Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of 62-year-old Sandy Glyn who has gone missing from her Bournemouth home.
Sandy left her home in Exton Road at 5.30pm on Monday 16 February 2015, in a distressed state.
She was last seen driving away in her blue Hyundai I10 car. This vehicle was found parked on Southbourne Overcliff Drive just before 8pm.
Sandy is described as white, five feet three inches tall, of medium build and with short mousey brown hair. She was wearing glasses, a pink jumper and black trousers.
Chief Inspector Guy Shimmons, of Dorset Police, said: “We are very concerned for Sandy and her disappearance is completely out of character.
“Officers, assisted by the NPAS helicopter, Dorset Search and Rescue and the coastguard, have carried out air and land searches in the Bournemouth, Boscombe and Southbourne areas this evening. Searching will continue throughout the night.
“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen Sandy, or someone matching her description, in the Bournemouth or Southbourne areas tonight to please contact Dorset Police urgently.
“It may be that someone was walking, jogging or cycling in that area and may have seen Sandy walking or in her blue Hyundai car. Please call us with any information you may have.
“If Sandy sees this appeal, I would urge her to please make contact to let us know she is safe. Your family and friends are very worried about you.”
Anyone who sees a woman matching Sandy’s description should call Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 16:345.
