POLICE APPEAL OVER MISSING WOMAN

Tanya Smith: last seen wearing a lilac t-shirt, dark navy-blue cropped trousers and black and navy-blue sandals.

Kent Police are concerned about the welfare of a woman who did not return her home in Lydd on the evening of Tuesday 6 September. Tanya Smith was last seen leaving the life skills centre in Cobbs Mews, Christchurch Road, Folkestone at 3.30pm. Tanya is 30 years old but has a mental age of eleven.

She is described as having fair skin, blue eyes, light brown short hair parted on the left and small oval shaped glasses.

Tanya was last seen wearing a lilac t-shirt, dark navy-blue cropped trousers and black and navy-blue sandals.

She was also wearing a pink plastic charity bracelet, a pink, orange and red, and orange interlocking charity bracelet and a multi-coloured bead bracelet. She was carrying a black and grey backpack, a carrier bag and a blue cool pack lunchbox.

Tanya normally walks to the old Nat West bank building on Bouverie Road West, crosses over to the Chinese takeaway on the junction with Sandgate Road and goes to the bus stop where she catches the number 12 bus at 3.48pm to Lydd. Sometimes she catches a later bus, the 711 at 4.10pm.

Anyone with information on Tanya's whereabouts are asked to call police in South East Kent on 01303 850055.
