Police searching for a missing Chester-le-Street grandmother are distributing posters around the town appealing for sightings of her - Pamela Jackson hasn't been seen since the 2nd of March.
Pamela was last seen at the home in The Crescent she shares with her youngest son, 21-year-old Joe.
There has been no trace since then of 55 year old Ms Jackson, who has not been in contact with either friends or family by phone, message or via Facebook.
As well as Joe she has sons, Andrew, and Christopher, and is a grandmother to four.
Originally from Newcastle she has lived in Chester-le-Street for the last twelve years.
Last night and today officers have been handing out posters at various outlets in the town centre urging anyone who might have seen Pamela, or been in recent contact with her to get in touch.
She is also known to many people as 'Cris' or 'Crissie' as her middle name is Christina and in the recent past she has also gone under the surname 'Bullerio'.
Supt Graham Hall, who is leading the police investigation into Ms Jackson's disappearance said:
"One of our main actions is to flood the local area with these posters and get our officers out in the town, speaking to people and building up a picture of Pamela's lifestyle.
We have already learned Pamela often visited local charity shops and other places in the town, and these potential leads will be actively followed up over the coming days."
A nationwide alert has also been set up so that every force in England and Wales has been circulated with details of Pamela Jackson and her photograph.
Alongside the missing persons enquiries a separate, but overlapping murder enquiry is under way involving the force's major crime team and detectives from area CID teams.
This has led to a 50-year-old man from Halifax, Adrian Muir appearing at court on Monday charged with the murder of Pamela Jackson.
He was remanded in custody to appear at Newcastle Crown Court today, Wednesday 13th March.
Forensic work is continuing at the family's three-bedroom house in The Crescent, and detectives from Durham are liaising with their colleagues in West Yorkshire.
