Great grandmother Janet Bacon (74), of Abbott Road, has not been seen or heard from since around 1.30pm on Thursday 15th September and is believed to have travelled away from Mansfield by bus.

Her worried son, Cliff, said: “We are very concerned and we hope someone comes forward with information which helps the police find her as soon as possible.

“I have been up to Sutton because she lived in the town for a lot of her life.

“We think she could have walked around a mile by herself but slowly because she suffers arthritis - but she could have gone further by bus.”

Janet is around 5ft 7ins tall, of medium to large build, and has shoulder length grey hair and blue eyes. She is said to look young for her age.

She was wearing dark trousers and a blue top - and also has a distinctive red metal walking stick decorated with flowers and a black leather handbag.

Janet is known to have taken a quantity of arthritis medication with her.

Extensive police searches have been undertaken since Thursday and are continuing.

Said Pc Leanne Beecham: “We believe Janet may have caught a bus from Mansfield and headed into either Nottingham city centre, Chesterfield or Alfreton. We are appealing to anyone that travelled on a bus after 1.30pm on Thursday who believes they saw Janet to contact us immediately.”

l Anyone who believes they have seen Janet or knows where she may be should contact police on 0300 3009999.
