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.
