The 33-year-old, known as Kelly, was last seen leaving her home three weeks ago.
Ms Zhang’s partner, 35-year-old Joon Seong Tan, has since been charged with her murder.
Police are urging the anonymous caller to make contact again.
Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper says they’re yet to find anything indicating Ms Zhang’s whereabouts in the area.
“Unfortunately we haven’t found anything that we were looking for, but we will continue,” he said.
“The reality is that this area all flows in to a fairly significant parkland area, so all of this area is of interest to us from what we know of that incident on that night.”
