Police are increasingly concerned for the safety of a Birmingham woman, who has been missing since yesterday (Tues 5 Jan), after her car was found abandoned in Mere Green.
Lorna Ganley, aged 42, was last seen at 6.30am when she left her parent’s address in Sheldon to go to a local shop, but she didn’t return.
Police say that she might have travelled to South Shields.
Inspector Mark Watkins from Birmingham North Police, said: “I would ask Lorna to get in touch with us as a matter of urgency to let us know that she is safe and well.
“We are exploring the possibility that she may have travelled to South Shields, but equally she could still be in the midlands.”
Her car, a black Vauxhall Astra, was found in the early hours of this morning (January 6) outside the Post Office on Lichfield Road.
Concerns are now growing for her safety and police are urgently seeking her whereabouts.
Ms Ganley is described as a 5’ 9” white woman with dark straight shoulder length hair and a medium build. She was last seen wearing an olive green Parka coat, a navy blue and white striped jumper and black leggings with brown boots.
Anyone who has seen her, or who saw her parking her car in Mere Green, is asked to contact police on 101 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.
