Missing Mansfield Woman
19 September 2011, 06:10
For the second time in three days police are asking for the public's help to find a woman who went missing from Mansfield on Thursday.
Janet Bacon's family say it's totally out of character for her to disappear for so long without getting in touch.
The 74-year-old was last seen at 1.30pm on Thursday.
Officers think she may've caught a bus into Nottingham city centre, Alfreton or Chesterfield. She also travels into Derbyshire.
PC Leanne Beecham of Nottinghamshire Police said:
"Janet regularly uses public transport to travel around Nottinghamshire and in the past has travelled into Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
"We believe Janet may have caught a bus from Mansfield and headed into either Nottingham city centre, Chesterfield or Alfreton. We are appealing to anyone that travelled on a bus after 1.30pm on Thursday who believes they saw Janet to contact us immediately."
Janet is described as:
- Around 5ft 3ins
- Medium to large build
- Shoulder length blonde hair and blue eyes
- She was wearing dark trousers and a blue top at the time she went missing
- She also has a red metal walking stick and carries a black leather handbag
Police are continuing with their searches for Janet.
Anyone who believes they have seen Janet or knows where she may be should telephone 0300 300 99 99.
