It’s been 48 hours since she was last seen and our concerns grown with every hour she remains missing. She has no access to money, transport or a phone that we are aware of. The weather last night was freezing and we can only hope that she has found shelter.
“It’s very out of character for her to go missing and information from the public is vital to our search. Anyone who has seen her, is urged to contact us – no matter how insignificant you think the information is. Or better still, if Carol hears or sees this appeal, please get in touch with the police, your family or friends and let us know that you are safe.”
Anyone who has seen Carol or knows where she is now, is urged to call North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the Force Control Room.
