Extensive Exeter search reveals no clues on pensioner

At 8am this morning the team were called, along with North Dartmoor and SARDA search dog teams, to assist in a search for a high risk missing person on the outskirts of Exeter.

The ground included a mix of environments including urban streets, parkland and woodland with areas of dense bramble, nettles and scrub.

It has been a long day and we would just like to thank the members of the public who very kindly refreshed our volunteers with cups of tea and some food. It is very much appreciated.

She is described as around 5ft 5ins, grey hair, proportionate build, active and sprightly. She does not have a stoop as mentioned in the previous release.

She was seen visiting the nearby Co-op store at different times on Friday.

Police believe she was last seen at 3pm in Heron Way, St Thomas, looking dazed and confused. She may have headed towards Cowick Street or the St Thomas area of Exeter.
