Posters have appeared on Penarth Esplanade appealing for information about a 57-year-old woman who’s been missing from home in Cardiff for three weeks.
South Wales Police search teams, divers and dog handlers are searching across the area and on Penarth Esplanade posters bearing Ms Ridout’s photograph have been posted inside the telephone kiosk outside the Pier Pavilion.
The posters are amongst 1,000 printed by the charity “Missing People”
Ms Ridout was last seen at the Premier convenience store on Gabalfa Avenue on January 31st and there have been no confirmed sightings since. South Wales
A police diving team using sonar equipment has been brought in to search the River Taff because Ms Ridout’s family had said that was “where they believed Lorraine might be” – although in fact there’s no evidence that the missing woman entered the river. Meanwhile police dog teams have been combing the Gabalfa area of Cardiff – so far to no avail
Police are asking anyone with any knowledge of Lorraine Ridout or her whereabouts to call 101.
