Police are appealing for help to locate a missing Newcastle woman.
Tatiana Chessa, who is 47 and from Colby Court in Newcastle, has not been seen since leaving her home address just before 9am on January 2.
Tatiana is around 5ft 6ins tall, of large build and was last seen wearing a royal blue woolen jumper, green coat, khaki green cargo trousers, a plastic poncho wrapped around her waist and blue Crocs shoes with thick socks underneath.
Officers do not have any photographs of Tatiana but do have CCTV images of her leaving her address on January 2.
These images show that when she left, Tatiana was wearing a black balaclava that covered her hair and face and was carrying a large number of plastic bags containing empty food and drink cartons.
Tatiana suffers from health issues and officers are concerned for her welfare and want to find her as soon as possible.
Anyone who thinks they have seen her, or who has any information that may help police locate her, is asked to contact 101.
