Body of missing dentist Preethi Reddy found in a suitcase in Sydney's east

In her first public comments since her sister's violent death, Nithya Reddy paid tribute to her "beautiful big sister".

NSW Police described Reddy's disappearance as "out of character" and said there were serious concerns of her welfare.

"Do any of my dental friends (especially IAADENT ones) know the whereabouts of my Preethi Reddy please?"

"On behalf of my family, I want to thank anyone who shared our appeals to find her, and those who provided information to the police and us over the last few days".

The body of Dr Narde's ex-girlfriend Preethi Reddy, who had been missing since Sunday, was found stuffed in a suitcase in a parked vehicle on Strachan St in Kingsford at 9:30pm last night.

Inside the restaurant, footage shows Dr Reddy standing alone.

The western Sydney woman had spent Sunday in a hotel on Market St in the CBD with Dr Narde, a fellow dentist who was also believed to have attended the convention.

However, police believe that Narde travelled the 400 kilometres from Tamworth to St Leonards for the continuing education course with the sole objective of seeing his ex-girlfriend.

Dr Reddy's current partner, Sunny Vemula, this afternoon took to Facebook to post a photo of the couple with a short message.

Narde did not have a violent criminal history or a record of domestic or family violence, a police source told AAP.

She had been stabbed multiple times and stuffed inside a suitcase.

Dr Reddy drove her VW Golf, registration, DFP 78P, throughout the weekend.

Detectives are investigating the crash, which they believe was deliberate.

The statement added: "We ask that everyone keep that in mind that we are grieving and we need space to do that".

"Words can not capture the pain we are feeling with the passing of my lovely big sister", she said.

The 32-year-old South Penrith dentist had been in a tumultuous on-again, off-again long-distance relationship with fellow dentist Harshwardhan Narde for several years.

NSW Police said the investigation was still in its early stages. "As a parent, the worst thing we can do is bury our kids".

Dr Reddy has not been heard from since speaking to her family about 11am on Sunday.

The scene of the fatal crash on the New England Highway.

She told her family she would head home after a late breakfast, and when she failed to return, her family contacted police.

Police released the last images they had of Reddy at a McDonald's on George Street in the city centre after Mardi Gras on Sunday morning at 2.15am.

She is depicted in the CCTV as wearing dark-green long-sleeved top, black trousers, and black ballet flats, and carrying a taupe-coloured handbag.

A Facebook page was set up soon after Dr Reddy went missing, calling for people to "help find Preethi Reddy".

The ABC understands Dr Narde was the key suspect in Dr Reddy's murder. "We appreciate your understanding during this delicate time".

"We will miss him beyond words".
