VISITORS to the North-East coast are being asked to keep an eye out for missing mum Carol Door who was last seen at her County Durham home on Monday.

Earlier in the week there were several unconfirmed sightings of her in the Whitley Bay area, although police are keeping an open mind as to her whereabouts.

The 42-year-old was last seen on the morning of Monday, February 11 leaving her home in Frank Avenue, Seaham.

She is described as being white, 5ft 7in tall, with short, dark brown hair.

She was wearing a long black coat, blue jeggings with a white woolly hat and was carrying a black over the shoulder handbag.

Sergeant Richard Knott, from Durham Constabulary, said: “We would appeal for anyone who sees Carol to get in touch with us as soon as possible as we are growing increasingly worried about her welfare.”

Anyone who has seen Carol, or knows of her whereabouts, is asked to call Durham Constabulary on 101, quoting incident number 314 of February 11.
