UPDATE: Hampshire Police step up search for missing Liss woman

By Post in Local People

Hampshire police are stepping up their hunt for a missing Liss woman.

Veronica Turner was last seen around 10.45am yesterday (Monday) by her husband and daughter at their home in Vinson Road in the village.

When they returned from a walk at around 12.50pm she had gone and hasn’t been seen since.

There will be a heightened police presence in the area today while officers will continue their search in the local vicinity of Vinson Road.

The 75-year-old missing woman is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall with shoulder length grey hair. She walks with a hobble and she was last seen wearing black trousers, black boots, a white jumper and a red cardigan. She may have a walking stick with her.

Inspector Marcus Kennedy said: “Veronica has difficulty walking and cannot walk far - she doesn’t often leave the house. We believe she could still be very close to home and would therefore appeal to local people to keep a look out for her.

“We’re also looking into the possibility that she could have travelled further afield and may be at a hotel or bed and breakfast outside of the local area.

"I would therefore appeal to taxi drivers, bus drivers, passengers or anyone at a hotel or B&B to let us know if they think they’ve seen her.

“Together with Veronica’s family we are very worried about her and we would ask people to help us by sharing this appeal and calling us with any information.

“There will be an increased police presence in the Liss area today as we continue to carry out our enquiries.”

Anyone with information should contact Hampshire Constabulary on 999.
