Dr Reddy, a dentist from Penrith, was attending a dental convention at St Leonards on Sydney's north shore over the weekend.

CCTV footage shows Ms Reddy at a McDonald's inside the Strand Arcade in Sydney's CBD about 2.15am on Sunday.

Following inquiries, police located a vehicle in Strachan Lane in Kingsford just before 9.30pm on Tuesday.

After a public appeal for information from authorities, her body was found just before 9:30pm last night in a suitcase inside a parked vehicle on Strachan Lane in Kingsford.

The ex-boyfriend of an Australian woman whose body was found stuffed into a suitcase has died in a auto crash.

ABC reports the last known images of Reddy were captured at a George Street McDonald's in Sydney's CBD at around 2:15am on Sunday, only a few hours after the conclusion of the Mardi Gras parade.

Investigators said they have since been notified that the man later died in a head-on collision on the New England Highway in Willow Tree, just outside of Tamworth, about 10pm on Monday night.

Police had earlier disseminated images of Reddy and of her missing grey Volkswagen Golf in an effort to locate her.

She then left the store alone, and walked south on Market Street.

She spoke to her family around 11am on Sunday, but they raised the alarm when she did not return home.

A Facebook Group called "Help find Preethi Reddy" had been set up by the family to assist the investigation.

She said she didn't think too much of it, as it was "quiet" and there was "no indication it was a murder".

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding her death and are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Preethi's disappearance is "out of character" and there are serious concerns over her welfare, a New South Wales (NSW) Police spokeswoman said. She was described as "highly professional yet friendly and approachable".
