulkins rammed anyone’s gates the night she disappeared.
“Whatever happened that night does not alter the fact that my wife is still here,” she wrote.
She said that while the couple had been drinking the night of her disappearance, Mrs. Schulkins was not drunk.
Volunteers have already combed bushland across Mount Hallen, Crossdale, Lowood and Atkinsons Dam – 100km west of Brisbane.
The campaign describes Ms. Schulkins as a ‘loving and devoted’ wife and mother with the ‘most infectious mind and laugh’.
“While the financial burden of looking for someone can never be compared to the emotional burden, it is a significant added stress at a time when a family should be able to focus only on their missing loved one,” the page reads.

The creators of a Go Fund Me said Ms. Schulkins said they will not stop until Ms. Schulkins is found.
They created the page on behalf of Rebecca, Ms. Schulkins’ partner.
“We need all the support we can find from generous and kindhearted people, as well as the 6,000 new friends on our search team,” the page reads.
“We won’t stop until we find Amy, and we believe someone out there has seen or knows something that will help us find her.”
