Posters put out in hunt for missing Chester-le-Street grandmother, Pamela Jackson
DETECTIVES are to "flood" the area where a grandmother went missing with posters in the hope of discovering where she is.
Pamela Jackson, 55, of the Crescent, Chester-le-Street, County Durham, has not been seen since March 2, when she was at the home she shares with her youngest son, Joe, 21.
Since then there has been no trace of Ms Jackson, who has not contacted friends or family by phone or text message or updated her Facebook page.
Adrian Muir, 50, of Calder Terrace, Halifax, West Yorkshire, was yesterday (Monday, March 11) remanded in custody by magistrates at Consett, County Durham charged with murdering Ms Jackson.
Despite this development, police are also treating the disappearance as a missing persons enquiry.
Officers have been distributing the posters throughout Ms Jacksons home town urging anyone who might have seen or had recent contact with her to get in touch.
Superintendant Graham Hall, of Durham Constabulary, who is leading the investigation, 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."
As well as Joe, Ms Jackson has two other sons, Andrew, 35 and Christopher, 27 and is a grandmother-of-four. Originally from Newcastle she has lived in Chester-le-Street for 12 years.
She is also known to many as Cris or Crissie, as her middle name is Christina, and has also used the surname Bullerio.
Every police force in England and Wales has been sent details of Ms Jackson and her photograph is being circulated nationwide.
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.
Mr Muir is due to make an initial appearance before a judge at Newcastle Crown Court tomorrow (Wednesday March 13).
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police on the non-emergency 101 number.
