Police 'extremely concerned' over missing Catton pensioner

The Northern Echo: Janis Hall, who disappeared two weeks ago Janis Hall, who disappeared two weeks ago

POLICE are continuing to appeal for information about a pensioner who disappeared two weeks ago.

Janis Hall, 65, was reported missing from her home in Catton, south-west Northumberland, on Thursday, December 19.

She had spoken to a relative on the telephone at about 3pm.

Her children appealed for her to come home for Christmas but no further contact was forthcoming.

Mrs Hall is described as being 5ft 4ins tall, of medium build, with short grey hair.

She wears glasses and may have been wearing a green fleece coat, black trousers and a black Russian-style fur hat.

Police have conducted a number of searches and more will be carried out this weekend.

Superintendent Gillian Mitchell of Northumbria Police said: “It’s now been two weeks since Mrs Hall was last seen and understandably her family are distraught that she has not been home for Christmas or New Year.

“They are beside themselves with worry and desperate to hear news of her whereabouts.

“Clearly the inclement weather conditions and the fact this is out of character for Mrs Hall lead us to be extremely concerned for her welfare.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Northumbria Police on 101.
